Two Weeks Left · 14 August 2013

In two weeks, I will end a year of writing and posting something six days a week. I am excited and anxious at the same time.

With two weeks to go on my yearlong health blogging, I realize that I have covered quite a bit of ground in terms of writing about my health. I have written time and again about eating and running even to the point where I sometimes feel I have repeated myself. I realize that the whole point of this crazy exercise was to get healthy, but I never really thought too much about the writing part. Except to think God was crazy for making me write and post something every day.

With two weeks left, I realize I am the crazy one.

With two weeks left, I wonder what I am going to do with my writing. I wonder what new project I will take on. I even wonder if I ought to keep publishing each day.

(Actually, I doubt I will publish every day, but maybe more than just once a week.)

I have no doubt that I need to keep writing each day. In fact, I have more ideas now than I have had in a long time. I have screenplays and essays and books that need to be started. More importantly, I have projects that need to be finished.

With two weeks to go, I am also realizing that projects really do have endings. Even though my journey toward health will never end, the writing project will. There will be an end to the madness of publishing a piece about health five or six days a week. So regardless of what does or does not show up on my websites, the writing will not stop.

There are too many words that need to be written. Too many things that need to be said. Too many stories that need to be told.

In two weeks, I will have completed a short segment on my lifelong journey toward health. I will have completed a year of blogging about that journey. I will have solidified the discipline of writing every day.

I am excited and anxious about the end. Because it is also a beginning.
