I have made a commitment to write every day.

In fact, I would have written at least a couple of hundred short articles by now.

Every day, I start with a blank word document.

On some days it’s easy. The writing just flows through me.

On some days, it’s really hard and scary.

I am starting at the blank doc, and not a single word is coming out.

And then I realize that if a professional athlete doesn’t feel like going to practice… what does she do?

She frigging goes to practice.

Even when she doesn’t feel like.

And then that’s what I do.

I might write a really bad article on some days. But I show up.

I hit the publish button.

I ship.

And guess what… I like myself more when I ship.
