What Would Happen if I Write Everyday?
30 days of consistent writing.
I have been toiling with this idea for over years now. Not exactly about everyday writing but writing with consistency. And I have never fully committed myself to it.
Why? you ask.
I think there are more reasons than I could sum up but I will try.
I Get Distracted
I am not a person who has one interest that means everything to them. I am interested in more things than I can count on my fingers and most times I want to do them all. I am a “want it all” type of girl.
I Get Lazy
Even when I pick writing over most things, I don’t keep up with commitments, sometimes due to the strict deadlines, I put myself against, and other times due to the lack of response I receive on my writing. And believe me, that plays a huge part. Maybe it shouldn’t but it does. After all, what is a writer without its readers? But hey, I need to get out of this mentality.
I Want To Have Fun
I work a full-time job and writing isn’t exactly something that pays off my rent. I used to write for fun but when I started to plan to write regularly it became a chore and something I had to put effort towards and on most days I did not want to look at a computer after my day job was over.
Toiling with the idea hasn’t led me far from where I started. But the desire to write and create content that my readers (which, by the way, aren’t that many as of now) would enjoy never left my heart, even for a day.
I have moved to 2 major cities in this pandemic and 2 really good jobs but the only constant desire besides exercising and getting stronger was to WRITE and WRITE AS I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN BEFORE.
My Current State of Mind
With my current job being remote, I decided to give this another shot. Now that I am more than a month old at the new job, know the lay of the land a bit, and save time on my commute, I am beginning to plan my days to incorporate writing.
Honestly, it is harder in reality than in theory. You have to work, exercise, socialize with family and friends, cook, clean, spend quality time with your partner and go after your passion all while also getting a good 8 hours of sleep every day.
And don’t you dare tell me sleep is overrated.
So yeah, here I am wondering, planning and hopefully, this time around will also be executing on the plan of writing every day. I plan to keep posting here and keep you all updated on my writing adventures this time.
Are you picking up on any old/ new desires dreams? Do you want to share your thoughts and struggles? Do you need an accountability partner? I sure as hell could use one.
