Did I fail? I don't think so.

So if you've been reading my posts you'll know that I've been trying to keep up with a daily regimin of content. Even though I've technically kept to that challenge, I feel, especially with last night's post, that I fell off a bit. 

This is getting a reality TV vibe here. 

The challenge, I see now, has done what it should have. It let me see how it feels to keep up with a sort of deadline. 

I feel I have come to the point where I understand why I was challenging myself and can miss a day or two here and there if it means time to create more thoughtful posts, a higher standard or quality. 

I have been inundated with writing tasks this week. Whether reading for a book review, or finishing up a short story for an anthology which will soon start with its advertising campaign. Or another project I'm working on with a bud. It was just too much with a day job and family. 

So, I sat back just now and said, damn, I fell off. And it was then when I thought of all this this that I'm writing now. As my mind was free to think and not burdened, it freed up and more came out. 

Don't get me wrong. Deadlines are good. But never look at failure as something bad. There is always a bright side.
