The 2020 Daily Writing Challenge – July 1

Jo Hawk

2020 Daily Writing Challenge

Writing is like driving at night in the fog.
You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
– E. L. Doctorow

Today is Day 183 of the 2020 Daily Writing Challenge.

Half of the year is in our rear-view mirror. Did you write yesterday? Have you completed 1/2 of your annual writing goal? Perhaps your January forecast bears no resemblance to what has happened so far. There is no shame or blame to assign if the pandemic and ensuing issues have decimated your schedule, messed with your mind, and derailed your fondest dreams. Or have your creative sessions expanded? Is your motivation surpassing your expectations? Are your ideas flowing fast and furious? Either way, today offers a marvelous opportunity to reevaluate, determine where you are in relation to your goals, and adjust your plan so you can continue to move…

Slowing the Onslaught of the River of Time – Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


It seems like 2020 started yesterday, and today I check my calendar to discover half a year swept away. July is living up to its reputation for hot, sun-soaked days, but the expected lazy summer lull is not materializing.

The normal state of my mind is a constant barrage of busy-ness. Thoughts chatter incessantly. I plan the future, review past performances, plot new trajectories, and fret about what I might be forgetting.

Time rushes onward, we stress about the lack of time and wish we could slow its passage. However, research suggests we control our perception and how we experience time. When we engage in benign, semi-pleasant, routine tasks, we enter a mindless state, and time slips away without conscience awareness.

Searching For Answers Written By Nichole Sulpizio


Pulled over on the side of the road because my emotions got to me 💔

It a one of those days

Life’s little maze of disasters


Pain expelled with each breath

Chest crushing

Living hell

Of painful moments

In time

No way to rewind

Searching for answers

All along

Upon my journey



For that moment in time

When the joy of life becomes mine

On a flight to another land

Hand in hand

Patient I wait

For the happiness of someday

To finally happen

Unnoticeably Noticeable

Simply Single

I used to wonder why I would allow myself to settle for situationships that were unquestionably less than ideal. In this moment, I realize that a large piece of it can be attributed to the fact that it’s nice to know that someone is thinking of you… Even if you aren’t the only one on their mind or that they’re sending “checking in” messages to. You at least made the list of being someone they send the good morning or good night to… or whatever it may be. You know you’re a number on the list, but sometimes it’s just nice being noticed.
