SOLSC Day 31
The challenge is over. We made it! When the call to sign up for the challenge came I did not hesitate. I signed up with no second thoughts. It was only afterwards that doubt crept in. Why did I do it? What do I possibly have to write about for 31 straight days? Will anyone bother to read what I write?
Well, why did I do it? It is a challenge and I like challenges. They are a way of helping me grow. Because I am retired I don’t write the way I once did. Use it or lose it. I don’t want to lose my writing skill. I also wanted to try some things I haven’t tried before and I know this is a safe and nurturing place to to that.
What do I possibly have to write about for 31 straight days. This is something I have asked myself the previous 4 times I took on this challenge. Many people plan their month in advance. I don’t. Many people make a list of possible topics. I don’t. I just hope for inspiration each day. One thing I did do differently this year, though, was to write a draft the night before I posted it. I didn’t feel so pressured this way.
Will anyone bother to read what I write? This I have no control over. I am always grateful for those who read my posts and then leave comments. They encourage me to try new things and to keep writing. I am happy that I can sometimes bring a smile to those who read my blog or share some information someone may not have known.
Will I be here next March? God willing, yes. I will probably still have the same reservations and doubts but that won’t stop me.
What will I do until then? I will be here every Tuesday (except for the weeks we will be away) sharing whatever is happening in my life. Hope to see many of you here each Tuesday as well.
Thanks to everyone at TWT for hosting this challenge. Thanks to all who took the time to read and comment on my posts. You are the best.
