I tried to write early before breakfast and again later in the afternoon. The little one climbed on top of the stool then down again. Up and down and back up with a book. We read about cars. Lunch came early. Eggs, potatoes, avocado. I cleaned up and he went back to the stool. Then the book and me reading to him. He didn’t sleep much, I didn’t write much. So it went.
I’m giving this yearlong project a spin. Undoubtedly, I will fall and pick up again. Knowing this makes it easier. Still, I plan to show up to record a short photo and story of my day. You’re welcome to join me. I’d love it really. We can give each other high fives and geek out with a hashtag (#ayearofus), not because everyone is doing it, but because we’re doing it, together. Showing up every damn day to make this creative habit real.
