30 Day Writing Challenge - Day 1

I want to write. I need to write. I must write.

It's been 3 years since I have finished undergrad. Since joining the real world I've yet to be asked to write an essay on my thoughts on a particular subject. Most of the writing I do now is for work and it is usually emails or documentation.

I think after college a lot of us will lose much of the writing ability we developed since kindergarden. I have certainly noticed this in my writing. As the saying goes, "use it or lost it" - thus the only way to maintain our writing skills is to write.

Starting today, I am taking on a 30 day blogging challenge. Today is day 1 in this challenge. My goal is to not worry about what I write or for who but rather to get into the flow of constantly penning down my down thoughts.

I'm not sure what my biggest challenge will be in this adventure. Will I not have the discipline to write everyday? Will not have genuine thoughts to express? Or will I just get tired of the challenge and leave it out of boredom? These questions can be bettered answered 15 days from now.

  1. Admiring your conviction to need and must write. Writing on a consistent basis requires perseverance and not to mention, a lot of alone time. If you're up for that, then by all sane means, go on your 30-day writing challenge. - Layce, one of the many experienced Australian writers.
