Day 21

The first half of this challenge is in the bag. I have managed to write and post something here for 20 days straight, and now 21. This has been a stimulating, exciting and difficult adventure. I have tried to maintain quality with quantity, but fallen short at times. Despite that, I’m still writing. I’m still practicing. I’m finding the more I write, the more I want to write, and I’m actually loving this challenge, though physically suffering a bit due to lack of sleep. I managed a poem on that topic. My brain does not want to turn off as it works things out or churns ideas. The night before last I had to force myself to stay in bed at 1:45am because I wanted to get up and write. A friend had given me the idea to write about music, but I wasn’t sure which direction I wanted to go with it until it hit me in the wee hours of the morning. I’m also finding myself in a half asleep/half awake state at times, and in my delirium writing things down in a notebook that sound like a good idea, but when I read what I scribbled in the morning, I just laugh at myself.

Wow, what an exercise this is. It is making me realize a few things about myself. Mostly, how much I really do love to write, but I’m feeling a little exposed. I know I don’t have to post what I write, but isn’t that the idea? To have readers?

I will carry on for the next 19 days, and then what?

Here are a few photos I shot to calm my spirit during this mindful undertaking.
