The other night I went to bed before 10pm.

I knew I had to go to bed early so I could wake up two hours before work to write this very post.

Today is the last day of the seven-day writing challenge that I’m participating in. I’ve successfully written seven blog posts (including this one) in a row. Taking the time each day to sit down has taught me two things:
