I was over 300 days. I was participating in NaNoWriMo and I was on task with my word count to hit 50K by November 30. That ended on Saturday, November 10. Because that’s the day my Daddy died. He was 70. I’m 43. And now… now I have to try to write, because, how else am I going to face this day?

It finally happened. I missed October 29th. My first absent day since July 2012.

So I’ve picked myself up, and started again. Because this is a habit now, part of the rhythm of my life, and I am happy about that. Sure, I liked seeing the numbers go up. But I’m also happy to know that I didn’t actually need the numbers to go up.

I have written every day for 2,121 days. Sometimes I was sick, sometimes it was late, sometimes I had nothing to say and said over and over and most times I came to the blank page and felt I had nothing to say yet poured out my heart and left sorrow and pain on the page and left the chair in front of the computer screen, feeling lighter.
