“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.”
“Just Jot It January #24–Compelled to Keep Going” by Linda Martin Andersen
I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit. I can’t participate every remaining day this month, but I will join in when I can.
I decided to create a theme to write about: I chose “celebrate.”
Today, I Celebrate That I’m Compelled to Keep Going.
Do I ever wonder WHY I write? Of course. But when I get discouraged, I know deep down in my heart that I’m compelled to keep going. Why? Writing brings me joy and it’s a gift I want to share. A friend of mine writes an inspirational and informative blog with this message: Never Give Up. Meet Joan Y. Edwards here: https://joanyedwards.wordpress.com/2016/01/16/10-steps-to-triumph-in-2016/
- What do you feel compelled to do?
- What motivates you to keep going no matter what?
- Joan Y. Edwards’ manta is “Never Give Up.” What’s yours?
- Which is harder getting started or completing a project?
