ROW 80 – Week 1 Update

Well, I am posting this update a day late, but I am happy to say that I met my goals for the first week of the challenge!  I got up early every morning last week and wrote for at least 30 minutes.  A couple of mornings I wrote for 40 minutes.  Some of my writing was journaling and some of it was on story ideas.  A bit of it was on some thoughts I had on books I was reading. It felt good to be creative first thing in the morning; I think it helped me to feel more settled during the remainder of the day.  A welcome side effect.  🙂

I think that week 2 is going to be harder than week 1.  I feel like I accomplished a goal and my psyche is now expecting some rest.  I have to keep reminding myself that I am only 8 days into an 80 day commitment, and while getting through the first week was a good accomplishment, I have several more laps to run before completing this race.

Besides my writing, I read and wrote reviews for two books this week:

Of the two, Becoming a Writer was definitely my favorite.  Such a lovely little book.

Thanks to all who have been reading and posting encouraging comments.  I feel so supported!
