I would like to start off today with a great big thank you to all my readers. Yesterday, I uploaded a very personal piece that I hoped would grab a few eyes. I had no idea. Within 15 minutes of posting the writing, it had 200 views. I don’t know if my writing has gotten better or if I’m just becoming more honest in my writing (or both). But it doesn’t matter. Thank you for all your support.
Today I am starting what I hope will be a new routine. The coffee shop I write at is 2.5 miles from my house. It is the perfect distance to walk. Today I made the trek and feel great. It is the perfect way to get my mind going so I am prepared to write when I arrive. It is also perfect practice for the Peace Corps–which is less than 150 days away now. I hope this new routine will improve my writing, help me add some muscle, and shave off the final 30 pounds I need to lose. Only time will tell.
P.S.–For any of you who missed my piece yesterday, here it is: Struggle & Love
