There's nothing religious or even Christian about my decision; it's just that the Lenten discipline seems to work for me. I seem to be able to stick to things better than if I set my own targets at random. I have no idea why it should be so but it's worked successfully in previous years so I'm going for it.
It's 9.30 pm now and I've only just done some novel writing but I managed about 600 words so that's cool.
We'll see how it goes ...
P.S. Maryb has a great post about Lent again this year. She's a fab writer and well worth visiting.
