I’ve been somewhat silent on the blog as of late, but I’ve been really working hard in many areas and am excited for the next few posts I have planned. I’m still pursuing my Renaissance, and am actually progressing in some new areas. For now, I’m writing to share that I’m 12 weeks strong into the #WritingWednesday practice I’ve developed, and learning a ton about myself.
I’ll post links to the pieces under here starting with the most recent:
Today was a great challenge and opportunity to write. I didn’t know what to write about, so I used one of my other renaissance pursuits (Photography) to get the juices going. I walked through my neighborhood and took some shots of the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. One shot captivated me when I was reviewing them–the shot showed life and death in one image. A beautiful African Violet blooming, but a dead flower interspersed throughout the blossoms. Got me thinking deeply on life and death. Here’s what I wrote:
I got it done again. Just 3 in a row, but that’s the start of a streak to me. I aim to keep this consistent and it’s helping me having this deadline. It’s only self-imposed too, so this is really an exercise in self-mastery. I chose to be here doing this today…no gun to my head. Knocked out 1250 words in under an hour. Check it out:
Well, a week’s gone by and rather than what could have happened (failure) I made it. I got another 1000 word piece done over on Medium for #WritingWednesday I’m linking to it below. Also have a new video I’m editing right now but you can also check out My First Day On Snapchat (and follow Multitude 277 for the real moments of this journey as they happen)
It may sometimes be here on this blog, but more likely than anything is I’ll do the majority of my Writing Wednedays over on medium. Here’s the first of what I want to be a new habit that deepens my writing practice and brings consistency to my creative weeks.
Was able to churn out over 1k words in 28 minutes, not bad. Let me know what you thought in the comments below, or write me a response on Medium.
