Alright, Jeff Goins. Here I am, ready for Day One.
Today's challenge is DECLARE.
Declare yourself a writer.
I. Am. A. Writer.
Well, that wasn't too painful. Except that once you say that, once you write that, people say things like, "Oh, what have you published?" or "What do you write?"
To which I respond with an answer that sounds something like, "mmmffffBLOGfmmmmnn."
But one look at this stack of books in my home (and the bigger stack in my classroom), and you'd think I was a professional writer with a full resume.
Nope. I love the craft. My brain is filled with so many great nuggets of writing wisdom, I could write a book of my own. But between motherhood and teaching, my own writing is random and rare at best.
So today is a declaration and a decision. No matter how wack-a-doodle my life gets, I must make a space for writing. I just have to write.
After all, what matters isn't what you do once in a while, it's what you do
What should you STOP doing in order to START doing something important?
