Each day, I sit down to do what I'm doing right now. I write. Every day. No matter what. Typically, I do this at night when I'm gathering my thoughts and reflecting on the day. I write about the highlights unless I have some other idea that's better. But regardless, I write.
(Do all writer's write about writing when they have writer's block or is that just me?)
(Say that ten times fast.)
Back to the point.
The commitment is huge in my love/hate relationship with writing. I mean, it's been a roller coaster since day one.
First, I hated writing. Then, I had a teacher who said I was naturally gifted in writing. Then she gave me an F. And I started to think it was all relative and dumb anyway. Then some geniuses came along and said I had to do a 30-day blogging challenge. I wrote one post early, loved it, and I've been writing every day since then.
Lately, I've been feeling a little less confident in my writing skills again. I used to do it for the pure joy of writing. Right now it feels more like a task.
First lesson: Don't let big goals suck the life out of doing things.
Second lesson: Life has up’s and down’s but you’ve got to stay committed.
