30 Writes

30 Writes In 30 Days

A couple of days ago I woke up in the early hours hearing a voice that said simply “write”.  At the same time I saw a picture of the word “WRITE” in capital letters with a full-stop. Pretty weird but none the less intriguing.

There are a couple of things I’ve been thinking about writing recently – more posts on this blog and a long overdue update to my ebook ‘7 Steps To A Depression Free Life‘. Today is the 1st of October and a Monday so it seems an auspicious  time to listen to a disembodied voice and start a writing project. Cue the spooky music.

I like the sound of ’30 “writes” in 30 days’ but then I always like the sound of numbers and a fixed timeline for a project.  However, I don’t think I’ve ever completed one that I set up that way. The idea of a “project” feels too constraining for me these days so this is the beginning of an exploration entitled ’30 “writes” in 30 days’.

I have no preconceived ideas of what the “writes” will be but I will endeavour to report something each day this month.

If you’d like to join me (and I’d LOVE it if you would) please leave a comment. Do that today and it could count as your first “write”. Then comment on my future posts and add what you’ve written that day or post a link if you’ve added your “write” to a website.

I’ve no idea where this is going but it’s always more fun to be sharing the journey . . .

    Great idea Gillian and I’m going to join you!

    Well almost. I’m going to commit to writing each weekday.

    I’ve felt a “calling” recently to going back to doing much more writing and more specifically sharing ideas and knowledge.

    I’ve got 2 ideas about what to write today. One is easy so going to start with that. The other is going to be more of a challenge, so let’s see what happens.

      Brilliant! So great to have company. I have an idea bubbling up too which feels a bit of a challenge. I’ll maybe tackle it after lunch . . .
