"You should keep writing every day," she said casually, as if she was noting I should take a shower every day because it was good for others!
"It's a lot of pressure," I volunteered, "every year I wonder if I can possibly add this to my list and consider not dong the SOL. Then, every year I marvel when I do it. . It is a reminder that the more you write the easier it is to write."
At the finish line of this year's marathon, I am thinking about all the routines of life, commuting, cleaning, cooking, laundry, exercising and eating healthy. All of them are easier when you just do them every day and keep your momentum going.
Yet, that is the challenge, to keep your eye and mind focused on what is important. To keep yourself from the distractions of reality TV, the last chapter, and a gooey snack.
It's a challenge every year, but I plan to return on Tuesdays while I wait for next March.
