Write every day for a month. Simple stuff right? Well, it’s Day 2 of the month and I almost forgot. Geez, where is my discipline? Or is it lack of desire? Or maybe I’m just exhausted from my day job. Yes, that’s it, ding, ding, ding, ding!
But what counts is that I did remember and I’m writing. Yes, I am. I was ready to get in my comfy bed and give warm and cozy. Instead, I’m in my soft chair with a blanket and my laptop. Almost as good from a comfort point of view. Better yet, I’m making progress told my goal of being a published author. I can also share with my students that I’m writing and persevering. If I can do it, I know they can.
I know this slice isn’t going to get me a book deal, but it is going to help me establish a routine. And maybe just a little bit of respect for discipline.
