Hi!

I’m writing this at 4:55pm (Eastern) on January 2nd. I don’t know if it’s my internet (which can be impacted by the weather), a website caching issue, or something with the event calendar setup… but the only way I can see the two writing events I entered for today is when I’m actually editing this page.

If you’re reading this and you can see two events for January 2nd, mind hopping over to today’s Writing Challenge post and dropping a comment to let me know?

If the event calendar option proves unworkable, I’ll just make a daily blog post chronicling the progress toward my writing challenge for the year. Since I’ve sent the link to this page to my newsletter, I’ll put a post slider below that only displays Writing Challenge posts.

Hope the days treat you and yours well!

29 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 45

Hello, and good evening. I hope the days have been treating you well. And yes... I am horribly behind on my updates again, but unlike every other batch of updates, I wanted to write today's post first. I have already created the others as drafts, and I'll circle back...

25 – 28 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Days 41 – 44

To make a long story short, I didn't write anything these four days. I spent Friday (the 25th) and Saturday (the 26th) getting ready for the drive to Ohio to attend my aunt's visitation and funeral. She was one of Dad's sisters and one of my favorite aunts. I have...

24 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 40

Novemebr 24th was Thanksgiving in the United States. We have a huge amount of traditions and "history" and truth that isn't always related to "history" (even by implication) surrounding that holiday. Those who know me personally will not be surprised at all when I say...

23 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 39

I have no idea how I spent most of the day before Thanksgiving. I do know I made a small grocery run, where I bought a pack of Brown 'n Serve rolls (see the post for Thanksgiving Day). But regardless of what I did... I didn't write a single word.

22 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 38

Last Tuesday (the 22nd), I visited my poet/professor friend to help him with some computer issues. It was a wonderful day, and I thoroughly enjoyed the chats during the work and while waiting on the technology to do what we told it to do. I was thoroughly wiped when I...

21 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 37

Monday the 21st was not nearly as good of a day of writing as Sunday the 20th, and at this point, I don't remember why. Yes, I know. I need to do a better job of keeping up-to-date on these posts. I've already decided that as soon as my Q4 Challenge is over, I'm going...

20 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 36

Well... Day 36 of my Q4 Challenge has officially come to a close. At least in terms of production. And I met my target. Exceeded it, in fact, but only by about sixty words or so. And the best part is that I'm okay with that. All of the thinking and evaluation and...

Q4 Challenge Thoughts

Today (20 November 2022) is the first day of the sixth week of my Q4 Challenge. Which means that I'm thirty-five (35) days into it. Out of those thirty-five days, I've had nine (9) days where I wrote zero (0) words. Four (4) days, I've wrote less than 1,000 words. So...

19 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 35

If you've noticed the post date versus the post title, you'll see that--once again--I'm behind. At least it's only a day behind, this time. 😁 I spent the afternoon with a good friend, and it was an awesome afternoon. I'm going to be helping him with some tech work...

18 November 2022 — Q4 Challenge: Day 34

Hello, everyone! I hope the days have been treating you well. The past few days, I've been slipping a little bit on the 'people' side of these posts, and while I may not always say so, I do hope the days treat you as well as possible. Yes... I have--in the...
