30 Day Writing Challenge

In the recent weeks, I discovered something called, "The Writing Challenge." It takes place over the course of 30 days, and each day has a specific topic to write about. I've been slacking in my personal free-writing lately, and so I thought this would be a useful challenge to maybe help get me back into the swing of things. Honestly, you guys, writing is such a good thing to do. It's very therapeutic and stress-releasing, whether you're writing about an incident that occurred, or dreams you plan to achieve. I have a feeling this challenge is meant for bloggers, as it instructs the writer to "post" this and that each day, but I don't plan to publicly take on this challenge, but rather, complete it in my journal as A. I don't want to flood my blog with back-to-back writing challenges, and B. It's good to physically write out things once in awhile as opposed to typing ALL THE TIME. I've changed up the challenge just a little bit because I thought some of the topics were a little silly, but I also wanted this to be more beneficial in a way that you have to really think hard and maybe discover something new about yourself. I wanted to this with you so hopefully I can inspire some of you guys to start writing more as well!

  1. This looks like it would be super helpful for accidentally developing blog topics to write about! Free writing is super therapeutic... and I agree, there's something about getting it physically on paper that goes above & beyond typing. I think I'm going to add this to my "writing" segment of Hal Elrod's 60-min Miracle Morning. It seems to fit with the whole "personal development" theme. Thanks for sharing and I appreciate you fine-tuning the list for us all.

  2. This sounds like a really cool challenge. It reminds me of journaling. I think it helps in discovering things about yourself whether feeling, goals, etc. Really cool!

  3. I love this idea. I've learned that writing can be really relaxing. Thanks for sharing this wonderful challenge.

  4. This was soooo helpful! I would've love to do this 30 Day writing challenge, asap! I just need a really cute notebook!

  5. This sounds like it'd be the perfect way to kept your mind active and come up with some blog post ideas too!!


  6. This sounds like an amazing idea. I want to do this challenge because writing is such a great stress relief and fun way to get your emotions out. I will be saving this.

  7. This seems so achievable, simple but yet so beneficial! I used to try to write my daily achievements for the day and fell off after sometime. This sounds like a good exercise to ease someone into daily writing!

  8. I like this :) I feel like writing is just like a physical exercise. You have to do it every day to keep your strength up!

  9. This sounds like a great idea! I would love to do this writing challenge!
