Challenge Deux

Dear Dazai,

I’ve decided to set myself another week of challenges. The first week I did made me realise how capable I can be when I put my mind to a task and I want now to feel as if creating more things is within my reach.

I’m also doing this because I have eight days until I’m officially of my anti-anxiety medication and I’m worried about being without it, I’m even dreaming about that concern, so I want something to show that I’m more than that one part of myself. That I’m capable even without it.

So, to that end these are my goals for the week:

1. I’d love to keep writing, and making time for it. I didn’t get to keep to a set time last time, but I’m setting myself a different goal. I want to finish one section of Mae. I have an outline for it and I want to follow it through.

2. I want to create a short story to submit to a competition that’s closing at the end of the month. I don’t have an idea for it yet but I’m confident that won’t stop me if I put my mind to it.

3. I didn’t read seven books last time but I did read five and I would like to read another five this week. If for no other reason than for some inspiration moving forward.

4. I would also like to have another chapter of Beatrice ready to post come Sunday, so it’s going to be some more editing moving forward.

5. Tea is good. I want to keep drinking two teas a day.

6. I spent this last week creating all sorts of things I’d never think of, so I’d like to do something along those lines this week. I haven’t decided what that will be yet but I really want to do it.

7. I’d like to organise a few more shelves. I don’t know exactly how many but I’ll say seven and see where the week takes me. If I’m brave, I may even venture under my bed to clean that out.

As always I’ll check back in every day to let you know how I’ve gone, what I’ve done and what I hope to do moving forward.

Here’s to Challenge Deux!


P.S. I wrote last challenge about a fabulous book of poetry but much to my shame I misremembered the title, it’s actually ‘the princess saves herself in this one’ by Amanda Lovelace
