Writing everyday for 365 days is taxing.
Emotionally (dealing with insecurities), intellectually (doubting rationales, statements, learning facts, and thinking critically), and physically (yes, typing non-stop and editing for a few hours is hard on the hands and wrists and eye strain from the laptop).
The experience has been both challenging and engaging. Challenging in that there’s ALWAYS something to write about but harnessing all of these nebulous thoughts swirling around in my brain on a daily basis can also be detrimental to the writing process. Of course, there are many days I’ve posted a photo, a link, a quote, or an excerpt of text but the WordPress postaday challenge is about being conscious of one’s writing practice.
In other words, I’m glad I took on the challenge and looking forward to the rest year…
