40 Days of Writing

Posted on

This year for Lent, instead of giving something up I decided that I would make sure to spend some of every day writing. Whether it’s writing here in this blog that I’ve been sorely neglecting (despite my New Year’s resolution to post once a week, which obviously I’ve failed at already and it’s only March), working on a story/novel (I have a new idea that I really like), journaling or even just scribbling thoughts or outlines for stories onto paper. (I promise I won’t actually blog everyday, because you may be shocked to hear this, but my life really isn’t all that exciting and I don’t want to bore you all to death. I have very few readers as is, I really don’t want to scare any of them off.) Whether it means typing at a computer or literally putting pen to paper, I will spend at least some time every day for the next 40 days writing. And hopefully at the end of those 40 days I will have created a habit. (One that will perhaps lead to me actually finishing a novel someday, yay!)

For years it’s been my dream to be a writer, and occasionally I’ll manage to actually write paragraphs, or even whole chapters of different books that I think up, but never actually complete anything. Lately I’ve been giving it a lot of thought and decided that it’s time to stop putting it off. If I want to be a writer, I need to actually start WRITING. So here I am, publicly making a promise to myself to actually take the time every day to work on something that may ultimately help make one of my dreams come true.

    Charissa , I have always believed you could. and would, one day write. You have always had wonderful insight and a unique way of seeing things, I think once you get serious about writing you will amaze yourself!
