Keeping yourself writing during the summer can be a real challenge, and as this marks the first official Why Not Write Wednesday? of the summer vacation, let's focus on that challenge, and other challenges that can cross our paths throughout life.

Here are some prompts to help you start out...

Can you think of a time when an obstacle really stood in your way? What was the challenge and the coveted reward?

What did you do to overcome the forces keeping you from the reward?

How did you feel before you tackled the challenge? How did you feel after?

What did you learn from the challenge?

Can you write a "How-To Guide" or some other step-by-step instructions on how to overcome whatever stood in your way? Try writing it in the same format and everything!
