Today is technically my day off, so this has been written ahead of time.

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

Most likely, I did Day 49 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through LA Writer’s Lab – and not a lot more as far as writing words.  

What Am I Afraid of Doing Next in My Journey as a Writer?

Usually on Sundays, I’ve spent the week tired, and then when it’s time to rest, I get kind of restless.

Stuff I find myself saying:  I need a nap.

How Am I Balancing the Different Aspects of Being a Writer?

By taking a day off.

In January I started doing daily posts, hoping that if I focused on these nine aspects, I’d get some traction toward being a writer. I can see progress; but I’m not sure that my questions are the best. If you haven’t been following along, here they are:

  • What I’m Doing About Building a Body of Work as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing to Complete My Manuscripts as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing to Grow My Website as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing to Build My Blog as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing About Networking as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing About Monetization as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing About Social Media as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing About Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a Writer
  • What I’m Doing to Stay Organized as a Writer

Looking Back at My Writing Journey

I feel like in a lot of ways I’ve fallen short of my expectations for myself; but some of the things I’ve accomplished have been a lot more complicated than I imagined they would be, so I’m trying to take heart and keep pressing ahead.

Any Other Thoughts on Becoming a Writer, Random Rants, Tales, or Trials…

The sun’s setting, so I think I’ll get outside and see the sky turn red.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

Here are some thoughts on writing everyday:


I'm not sure what to say here: I once got second place in a dog-look-alike-contest? I know how to fold a fitted sheet? I'm pretty much a poster child for social backwardness - at least as far as social media is concerned; but I have some stories I think I'm supposed to share and am attempting to do that here, in this space.
