Creatives Are The New Athletes
We, too, need to stay in shape.
Well, that didn’t work out as I thought it would.
It’s September 1, 2021.
On November 1, 2012, I started writing every single day for 30 days. I was taking part in John Muldoon’s Monthly Experiment to see if I could start writing. Because I hadn’t been writing ANY days in a row. I started, I continued, it worked.
I wrote successfully for 30 days. Then I kept going.
Finally, on the day my mom passed away on June 12, 2020, I stopped. 7+ years, 2,808 days in a row of writing.
I figured I was “in shape” enough to the point where I could stop and my life would go on as it had been going on.
Slowly, and unfortunately, surely, things started to silently fall apart.
It’s more than a year later now that I stopped my daily habit of creating.
It’s time to start again.
Because I’ve learned I can’t go without it.
Well, I can.
But it hasn’t gone well.
The other day, after weeks of not meditating, I meditated and a single word came to me: frequency.
It’s the answer to the questions:
- What to do?
- How often to do it?
It’s the title of my next series of books.
