I have been posting here pretty much every day for about two weeks now, and it feels like the more I write, the more ideas I get for writing. Is this how it works then? Because if so, I’m glad I didn’t follow my first instinct – I almost threw in the towel on the blog. In fact I almost deleted the whole thing altogether.
I mean, who wants to live with knowing that they started something and never finished it, not for any legitimate reason, but because they let other stuff get in the way? Some things take precedence of course, but playing Guild Wars for hours on the weekend? Trolling Facebook for no clear reason? Listening to podcasts while pretending to organize the basement? Please. So I started looking for ways to steal time, because I’m pretty sure nobody will notice it missing, but I can sure try to get people to notice my writing if it magically appears on a regular basis. That’s what I’m about now – building a daily “write anything” practice. Post once, good. More than once? Great! But just post something, and show the world that you have what it takes to be a writer, a blogger, because you can’t write the occasional big stuff if you don’t build up chops – the ways and means to write little stuff daily. Do it Rob, you can do it!!
Needless to say, I didn’t delete and in fact am pushing forward. I will be slow and relentless, Sisyphus pushing the stone. This is how anything gets done: one step at a time. One post at a time.
