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 😄).
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.
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.
