What Did I Accomplish Today to Be a Writer?

I wrote that sentence up above – and used an exclamation point – even though I thought it was a little much. That’s a huge growth spurt in my comfort level when it comes to self-expression.

(I’m consoling my typically reticent self that I suppose it could be taken as sarcasm – which is my particular form of self-protection.

But then again, I’m trying not to be so sarcastic…)

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

I also dismantled the inner-workings of my freezer to protect myself from food poisoning, since when I reached in the fridge this morning, I was greeted by a warm carton of cream.

I just ate some highly questionable salmon for supper. It tasted good; but my stomach may start churning like the North Atlantic…

I’ll let you know if my night turns into something worth describing in a Herman Mehlville book.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

Jody Susan

P.S. I’m continuing to look back at where I was 99 days ago to see if I’ve made progress. My assessment is that I’ve settled down some, gained a little confidence, and slashed my word count. That seems like three wins for the discipline of writing every day. Take a look at the post below to see a side by side comparison:

How ironic that this post 99 days prior to today includes my confession regarding exclamation points!!!


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.
