Update on my goal to write more on this blog

I realized I can’t write and publish in one go 😡

The first days were ok though.

I was able to have some inspiration exactly when I had free time (= Ellie is asleep πŸ˜„).

After a week or so, although I was writing drafts, I would not publish them. And I got to a point, I didn’t even take the time to write anymore.

My train of thought was this: since I couldn’t publish then what was the point of writing?

Which led me to say “hey wait a minute… that’s ok if I don’t publish as long as I keep writing.”

And eventually some pieces of content will stand out and I’ll be able to schedule them.

So that’s where I’m at today.

But why am I doing this?

I’d like to improve my writing skills because I want to be able to know how to share more of what’s on my mind to understand myself better and ultimately improve myself.

Lesson learned

Maybe I can’t write and publish in one go but that doesn’t mean I can’t write every day.

My mistake was that I was putting pressure on my shoulders to publish something every day whereas what really mattered is that I simply write.

So far, it seems like it’s working better for me that way.

I’m more in the mood to write even if it’s just for 10min. I know later, or in the next days, I can always come back to my drafts and continue.

With Ellie and soon a new baby, it will be more and more difficult for me to have a moment totally free of interruptions.

So I’m happy I found a system that works for me and allows me to explore something I enjoy doing.
