I had set myself a goal at the start of the month: write 30 blog posts this month, one every day. It is now the 29th day and I DID IT. I even did it while moving to a whole new blogging platform (Blogger to WordPress) and editing my novel.
But, every once in a while I thought I couldn’t do it. I woke up in the morning and thought: crap, I can’t write a single thing today. Oh well, I’ve failed. Too bad.
Before the day was over, I had a post up and shared it all over the internet. That’s how I roll 🙂
The thing is, if you get in your own way, you can get out of your own way too ?
Once you realise that, you learn to trust that your muse always finds a way to whisper through the cloud of self-defeating thoughts.
And deep within I know that while I whine about not writing a post, the post I am to write is percolating.
Sometimes, the idea for the post of the day is already there, somewhere in my notes, or in my journal. Just a simple scribble can get me writing.
I am so happy with my progress this month. I think I have written at least 5000 words in blog posts alone.
I can’t promise I will repeat the same next month, as it is a month with a theme, I will post more on that on Dec. 1!
