I am up to my old tricks again, missing posts. What is it with me, do I want to write or not? The answer is yes, of course I do, I love to write. Why, then, do I not do it more often every day? I do write at least something almost every day. I work on a letter (yes, I handwrite and snail mail letters and postcards; you should too, it’s fun), I make a note in the TV Journal, I work a little on the current novel or murder mystery, I MAKE MY BLOG POST. As I said, almost every day.
The reason I started this blog (9 years ago, is that possible?), it was to get myself to definitely write every day. I thought it might segue into other writing, and I guess it has, but not enough. Next question: Is there ever enough? Discuss among yourselves. Please comment with any conclusions (is that too needy, asking for comments? Oh, well).
In the next four weeks I will have more time to write, because I have been furloughed from work again. Previous furloughs have been less successful for me, but that is obviously my fault. Equally obviously, it is up to me to do better this time. Will I do better? I make bold to say, YES, I WILL!!!
I put the three exclamation points to encourage myself. I will make a plan, set a schedule, and write a few blog posts sharing my successes, if any (you see, a little pessimism must sneak in) .
So this is my Wuss-out Wednesday Post, published early Thursday morning: a pep talk to myself. Thank you for bearing with me.
