On this 1,400th day in a row of Daily Writing Practice, it seems appropriate to write about: routine.
Tomorrow I'm meeting up with Nickb and Jackerbie from Protagonize for lunch in Penticton. I've met Nick once before, so if I go missing under mysterious circumstances you know it's all Jack's doing.
I considered making today's prompt dedication, or maybe persistence, but in the end felt like neither of those painted an accurate picture of how I view this blog. Because, honestly, there's not a lot of either of those things involved.
At some point every day, usually in the evening, I sit down at the laptop, bring up this site, and figure out what word or phrase or exercise I'm going to write about on that day. And then I write.
Simple as that.
It's no more of an effort than eating breakfast or taking a shower or checking my email. It's just something I do, day after day, and that number up top there just keeps getting bigger.
Okay, there are some days where it's a whole lot harder than any of those things.
But mostly? It's just part of my daily routine.
