My Journey to Become a Writer 02/28/2024 Post #59

It’s 10:25 p.m., and I was up well before five this morning, sorting through scheduling issues, trying to squish too many tasks into upcoming days.

That being said, I’ll keep tonight’s post (which I’d determined to write before dinner; but didn’t) short.

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

I did Day 59 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through LA Writer’s Lab.  

I made an effort to stick to my guns on scheduling; but then spent some time mourning over how I don’t have much of a backbone when it comes to setting boundaries.

If I see a need, I want to fill it, maybe that’s why I feel like I need to flee from interactions, if I’m ever going to accomplish the things on my “list”.

Not much writing happened today, and due to a poor internet connection, I skipped my class, and wound up taking a much needed nap instead. Hopefully, I can see the recording soon. This discouraged me for a while, and I gave myself a good, stern lecture about time management and protecting priorities, etc… but when I look back at the entire day, and the amount of time that was spent sharing and listening to stories, I can see that it wasn’t at all a loss, as far as my journey to be a writer is concerned.

Some days are spent soaking stories in, and other days are spent wringing them out through writing.

That’s the way the world works, and I need to rest in that truth.

I also need to rest in my bed.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

I’ve thought a lot about “taking care of caregivers” today, and here’s my take:

Some say life is just a bowl of cherries; but I say, sometimes it’s a chair of bowlies.


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.
