An Objective Look At My Year thus Far

This year had a rocky beginning. It didn’t feel like it at the time, but now looking back at my year so far, I can now see I had somewhat of a challenging start. Coming off the high from a year abroad was rough. I was supposed to be visiting my parents for a couple…

I’m Getting the Break I Needed- Here’s What Might Come Next

  It’s been some time since I’ve posted publicly to my Medium account and it’s the “break” I needed from the daily challenge. There’s less pressure to perform and my only concern is getting my daily post out here on my blog. Now I’m just doing this for myself. I need to finish the challenge.…

I’m Fresh Out of Stories but I Actually Have a Lot More

  I feel like I’ve written about everything I could have possibly written about. The story well has run dry. …At least the well of stories from which I am comfortable telling. There are probably years worth of stories about relationships and other matters which I’ve kept to myself. Maybe when I’m old and grey,…

So Here’s the Deal, I Can’t Quit 🙄

The day after I “quit” the daily writing challenge, I was sitting on the couch with a Star Wars movie playing in the background. I had just finished 5 hours of work but I felt like a loser. Part of me wanted to just go to sleep but the other part was like, “No. You…

The End is Just a New Beginning: Tapping Out on Day 225

Tonight, I was going to write about the “Monsanto makes us sick” stickers that were stuck on all the cart corrals at my local grocery store, but errr, I’ve suddenly had a change of plans… I’m going to make an announcement instead: I’m done writing daily.  That’s what I really want to talk about. I’ve…

I Started Counting Down to Day 365

365 minus 224 equals ….pretty many days left. I remember when I was eager to finish college and every semester I would pull out my list of required courses and count them. “Okay, 12 more courses, that means 3 more semesters of 4 courses.” I always tried to make it seem more manageable. Recently, I’ve…

Too Much Structure Almost Made Me Miss the Journey

Today, the oldest and I skipped our usual track workout and decided to ride bikes instead.  As we rode past barking dogs, and houses, and people walking, I realized how much I enjoyed the change of scene. A couple of weeks ago when I had lost my motivation to write, I wasn’t sure why. There was…

My Writing Plans Flew Out the Window Today

I woke up early this AM to make the drive to get my sis who flew in from the Atlanta. And once we arrived to our parent’s home, my brother arrived a couple hours later. He is on a break from summer courses at college. Although we all keep in communication, it’s been a year since…

When Things Die as You Know Them, Be Ready for the Change

207 days of writing. Whew. This is the longest I’ve kept up with a  daily routine other than the obvious eating, showering, sleeping…you know general upkeep. A few days ago, maybe a couple of weeks ago… I got sick of daily writing and it started to drive me nuts. My attitude changed and my posts went…

Feeling Bored? You Might Want to Shake Things Up

Ever since I pulled back from my writing a bit and decided to focus on some other projects, I’ve felt relieved. I’ve had writer’s block maybe once or twice during this challenge, but I never felt burnt out or disinterested in writing until a little after I crossed the halfway mark. Perhaps it was the new…
