My Journey to Become a Writer 04/03/2024 Post #94

If I’m honest (which I want to be), right now, I’m writing this post just to get it done.

Some days with writing are like that, where I just do it out of discipline, and that’s okay.

It’s like putting in reps at the gym for an athlete, or practicing scales on the piano for a musician.

The habit of discipline leads to the freedom of motion.

I know practicing this craft on a daily basis has made my words come more fluidly.

So, I keep filling up journals, computer files and web pages.

What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

I did Day 94 of the 100 Words a Day Writing Challenge 2024 through L.A. Writer’s Lab and participated in a class led by Mary-Beth Manning.

I also worked on QuickBooks, which has a little something to do with why I’m not motivated to write right now – I’m plumb worn out.

I guess could tell about listening to “Atomic Habits” and how he used Steve Martin’s determination in show business to be a success; but I’m too tired.

At least I did it. I made it to Day 94, which is a daily goal I’m going for.

I wrote my words. That’s a win in my book.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

Jody Susan

Here’s a piece I put out a while back about the little daily disciplines that can make a big difference:

Little by little, inch by inch – by the yard it’s hard, by the inch – what a cinch! – Author Unknown


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.
