The Everyday Athlete



I've been stumped for blog topics and it shows.

When I started blogging, I needed motivation and a place to express the enormous pile of writing-related angst steaming inside of me. Well, thankfully motivation is now ingrained, the angst has dwindled, and anything I can think of to say about either, I've already said, and much more melodramatically than what I would come up with now.

That's good. I don't want to be filled with anxiety and unable to get myself to do what I want to do. I'm glad that I've moved on from where I was at the beginning of this blog, but it sure has left me at a loss when it comes to new entries.

Basically, I'm still editing, and there isn't a lot to say about it really. Same old, same old.

But today I came across a blog that reminded me of the power of writing and the ability to set down a story in a moving, engaging way. This isn't a "writing blog", but it's a fabulous example of good writing and what it can do. Plus it's about challenging oneself to set goals that might seem out of reach...at first.

Beautifully written and very inspiring.
