It's the last day of the month which means it's time to look back on this month's challenge! Don't know what I'm talking about? Check out this post where I announce that every month this year I'm going to be attempting a different writing challenge! In January the challenge was simple: write in my journal every day.
.... I kind of failed. I didn't do it every day. I did write some, but not every single day. This is really productive information! I've never been good at keeping a journal and this to me is the final evidence that it just isn't my thing so I'm going to let it gooooooo. No longer will I feel like a failure if I don't write in a journal faithfully. I've been trying it on and off for over a decade and it NEVER WORKS. In this post I do discuss how carrying a mini journal around with me IS something I find very useful so I'm going to accept my fate, play to my strengths, and do what works for me. In the future if I decided to try writing every day again I need to pick a specific time. I found that often it would be late at night and I'd remember that I needed to write and I'd end up scribbling something useless... as you can see in this photo:
February Challenge: Because it's the month of Valentine's I thought it would be nice to do something themed: let's write poems! Valentine's day is on the 14th, so I've decided to write 14 poems this month.. a lot more than usual. To go with our theme I'm aiming to write some love poems but I also want to feel free to write anything that comes to me! Let's see how it goes!
