This writing challenge was so many things for me. It was a test of discipline and consistency. It was also a test of focus for me also. I learned a lot about my writing ability, and I learned that it touches people. That’s always a good feeling.
This challenge is also the first one I’ve actually started and completed! Natelege had another writing challenge back in August and I made it a whopping NINE days. So this time around I wanted to prove to myself that I could start and stick to such a challenge.
Before this, I didn’t think I was much of a writer. I thought it was just something I dabbled in and did out of frustration, but I’ve learned much more. I’ve learned that writing is really my God-given gift, and that it’s something that I need to focus on refining and improving. It’s part of me, so it’s something I need to look after and take care of, like any other part of me. It needs to be exercised and kept in shape.
So I’m very grateful for this challenge for being what it was for me and my writing, and I’d like to say a huge thanks to the homie Natelege for putting it together!
