As I start writing this post, I’ve yet to write up a formal plan for how I’m going to complete this goal of writing 100 words a day for 100 days.
I feel it will be important to set milestones and at each milestone, review where I’m at. This will give me a shorter timeframe to focus on which will make it easier to keep going. Rather than focusing on the big, impossible 100 day target, I just need to focus on the smaller goal.
25 days may be a good milestone. Breaks the target into four manageable chunks.
Also, I’m already starting to think in terms of weeks. I’m considering making every Friday Flash Fiction Friday. Every Sunday I plan to post about Jesus and faith.
I’ve already realised that I need to be writing two posts on Saturday – one for Sunday and one for Monday so I can take a day off each week.
Yet with all this thinking around planning…
On Sunday we worshipped using a Robin Mark song: Jesus, All For Jesus.
The words always give me pause. My ambitions. My hopes. My plans. Can I really surrender these? Have I really surrendered them to God?
Who am I blogging for?
I confess that I blog mainly for myself. I write mainly for myself. I am ambitious mainly for myself.
I suspect I will always battle with an inner desire to do for myself.
Yet, may my focus turn outward. May I look to serve Jesus through my writing. I suspect this is what I was made for, that I will only find freedom and purpose by living for Jesus.
