I’m sweating as I type this. Hopefully, the small air conditioning unit will dispel this South Georgia heat from my writing nook in my wife’s photography studio. It’s hot. We’ve hit triple digits over the past week on multiple occasions. I think I know how candles feel when they melt.
Why am I here sweating? Well, the story goes like this.
A few minutes ago, I poured a cup of coffee, grabbed my laptop, and headed to my bedroom. (Did I mention it was air-conditioned?) Glancing at the clock, it was a few minutes before 10 p.m. Two hours to keep the streak alive. That’s plenty of time to write and post something on my blog.
I settled into the comfy chair in the corner to write. (I’m not sure, but did I mention the temperature was nice there?) I turned on my laptop and then it happened. My computer began an update. Why?!? It was overdue, but I didn’t have time for it! I needed to post, so I rushed to my desktop in the studio. (Did I mention the air was not on and it’s an enormous space to cool down?)
Here I am losing massive amounts of fluids, so I can say I posted today. It may seem silly to some, but I made a commitment last week to post daily. I’ve struggled with consistency with my writing over the years and there is only one remedy. Write. At the moment, it is sweat and write. But I think it’s worth it to keep the streak alive.
Have you ever struggled with consistency in an area? What were you willing to endure to push forward? Let me know in the comments section.
