Well, the title relates to several things in my life right now, most noticeably with my blogging. I started my blog late in 2014 to start sharing with the world my writing, which consists mostly of bits and pieces of stories. At that time I only had a part time job, thus plenty of time to ponder my writing. I was pretty consistent in my posting, but it was mostly new material, not quite what I had planned for my blog.
But then I got a real, full time, job. My writing and posting dropped dramatically (surprise, surprise). I kept plugging away at it, posting sporadic until Christmas time, where, after the new year, I stopped posting and even writing. I promised myself I would start writing again as soon as I got use to my new busy schedule. But time never seems to slow down for me. When I catch a break, all I can think of is resting, which translates into sitting on my duffer doing nothing.
So I arrived a few days ago at the WordPress post for April writing 101 “Building a Blogging Habit”. I thought here! Here is a good way to force myself back into the habit of writing! Then I promptly miss the first “deadline”. So here it is. My first post of this class and of 2015. Here’s to keeping it up and doing better.
P.S. This was not a 20 minute free write (I hated even the 10 minute ones from the daily prompt). This was something I wanted to share, to explain, since early March.
