Creators and Dreamers:
Get you a friend as committed as you are. I say that lightly, but sincerely I know that’s not an easy thing to come by. But let me tell you: If you do, you become catalysts for each other.
Meet Jenn. I mean, she’s not here, but she’s usually in my living room about once a month as we frantically type away the day, mostly only stopping for a chitchat at lunch.
And now, she’s waking up early to get an hour of writing in before work every. single. workday. Y’all, she one-upped me!
But that’s okay, because I need someone to one-up me right now. I need that reminder of the hunger. Not that I lost it, just that it’s been laying low for a bit.
This month, I’m going to join Jenn some mornings, and we are gonna get things done. By the end of this month, I’ll have a routine more solidified and probably a selfie to share with you, so brace yourself. But until then…
Find your own Jenn. Someone with a similar goal and a similar drive. Whatever commitment level you’re at, get someone right there with you, and keep each other going. It’s powerful.
It’s not easy to find a Jenn, so if you have one, treasure that! And, maybe tell me about your Jenn in the comments 🙂

I haven’t found a Jenn for writing – I mean most of my friends are all much more successful than I am at being productive (two of my best friends are doing phds in creative writing or English – gah!) but I have a Jenn in my mum. She is the most honest person in my life who doesn’t make me feel defensive. She will judge me for my Netflix watching. ‘Still haven’t done any writing? But you’ve managed to watch a whole season of Orange is the New Black? Hmm…’
There’s no brutal honesty like a parent’s brutal honesty it seems.
Hahaha, ohh Netflix, always sucks us in, doesn’t it? But it’s okay, it’s “researching how to hook an audience” 😉
I need a friend like your mom! I have to be responsible for myself, and that’s no fun and not as effective of course lol.
