Taking 100 days of no paid work and writing this blog completely transformed my life. I don’t regret a single minute of it. Thank you @FundraiserBeth, for planting the seed in my brain. It grew into the most wonderful tree, and now I can call myself a writer.
I had to go back and read the blog in its entirety. It was remarkable how much better the writing got as the days went on. The majority of the early posts are rambling and unfocused, as you might expect a daily journal to be. The later posts are more insightful and concise. They also have less typos. Here are some of my favorite posts:
- Day 364: The Seven Saints of Self-Discipline
- Day 200: 5 lessons from a part-time writer
- Day 125: In defense of @Disney – At our house, princesses love yoga and disco.
- Day 100: The top ten things I learned in the last 100 days
- Day 82: What I want is the opposite of what I don’t want
- Day 81: Setting my sights on bigger things
- Day 68: The Talent Trap
- Day 11: Scattered, Smothered and Covered
- Day 5: Progress isn’t always linear
I could go on forever with this, but counting days no longer makes sense. And frankly, because I don’t write everyday, the math is a drag. This particular project had a very clear beginning and now it needs an end.
So, I would like to invite you all to join me my new blog Harmonious Mess. It’s a clearing house for all my great ideas and good advice. I hope you will find it just as enjoyable as this was. Thank you for your support.
