In case you’re wondering, my counting isn’t off. I skipped days 14-16 purposely, deciding instead to take a 3 day weekend off from writing for the Easter holiday. That in itself is a “new” because normally I would have held myself to it. But, that’s one of the beauties of freelance writing, being on my own schedule. Nevertheless, I struggled with the decision to take a break because I committed to doing the 30 days and I don’t like to come up short.
Today’s “new” correlates to what I mentioned above. Initially I wasn’t even going to mention having skipped the three days; I was just going to write today’s post. However, I’m learning that it’s okay to share your shortcomings and fails. It provides for more transparency and may help someone else in the process.
