It’s Sunday morning and I’m recovering from another sleep deprived night. Intermittent periods of waking throughout the evening are easily visible underneath my eyes. Random thoughts are the cause because let’s face it — 2:00 a.m. is when inspiration nudges me awake. Such was the case this past week.
I began feeling discouraged by my lack of progress. My heart desires to read more and write even more. Nonetheless, priorities of daily life supercede and require my attention. In the midst of getting upset at myself I found myself awake one night. I decided to present myself with a challenge.
For the next seven days, I’m committing myself to read and write more. I’m calling this the “Chapter 4 Chapter Challenge” because of its simplicity — challenge yourself to read a chapter and write a chapter daily. To be a good writer, one must be reading and studying the craft. To be a great writer, one must practice the craft daily.
To my fellow writers, I urge you to join me this week for the challenge. If you’re not a writer, I suggest joining me by journaling and reading every day. You’re missing out on the value of both if you’re not already doing so but that’s more for a blog another day. 🙂
Comment below and tell me about what you’re reading and writing!
Until next post,
