So? How did week one go?
Judging by the number of conversations I had and pictures of pens, paper and real handwritten words I saw, I think you’re all off to a great start.
I love seeing those pictures and hearing about how you’re doing, so keep them coming!

If you haven’t started yet, do it now! Set a timer for five minutes and just write. Don’t over-think it.
Still need a little help getting started? Try this…
Write about something that happened this week that you never want to forget.
Today we sent lilBRO crawling into bigSIS’ room to wake her up from her nap. Her sweet reaction surprised me. She didn’t seem to think it strange at all that her 9 month old brother was in her room. She slowly woke up (as usual), tossed him her stuffed bunny to play with and then climbed out of bed ever so carefully so she didn’t step on him. They began playing together, all while we watched in from behind her door.
Write about what you’re most thankful for right now.
Clean sheets. That’s what I’m thankful for this very minute.
Write about what you want to do better next week.
I need to be better at enjoying the current thing without ruining it with planning, thinking, obsessing over the next thing. That’s what I want to do better this week. Lord, help me!
And now to announce the winner from this weekend’s giveaway…if you were one of the nine who left a comment, your odds were pretty good.
I had some technical difficulties with my usual random number generator, so I picked a winner the old-fashioned way…with a little help from theBOY.
And the lucky winner is…
When I went back to see who left comment number three, I saw that it was the very lucky (understatement?) Melissa! Congrats, Melissa. You’re going to love your Sassy set of note cards from Jenze.
Thank you, Jenna, for your generosity!!!
So, really. Tell me how you did this first week of Project WriteItDown? Did you crack open your journal? Did you struggle at all?
