I once read that if you do something for twenty one days it becomes a habit.

Why can’t that apply to dieting? I’m serious.

But that isn’t really what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to wax lyrical about 31 things. A great class from Big Picture and Ali. In a nutshell she provides a prompt every day along with writing tips to help get to the nitty-gritty of the prompt.

And throughout the class so far I have  logged onto my computer first thing in the morning to write my bit for the ‘thing’ of the day. I was already in the habit of turning the computer on in the morning after walking Buddy so this should have reaffirmed the habit. See I was making a point – really.

There is something about the first thing in the morning. The quiet, the potential of a brand new day and just the time to sit and ponder.

I am hoping that after the class finishes I still sit and pound out a few words every day. Whether it be journalling for future layouts or draft blog posts or random rambling I want to keep writing.

It feels like a good habit to have.
