The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Low Qiuling

2 cups

I have to say, this is one of the finest time I’m so proud of myself. Since many years ago reading “The Artist’s Way”, I said I want to do my morning page daily, which is to really just sit down, and write 750 words. Of course I failed for many years. Starting and stop, restarting and failing. Along the way, I lose faith, in my writing and in myself. Today, I finally live up to my words. I actually completed my One Month Challenge. laugh Still now, I don’t know what prompt me to do it in the first place. I remembered when I signed up, I was so afraid. I was hesitated, and the worst of all, I doubted myself. “Can I? Can I really do this? I always say I want to do this, do that…. But I never complete my stuff…” The reason I always avoid the challenge is, I don’t want to fail. I don’t want to appear on the Wall of shame. I feel ashamed. Most of all, I am afraid to fail. So the best way not to fail?—— Don’t do anything at all! Haha. Of course this already marks the failing… … I’m sure all of us have dreams to fufill in this lifetime. Dreams we may have ever since as a little child, perhaps. Dreams we don’t just want them to live in our head, we want them alive, real, now, in our life. The thing is, YES. They can come true, when you take action, when you say, “I’ll write.” It doesn’t matter how much, or how long, or even how good we are. The very thing is, do it. Write. What is the dream you always want to do? Write. Write it down, write it all down, especially the very one you are so fearful of, the one you believe it’s not you who can. Write. So for those who actually did take the challenge and ended up in the Hall of shame…. Don’t give up! You’re already very brave, and you’re good enough. Take the challenge again and I’m sure one day, the daily writing is one of your habit. If some lazy bums like me can do something, and actually able to learn to be disciplined, I’m sure all of you can do it even more, and much, much better than me. Thank you, 750words. You prove to me that I can achieve anything I want, when I put my heart, mind, body and soul into it. Even just 1% is enough. Most of all, I fall in love with writing all over again. I want to take One Month Challenge again in November. I want to write forever. Thank you. :)
