Just Jot It January 24th – Compelled – We’re almost there!


So hard to believe, but there’s only a week to go ’til the last day of January. Then after a slightly elongated February we’ll be looking forward to spring, and looking to the weatherman to find out if we’ll have an early one or a late one. I think for many of us in North America, our mild December has made this month (or at least the winter so far) seem much shorter, don’t you?

The fact that there’s only a week left of January means we’re almost finished Just Jot It January too! If you’ve made it this far without missing a post, congratulations! If you’ve at least written a name and number down on a post-it note, good for you! You’ve jotted something every day. πŸ˜€

But we can’t stop here. We’ve got to keep going! Whether you’re compelled by the enjoyment of jotting out a post every day, or you’re simply on a roll and the momentum is carrying you, it doesn’t matter. JusJoJan is an exercise to remind ourselves that we can write something every day. We’re all writers after all, every one of us who has a blog. And yes, I’m talking to those who have art and photo blogs too – the titles and tags have got to come from somewhere, right?

So whatever your motivation, keep that compulsion going. We’re gonna do this! πŸ˜€

The “Compelled” prompt is brought to you by Willow at Willowdot21. Please stop by her blog to have a read and say hi!

  3. Right at this moment, as the seconds roll into a new day, I am compelled to turn off my computer and read a book until I can sleep.

  7. Seems to me, in my rush (my compulsion) to create a post, I forgot something important.
    “Thanks for all of this. You have been amazing!,” she cheered. “There, I was compelled to say so ;D”, she added.

  16. I agree, it seems to be speeding by. Just last night, I thought about how close we are to February, and then there’s March, which means it’s not very far from warmer weather, when it seems we just now got really cold!

  19. Thank you Linda for keeping us all going with your support and encouragement πŸ™‚


  20. I couldn’t write a post every day if my life depended on it. Sorry, Linda. But I do understand your feelings about the winter – it seems shorter than usual to me, too. I love that our snowfalls have been less than normal this year. I don’t know how the storms hitting the East Coast have managed to miss Buffalo this year, but I’m quite content with it.

  24. You did a wonderful job! Way to go! πŸ˜€ I find it difficult to write a post everyday. Yet you could do so for both your blogs! Bravo! πŸ˜€


    • Thanks, Fun! πŸ™‚ I understand completely how real life can sometimes get in the way – I struggle sometimes to post for a week here and there myself. But this month I have all of you to give me an extra push. Who needs sleep? Haha. πŸ™‚
