    I won’t own to being a writer, because right now that feels like too much, but I do try to write something everyday. I think that if you set out with the expectation that there must be SOMETHING written before day’s end, the inspiration to write shows up. Sometimes it’s not perfect, sometimes it’s a short poem or barely anything, but it’s fair to say that if my butt is “in the chair” or my mind is in the game, I’ll write something. Good luck!

      I used to do a ton of writing challenges but most of my favorites are defunct :-(. I need to put reminders for Yeah Write and Studio 30+ on my calendar.

    An hour is good, Cheney. Motivated is good. Careful about burnout.

    Writer, me, yes, still bending my definition like Play-Do every day. I have posted here every day now since Oct. 27, 2013 because I want to and because I have made myself to it. Some long, some short, some sister pieces to my other blog duties, but all me every day, finding out where I can go with it, where I like to go with it, what people like to see on it.

      I don’t worry about burnout because I know it won’t last :-/ me and goals don’t work out most of the time.

        Stick with it until you can’t. Simple as that, Cheney. 🙂

    I can’t force myself to draw or paint, but I can force myself to write. I’ve made myself write one sentence, which usually leads to another. Sometimes, it doesn’t and all I can manage is the sentence. Sometimes, that’s enough.

      Yep, I agree. As long as you put the time in, you are golden.

    Sounds like you have been inspired – but then you made a plan! That was the best part for me, I know you can hack it!
