Writing Update 5/18/15

Time for Round 2
This round, my goal is to start a daily writing practice.  I am starting by completing Blogging University's Writing 101 through The Daily Post.  I will be posting on my blog daily using the prompt and twist provided.  I will also be continuing to work on my reading goal of 30 books this year.

This week I tried morning pages.  It didn't go so well.  I discovered very quickly that I get up too early for my brain to function properly which means that the writing I produce is not very high quality.

I blogged Monday through Thursday this week.  I wrote in the morning on Monday and Tuesday, each time eventually thwarted by this cuteness:
Wednesday and Thursday I wrote in the afternoon/evening, one day during some free moments at work and the second day after work.  The weekends still remain the most difficult time for me to devote time to writing.  I continue to progress through the Writing 101 prompts, and my reading goal is going really well.  Overall I am happy with my progress this round, although I know that there is room for improvement.  


  1. My best writing time is first thing in the morning, but that's not the case for everyone. If you write better later in the day, then that's the time you should try to set aside for it(if you can). Good luck.

    1. Thank you. It was a good experience to try writing in the morning but afternoons are definitely better for me.
