Don't break the Chain!

After the A-Z challenge I almost forgot about the IWSG. 

So I didn't have anything prepared, so forgive me if this is a little light on content! 

There's something called 'Don't break the chain'. Basically, the theory behind it is that if you do something that you find difficult (exercise is one that people commonly attempt!) and if you do it for a certain length of time without taking a day off, then it becomes much easier. 

I've shown that I can do the 30 day A-Z challenge, so I'm going to challenge myself once my University exams are over at the end of May to write for 30 days. It doesn't matter what, or how much, but to write something, every day, for a month. 

One of my biggest insecurities is that I'm never actually going to finish anything, despite all the 'wonderful' ideas that I have buzzing around in my brain. Hopefully this little exercise (in June, my exams finish 28th May) will help the writer juice start flowing again that University has all but sucked me dry of.

  1. That sounds like a great goal! Good luck in that and your exams!

  2. Hi Sarah, visiting from the IWSG. I agree with the thought "Don't break the chain." Its easier once we form a pattern or a routine and stick to it.

  3. How's the craic, Sarah :)

    GOOD LUCK with your exams - and your writing experiment, I've heard it only takes 21 days to "create" a habit, so it may be easier than you think :)

  4. Normaly I'd pass by a blog which has not been updated sinc ethe first of May but I presume your doing exams so good luck and I hope you get a job . my son is still looking.
