Day seventy-four of my 365 Day Writing Project.
On Twitter today @DIYauthor posted the following tweet:
What problem with writing was your greatest roadblock, and how did you overcome it?
Undoubtedly, I have experienced many roadblocks to writing and writing well. But the greatest? That’s a no-brainer. The number one roadblock for me has always been finding time to write. At least that was the case until 74 days ago. Hence, the overcoming part.
I replied that My 365 Day Writing Project was how I overcame that roadblock. The simple act of replying to that tweet was yet another affirmation of this journey I am on. That what I am doing is not only working, it is casting forth benefits and personal victories I never imagined. Writing every day has produced rewards within rewards, delivered in perpetuity like little treasures inside Matryoshka dolls.
Is finding time to write still a challenge for me? Yes. And it will probably continue to be a challenge for me until I can quit my day job. At least now I know how to overcome it if it blocks my road to successful writing again. Because of this project, I’m doing it. I’m finding time to write every day.
