So this is it… August first, and the beginning of my year long writing journey. This isn’t something I planned at all either. I literally thought of it yesterday when I was going through my planner, and it popped into my brain and nagged at me all day till I did what it wanted: made a commitment.
To make it even more interesting, I started a new Instagram account [mjwrites365] and would love it if you wanted to follow. I will also be posting daily on there as well to keep myself accountable.
I’m smiling as I write this because it feels like the first big step I’ve taken in a long time. I’ve been pretty MIA in the writing department for so long, years if I’m being honest, and just want to prove to myself that I can do this. No more excuses (I have millions). No more wishing. No more complaining. Just write.
Also, it has that ‘project’ feel about it, and I’ve always been happiest when I have a project. I love working towards something, and spending my time when I’m not writing thinking about what I’m going to write about. All writing will be written in one file on Scrivener and then exported to it’s home, whether it be the fiction piece I’m working on or this blog.
Journaling doesn’t count.
I figure this way, next July, I can print the whole thing and really see what a goal looks like completed.
What about you? We are over halfway through 2016… how are your goals coming along? It’s not too late to create some new ones and get back on track.
It’s never too late to turn your life around.
Hope you have a great Monday!
