I began the month with doubts. Not knowing whether I should attempt #Write31Days or not. I wasn’t sure if I would have the time or enough ideas, and I didn’t want to start the month and not complete it like I have the past couple of years.
And here we are on October 31st and I did it.
I am not saying it was easy or that I always had something awe-inspiring to write about, but I did write something every day. And I didn’t have to resort to giving you a weather report every day!
Here’s what I learned this month:
1-In order to write, I have to actually write. I can’t keep wishing and hoping that I will be a writer without actually doing the hard work. The more I write, the more my creative juices flow.
2-I have time to write. I don’t have a lot of time, and sometimes I am tired and don’t feel like writing, but I do have a little time in my schedule (mostly at night after the kids go to bed) to write. I have to make an effort to spend that time writing instead of zoning out on Facebook or Pinterest.
3-There are plenty of things for me to write about. This month, since I was really searching for things to write about, I constantly thought throughout the day, “I should write about that.” “I hope I remember to write about this.” God is always at work around me, and that’s what I want people to know and understand about their own lives. I am confident that if I ever have nothing to write about, He will give me something!
So I am going to continue to write every day. I’m not going to post everything on the blog, but I am going to finish up my New Year’s goal of submitting 6 articles for publication (I have only submitted one). I think that’s realistic and will keep me focused and working.
I hope you enjoyed reading along this month. I so appreciate those of you who faithfully read and give me encouragement!
