My two years of blogging have also taught me many things, mainly things like shoulda coulda woulda. So I made writing/blogging goals for myself:
Write the Draft Now
Not later, not tomorrow, not after I rescue the cat.
I wanted to write this post since yesterday, but sitting in front of a blank screen in the morning, I couldn’t come up with anything, so I didn’t. I thought I will do after lunch, nope, I went to the bookstore instead.
Not until this afternoon, when I was in the shower, I realized writing a post in one sitting is not my style.
I need to write a draft first.
A messy, headache-inducing draft even, but still I can write it anywhere anytime thanks to Evernote.
So when I sit down in front of the laptop to post an article, I don’t need to start from scratch, I just have to edit the draft, add pictures, and click publish.
Another one is:
Write Every Day
We all agree on the benefits of taking a blogging break every now and then, but do you know what’s the best thing about taking a writing break? Nothing.
I missed writing and even though I wrote in my journal every now and then during these breaks, I still struggled to get back into the blogging routine because I didn’t write every day.
So I shall write something, however short, but not a grocery list, every day. I believe it will help to keep the momentum going.
