The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – August 14

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

I survived a hellish week. Migraines, a painful sunburn, thunderstorms, and multiple tornado warnings accompanied window-rattling wind gusts and power outages. News of a death in the family, general fatigue, unrelenting migraines, and work pressures combined to squash any creative juices I hoped to eke from the pittance of energy that remained. I amassed an astonishing total of 195 countable words.

Dismal, I know. Tragic even. But, since I look at the bright side, and with the bar set so low, I figure I am poised to post stellar percentage improvements next week. It is bound to happen. Days, and sometimes weeks, can pass without discernable progress. Then your mind becomes clear, and you remember why you started this journey. You sweep away the detritus, take a deep breath, and begin again.

I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Even though yesterday I wrote 0 words, I won’t let that dissuade me from my goal.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.

  1. I did write yesterday, however, and it’s a massive “whatever”, that was the first time in months, despite intending to do so daily. So, you are doing a great job with your writing commitment. Thank you for the post, I found it very motivating.
