Loosening up.

29 Jul

I have not changed my official rules. I must complete a story every day for a year to meet my personal Daily Shorty challenge. Because I never know when I might fall, I’m going to continue to celebrate every completed story by gathering story facts and I’m going to scream from the rooftops whenever I complete another week, scream louder if I close out another month. I’m about to hit another mark partly because I’ve been less strict with myself re unofficial rules. Until this last week, if I hand wrote the entire story, I was insistent about typing it up before going to bed. I was posting before bed, too. But the length of the challenge is beginning to wear on me and the Olympics will be a huge distraction for a while. So if I want to stay steady, I’m going to have to be a little more loose about typing and posting. Wish me luck!
