Yes, you might have noticed, that my goal this week was to try to write every single day. We home school our kids, and writing is an important part of that for them. Writing is important for everyone. But I realized, as with everything, in order for my kids to become writers, I need to set a good example.

And really who am I kidding? This blog is for me and not very many people read it. I'm ok with that. Not everything that gets posted needs to be amazing.
But today I push through. I write about not having anything to write about, and the value of writing everyday, even though I myself am so terrible at the consistency of it.

I want to be better prepared to polish the last 5% of all of my work this year.
How do you find the strength to push through, and complete something? Leave a comment below!
