I am trying to step out of my comfort zone. I’ve blogged about the triathlon training. and will continue to do so until the end of the month (D Day is August 28). But the tri training in about doing something I’m not good at, getting better but being comfortable with being mediocre.
My other comfort zone is about being more present in various writing communities. Responding on listservs. Commenting on blogs. Letting people know when I think their work is good. And letting people know about this blog.
I am also going to start guest blogging with a group–the New Hampshire Writer’s Network blog. I am an admirer of their work, and thrilled to be a part. Those blog posts are taking some crafting.
These tend to be written on the fly. But I need to keep up with them, and use them as a daily exercise. Especially if I start letting people know it is here.
Stretching is exhausting. But it feels great.
