Day 13 of #1000wordsofsummer 2021

Hi friends. Today you will write 1000 words. Because we are all coming out of a very terrible year and this is one thing you can do for yourself, one gift you can give yourself. Writing these 1000 words. Today this one is for you. Whatever that means for you. I can’t tell you what that means for anyone else. It might just mean powering through a tough spot in your work, challenging yourself to something you’ve been afraid to try, or to give yourself the time to try. Giving yourself the gift of feeling proud of yourself for accomplishing something. It might mean just writing something gentle and soothing to yourself in a journal. Giving yourself the gift of tending to yourself. For me, writing something purely for myself usually means writing a scene about eating or having sex, because it just entertains me, so I might give that a try. Give yourself the gift of 1000 words that will make you feel great today.
