“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/

Writing Prompts:

  1. What do you feel compelled to do?
  2. What motivates you to keep going no matter what?
  3. Joan Y. Edwards’ manta is “Never Give Up.”  What’s yours?
  4. Which is harder getting started or completing a project?

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment.  I’d love to hear what you’re celebrating today.  Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!
