I am trying my best to write daily now. I am no longer counting emails and work documents as writing, either. I didn’t realize how much I substituted business writing for actual writing… until I stopped counting. I am not truly fulfilled because my heart is not in it. My soul is not there. I want more for myself. I am now actively working to hone my craft with a renewed desire. I started acting and setting goals.
Goal #1: meet new writers. CHECK – I joined 3 new writer groups on Facebook this week.
Goal #2: publish something longer than a poem. I’m up to 3K in a story, need about another 9K for a possible anthology entry.
Goal #3: Keep this journal going on a weekly basis, for at least two months.
Such a short list, such achievable goals. I will accomplish them.
(and I’ll keep telling myself this every day until they are all achieved)
