cure for writer’s block: the blog-tember challenge

As you probably gathered from my previous blog-post, the struggle has been real when it comes to writing.  Serious writer’s block over here.  So I have found a temporary solution.  Let me explain. ( tl; dr –  backstory to why I am participating in this challenge.)
I love reading other’s blogs.  I love learning about others’ lives and getting to know people, so when I get to blog stalk people, hear their funny stories, and see an insight into their lives, I get really happy.
While I have never used this blog to reach out socially to other bloggers (which most bloggers do), I follow random people’s blogs on Bloglovin’ and it’s the best.  Well I found this challenge pop up on my Bloglovin’ feed and I felt inspired. I thought, I can do that!
By committing to this challenge publicly, I am forcing myself to write every day.  I know that when I write every day I am happier, calmer, and feel like I am doing something for myself.  I’d invite anyone else to follow along and participate too!  You could just do it on your instagram account, but a blog would be even better.

To give credit where it is due, this a challenge that Brave Love Blog is putting together.
The challenge is to write every day in September and share it to your social media accounts.  You can write whatever you want, the purpose to get writing every day.  Below are the Blog-tember daily prompts that are not necessary to follow, but helpful to those of us with writer’s block.
