10K Writing Challenge
I guess the picture says it all, doesn't it? Is there really a need for me to even write this blog post?
I came across the 10K writing challenge about a week ago from YouTuber Mandi Lynn and thought to myself, pre-kids, I could have easily succeeded at something like this, but there is no way I could do it now. So, naturally, I've decided to give it a shot and see how close I can get. If I get to 10K, not only can I get a sticker that commemorates that fact but I will be rewarding myself with a colour-changing lamp that I have been looking at. While my kids aren't exactly at an age that they can fend for themselves, 2 of them can entertain themselves quite well and my baby girl naps twice a day. I will be balancing motherhood with this challenge and it's not going to be an easy feat, but that's what challenges are, right?
I am hopeful that this will be the kick start I need to get deep into work on my latest project, The Magician's Secret. I have been struggling to start the project simply because I have so many balls in the air at the moment and my focus has been lacking. For this challenge, I have given myself permission to focus on no other tasks but keeping my kids alive and writing. That's it.
Wish me luck. I will be updating Instagram and Facebook as the day goes on if you are interested in keeping track of my progress.
