Writing Muscles…

Dear Readers,

I have recently come to the realization that writing is like working out. the more that you do it, the more compelled you are to continue. However, once you take a day off, it gets harder and  harder to start again. I will try harder.

That is all.

    Well i hope you get back to writing soon, as i really miss reading everything you have to say! 🙂

  • It isn’t like I’m going to claim that my junk doesn’t totally suck as I would never assume other people give a crap what I have to say. However, I should point out that I do make a lame attempt at posting every single day. Blog365 does allow me to miss days though, as long as I make an attempt to back date at least one post to fill in for days I missed. (Rachelskirts seems to be abusing this little loophole.)

    Though it might be too late to sign up for Blog365, I highly suggest you make an attempt to write every day anyway. I’m working on paying more attention to little trivia in my daily life that otherwise would go unnoticed by others (and possibly in time even myself.)

    The Roost and Broken Diet, for example, are two writings that I probably would not have made had I not had to find SOMETHING to write about. You Nasty Little Thing, You gives a repeat of my previous thoughts on BK’s Veggie Burgers and New Books details some of the books I bought that day (in case anybody actually cares what I read.)

    I should have blogged about my first day at the dojo but I had already written The Roost. This just illustrates another point. When you get in the habit of blogging every day you will find yourself writing about so much little crap that when something major comes up you won’t have any choice but to write about it.

    I leave it up to you to form your own opinion from here. Quality vs. Quantity? You could always write every day and only publish what you really like. That works well for some people. I was doing that myself before Rachel influenced me into Blog365. Since that time I have gone back and polished up some older writings and then published them. Right now I only have two unfinished writings and I just don’t want to publish them yet because I’m not sure where they’re going. It’s not that I really care too much about that but I was actually trying to be serious with those two pieces.

    Anyway, to put a point to this entire reply… yes… writing can be addictive. Focus is important, though. Take it from me, I have hundreds of K worth of Starjumpers junk and almost none of it is going in the novel.

    So, uhm, yeah.
