grace (not writing)

I miss a lot of things about my blogging space.

I miss the exchanges with you after posting something. It’s more about interacting as friends, fellow writers and readers than the external validation element.

I miss spending time reading your blogs and knowing what you are all up to.

I miss writing and blogging challenges that get my creative juices flowing.

Giving myself grace is the only way to go but I truly miss the act of sitting down and seeing what I can create.

After long days stuck at the computer and working from home all the time, the last thing I want is to spend more time with a device.

But like I miss writing too much to give up.

A J gave me an idea in a recent post and my light bulb went off – I’m going to find a 30 day writing challenge to “just write”. Maybe I’ll post them or maybe not. We’ll see.

The race is not for the swift but for those who can endure to the end.

If you are a writer, would you have any 30 day challenges to suggest?

    Hi. I thought your 30 day challenge sounded very interesting. perhaps you can write about 30 people you’ve met in your life. Just a random thought I got whilst reading your post.

    1. That’s a great idea. Unfortunately, I’d be afraid of them catching their resemblance in one of my posts so….I’ve got 2 other options to think about…😄

        argh! can’t you make it semi- fiction? I do that. 😉 Then they won’t know at all. and will be utterly confused.
        but you would know best. I really look forward to your posts on this. Always enjoyed your posts.

            That’s alright . family is always a good place to start 🙂 (you didnt come across as an introvert to me) you could also write on places you have been or food and beverages you’ve tried out or you can even interview 30 people and get their permission to write and post about them. just my tiny brain thinking so. 🙂

    1. I do/did. Somehow I haven’t been getting her notifications so I signed up again. I remember her challenge! Now, I have 2 options to choose from. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. I just finished a 30 day challenge that Pam did a while back. It did me good and I now feel like writing again. Mind you, I switched up a number of questions but the end result was still great!
