The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – August 31

2021 Daily Writing Challenge Q2

Yesterday was awful. Added to the typical Monday misery of the 9 to 5, my muscles screamed at me after helping a friend move on Sunday. You can’t imagine what an enormous relief it was to log out, lay down, and rest. I planned to start working on the next module for my online course, but the sentences kept fading away, and they made little sense. I couldn’t concentrate on anything beyond how sore I was. My aching muscles needed time to recover. Enter my extended nap.

When I woke, I felt a little better, but the sluggish mind fog remained. I looked at my To-Do list and selected only the tasks I felt capable of completing. I cleaned out the refrigerator, sorted through a couple of boxes, vacuumed the floors, took a hot shower, updated my Master List of Things-To-Do, and started reading a new book. The book was short, making it a fast read, and I finished it a little after my usual bedtime. It wasn’t the most stellar kind of day, but I salvaged what I could and kept it from being a total disappointment.

I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 150 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
