Showing up

It’s been 13 days and posts since I started this project.

It’s ups and downs, days where it’s fun and breezy, others I was struggling to produce a complete good enough sharable idea. While my immunity against perfection is improving, or so I do feel, I’m starting to get a better sense of how much work I still have to do in order to get better at this game.

Up until now, most of what I’ve been sharing here is from random themes, mainly inspirations and quotes from books, blogs, and podcasts I consume during the day—then appending my opinion to it. While this a strategy to get me by when I’m out of “original” ideas; I still want to get those writing muscles back to work if I ever want to have this craft of writing as a handy tool.

Reminding my self that I have chosen to sharpen this skill, being a writer, to thinking clearly and articulate my thinking in words. For this to happen, I need to keep showing up every day. Good writing day, bad writing day, it doesn’t matter by now, as long as I keep showing up.

I was promised, that the reward shall show itself to those who show up everyday! #
