My first 10 days of the Post Every Day for 30 Days Writing Challenge
I have found myself in the middle of a ‘Post Every day For 30 Days Challenge.’ Until this point, I have resisted. The main reason being time, being made redundant solves this problem. The other reason I have never committed to the 30 days challenge is fear of failure. That fear of failure is why I have only publicly committed to the 30-day challenge, ten days in.
So ten days into the challenge here is what have I discovered:
- My claps have gone down but, my followers have increased.
- Coming up with daily ideas hasn’t been as hard as I thought but, still hard.
- A routine has helped — I use the same routine every day. Edit and publish the post I wrote yesterday, write a new post.
- Doing the 30-day challenge using publications is almost impossible.
- The more I write, the less I edit.
- Any attempt to republish older work is pointless. — My writing was so terrible back then it is more rewriting the posts, than editing.
- I couldn’t find any publications dedicated to reviews and books. To fill that void I started a publication. Bookworm Sanctuary.
- This is the 10th post, I’m shocked. I’m a third of the way through. How did that happen?
Having participated in a virtual blog tour for Heather Osborn a review of her book. This was a good read, until the last 20 pages. It was also my first post to Bookworm Sanctuary.

This post was written for two reasons. It was my first post to The Ascent and was also a submission to a literary magazine. It was fun to document my start in writing.
My fourth post was published between Medium and my company website, AB Solutions. This was one of those that needed rewriting rather than editing. I was appalled at the first try but, pleased with how this turned out.
The idea for this post came from a content post I wrote. It is part of a series that I have written called Five Tips. The series keeps adding to itself although I never set out to write for it.

For several months now I have written for The Weekly Knob. Their weekly writing prompts have helped me build a love for short story writing. Over the weeks I have also built myself quite a portfolio. This post incorporated the writing prompt of ‘Fountain.’

This is a personal post for me which I loved writing. For years I have saved my favourite book quotes. This was my opportunity to share them with my followers.
