Writing Roller Coaster

The journey of being committed to writing daily for the entire month of March has definitely been like a roller coaster for me. 

There were days that the words flowed easily and my fingers struggled to keep up with the thoughts that danced around in my head.

Then there were days that I honestly did not want to write anything at all. I wanted to quit, but knew I had made a commitment to myself and nothing was going to stop me.

Other days, I knew what I wanted to write about, but I struggled to make sense of all the broken pieces of information.

Then there were the days that my heart seemed to take control and guided my thoughts with a wide range of emotions.

Today, I realized I’m not sure I’m ready to depart from this writing roller coaster. Part of me is sad that my writing commitment has been fulfilled. The other part of me is sighing with relief!

I wonder if I will choose to continue to write without the commitment...

  2. Stay. on. the. ride!!! I set a goal last June to write something every day for a year, just to see what would happen. Being a daily columnist is HARD work! But it's also become HEART work because I find myself looking for good things to say and share . . . and I do believe I'm in a better place today than I was last year at this time emotionally, spiritually, and mentally . . . physically may have suffered slightly, but I still manage to fit fitness in as well.

    You're a talented writer and I've enjoyed your SLICES!

  4. It's a relief to have completed the challenge, but yet there is sadness it is over. I know exactly what you mean about some days the writing is easy, but some days it was a struggle. Congratulations on staying with it and come back on Tuesdays.

  5. It's been really fun getting to know you through your daily slice of life posts. I don't think I've have the ability to do it!!!
