I wrote last month about how I was trying to write more than the occasional blog post. As much as I love writing, I always put writing ideas on the backburner for other things, or worry about peoples’ reactions. I’ve decided to do something a bit out of my comfort zone: Write a blog post daily for the month of October.
31 blog posts.
That’s a lot.
Thankfully there’s a whole community of people doing the same thing, over at Write 31 Days.
There are a lot of topics and ideas that I’ve thought about. But, my Five Minute Friday community has come up with a whole month’s worth of 5 minute freewrite topics. And I decided for the 1st time doing this, that was the best thing for me to do. The 5 minutes fixes my time/procrastination issues, and I feel like freewriting is better for me than 31 days of 1 topic (I’m not gonna lie: I’d probably get bored).
I might veer off on some days to my own topic, but I’m going to stick to the 5 minute rule (ok I turn it into 10 sometimes whoops). For someone that writes sometimes weekly, this will be a good way for me to dip my toes in to this whole thing.
Who knows? Maybe this will help me begin to write more.
I hope so.
