Hope*writers started a new challenge: a word prompt a day. Today’s is collaborate. I’ve read about some really good collaborations with husbands, God, even dogs. I love it.
I got nothing.
Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of people (and a dog) with whom to collaborate. I have writing partners, friends, parents, siblings, and whole communities of online writers.
The only person I really want to be working with right now is myself.
I’ve already decided I am my own ideal audience, and while I strive to write for each and every one of you, I am the one who really needs to hear my words.
I blog because I need a place to record my progress, fight with the words, and make time to produce something every week. Part of my struggle and the part that makes me want to encourage others, is knowing there IS a struggle. It’s real and it’s challenging and it will not go away.
I believe I will succeed one day (in many ways I already have), and I want the road to that success paved with all my unignorable hardships and mess ups.
According to Crystal Paine, blogging should solve a problem, meet a need, and/or provide hope. I’m encouraged that my blog is doing those things for me.
Tell me, is this blog doing any of those things for you?
Can you think of a way to collaborate?
