Writing, A Missed Day

I missed a day of posting about writing yesterday, maybe you missed a day of writing. We both had reasons, things happen, but that doesn’t mean you can’t complete your project. Don’t allow one day of necessary things break your streak.

It was one day, write today. Before you know it, you’ll be finished with this part of the project. Then you can move on to phase two, and a setback will be forgotten. The act of writing can become a routine, and routines get interrupted, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be reignited.

Maybe you needed a break, or maybe something far more important than writing happened yesterday, it’s ok. I would like to share with you three things to do the next day, after a missed day of writing.

First reread the last part you wrote. It will refresh your memory, and remind you where to go next. If you’re near the end of your project, this is vital, in tiring up loose ends.

Second, now that you’re writing again, don’t focus on the day you missed. Focus on what you’re writing. The past is behind you, and you’re now can build a better next day.

Third, plan for ways to build in time, for those days when obstacles happen. They can’t always be avoided, but some interruptions can be. It will also give you the peace of mind in knowing you have a game plan.

There will be days when we miss doing something, like writing. However it’s one day, and today is a new day. Focus on what’s next, we’ve got some writing to do.
