It'll happen. You'll think a streak of writing is important. It will be. You'll get into a routine. You'll be writing. The topics will even be thoughtful while you're tapping out words from your blissful state of flow.
Then you'll travel.
An opportunity will present itself to visit with somebody you haven't seen in a while. Your values ensure you do the right thing and go visit. Even if it means eight or ten hours of driving over the weekend to fit it in.
You'll lose your streak. It doesn't matter. You have new stories to tell.
You'll get back in the saddle as soon as you can. The world hasn't shifted. No angels have fallen from the sky. Millions of cute puppy pictures have still made their way around Facebook. Life goes on.
Don't worry about a streak. Use them to learn about yourself. An infinite streak would only teach you that it's easy to do. Long streaks of the two and three-week varieties show you're not afraid to be consistent.
Write. Enjoy. Do the work. Then, miss a day or two or ten. Then, get back in the saddle a more mature, wiser person. Share the newfound wisdom and encourage others to continue gracefully. I lost my streak, not because I had to, but because it's not the highest value I have in my life.
How about you?
