I have been posting here on my blog every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the past several weeks and so far this seems to be a sustainable structure. Consistency is key, so committing to regularly scheduled blogging days will help to ensure I continue to cultivate my writing skills with good habits.
That being said, planning times in advance inevitably leads to days where overcoming writers block is necessary and oh-so challenging. Today was one such day, where I started and stopped writing several different kinds of posts, from How-To Cure A Weather-Induced Headache to How-To Cure A Twitching Eyebrow to 5 Interesting Things About Writers (This One In Particular). The headache and twitching eyebrow both went away, in case you were curious, and perhaps I will write about those another time.
My thoughts seemed to be swirling all day in a flurry mirroring that of the snowstorm outside and I couldn’t decide on just one topic to write about when so many were bubbling up to the surface. But, motivation always comes from action, not always the reverse, so being determined in writing something helped me to produce what I intended to and to stay on track with my personal goals. By sharing a peak behind what goes on in the mind of a blogger, maybe that in itself is worth at least a quick blog post.
On the bright side, I had a lovely day inside avoiding the snow, curling up with a good book (John Green’s Paper Towns), doing some research, and playing Super Mario Odyssey with my partner. Hopefully as the snow slowly comes to a stop or at least to a gentle fall, so too will my racing thoughts subside. A cold shower and getting enough sleep are surprisingly simple yet effective remedies for that.
If you made it this far, I really appreciate you reading my post. I have written better ones than this and I plan to greatly improve over time. I am still new to blogging and thus still discovering my niche. I seem to be gravitating towards personal development and writing snippets of short stories. It will be interesting to look back on this in a couple months. Regardless, I will be posting next in 2 days. I hope you see it 🙂
