Keep Writing Every Day

Keep Writing Every Day

I hit 1,000 posts in a row. I think I’m going to blow out the numbered bullets, so I’m starting a new page.

For posts 1,001 and on I'm looking for story. This photo is just overflowing with story [Grand Canyon, Arizona]

For posts 1,001 and on I’m looking for story. This photo is just overflowing with story [Grand Canyon, Arizona]

I wonder if I can start bullets with 1,001? I’ll find out. Those are my worries these days. Not whether or not I can write every day, or if I’m a writer or not or I can handle something for 30 days in a row. After writing for 1,000 posts in a row, I feel like I can pretty much do anything.

I do feel like these next 1,000 (or however many I do, it’s less important than it used to be because I know I can do it) will be different. How different? I don’t know. I don’t really care. If I go through the amount of transformation that I went through from 1 to 1,000 as I will from 1,000 to 2,000, I’m ready.

But that’s like asking someone, “Hey, you just achieved your dreams and even some dreams you didn’t know you had. Are you ready to do it again and achieve more dreams you didn’t know you had–and then some?”

Uh, yes, please. Here we go. It’s going to be a wild ride.

Who else is Writing Every Day? Or at least talking about it …

  1000. 2,000 Posts in 2,000 Days (Mar 20)

Wow. 2,000 posts in 2,000 days. Some might say, “Wow, awesome!” or “That’s insane!” or even “Don’t you have anything better to do?”

I would answer, “Yes, it’s awesome, yes, I’m insane (but in a good way), and yes, I have better things to do.

The better thing I have to do is to write a better post tomorrow. Better than the one I wrote today. To make the next book better than the last. To start a new series with new characters, to start a new podcast (oops, did that last week).

To keep on living the dream that I have created for myself and to make it better with each and every single day.

This maybe sounds silly by now, but I need to create a new post where I’ll keep posts 2,001 to 3,000 and it has to have a title. I already have:

  1. Write Every Day
  2. Keep Writing Every Day

Every Single Day, I type into my browser address bar “keep … ” and this page comes up. Then I edit it, yes, manually, and add today’s post and make a link.

If I think about how I feel about writing every day, here are a few words that come to mind:

  • Lucky
  • Thankful
  • Grateful
  • Blessed
  • Fortunate
  • Allowed
  • Priviledged
  • Living my Dream
  • Mexican Fisherman

Although I’m not a big fan of the word “luck” I do like it and believe that luck is created and not so much found on the street corner. If I think about what word I’d like to type into the address bar of my browser bar every day, it’s a fun one. I’m into fun. I’m into light. I’m going with Lucky.

For posts 2,001 to 3,000, head on over to Lucky (to Write) Every Day.
