"Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers."
I have been a writer most of my life. Three years ago I decided to take on a challenge called Write Chain. The premise of which is to develop a daily writing habit. The participants were meant to think of each day as a chain in their writing journey. I wrote about my journey in December of 2013 when I had reached 100 days of straight writing. I am amazed, excited and humbled that I have been writing every single day for three years now.
I will continue with my daily writing. It has become essential to me. I need to write every day almost as much as I need to breathe. I am so thankful that I found that challenge and decided to take it on. My writing has improved in ways I didn't even know it could improve. I've had a couple of short stories published and interest in my novels. I am currently finishing up a novel that I pitched the idea about to one of the well-known publishers. They liked my idea and said write the book so that is what I have been doing. I will finish writing it within the next two weeks. Then I will spend the rest of September and all of October revising said novel. I will submit it by the end of October and cross my fingers hoping for the best.
As of today, I am beginning year four of my daily writing. I'm excited to see where this year takes me on my writing journey.
