In case you missed it, I am attempting to blog everyday in 2018 in hopes of firstly holding a consistent creative space for myself, while improving my writing along the way. I embarked on the journey rather keenly but also blindly, not knowing what exactly I will be writing about. It’s been 7 days since I posted my first blog and here are some of my observations from week one.
7 consecutive blog posts every single day- I actually did it! I have been writing whatever I felt like writing. It came naturally and pretty much just went with the flow. Something a bit interesting is how from the moment I began, I sort of knew that I did not want it to turn into a dear diary but more of an opportunity to post random thoughts on different things in my realm.
Surprisingly, I was actually able to write every single day at around the same time. That hour before bedtime for about 15 to 30 minutes. I then scheduled my posts to go live at the exact same time the following morning at 11:11AM. Today however wasn’t quite like this because last night was a Saturday night so… yeah.
I found writing in the evening calming especially on long days and so I intend on keeping it this way. Because I’m writing and posting today’s blog right now I might have to shuffle things around for tomorrow.
I’m still thoroughly energized by the idea of writing daily so the party is still a party. Rather than anticipating failure, I’m choosing to embrace the satisfaction I will feel about this little adventure this time next year.
Until next time – live and love,
