Change, Change, Change

Change, Change, Change

The main change I wanted to happen when I started writing a blog was to dedicate myself to writing every day––to make writing top priority. That has happened over the past 19 months, when I have written every single day, no matter what.  The biggest change came about because I started writing first thing in the morning rather than putting writing off until I found a convenient time. Now I put other things off in favor of writing.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Singular Sensation.” If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?

    Two things set my day off to a good start: reading the bible each morning and writing. Everyday is important. During the 2013 NaNoWriMo challenge I announced on the North Texas Rough Writers Facebook page that I didn’t feel like writing. Joyce, one of the leading members said: “WRITE ANYWAY”. It works.

    It has really taken over MY life to such a degree that now I have to find time for the rest of my life … and it turns out, I really don’t want to cancel everything else. I thought I’d have all that free time when I retired. What happened???

      You took the words out of my mouth, Marilyn. Just recently I’ve had three rather labor-intesive activities added to my life and I feel like a cheating spouse taking time away from blogs to do them. I know it’s healthier to have a balance, but I feel guilty that I’m not commenting as much as before, even though I’m still reading blogs. Problem is I’m not getting much sleep! Think we should start a 12 step program for bloggers?

      How many hours a day do you spend blogging, Cee? Including posting, reading blogs of others, commenting and answering comments? You and Marilyn seem to be the most faithful readers and commenters–springing up pretty quickly after I post!

      I’ve been a writer since I was in my teens, but I’ve never been this disciplined at writing before. I guess I had to be pretty disciplined while writing my books, but that was more of an assemblage and a series of organizational spurts over a two year period. Actually writing for hours each and every day I can thank to blogging. I think there is something about being immediately read that rewards us and it becomes a Pavlovian response! Ha.

      Duchess, if you haven’t read purpletoothedgrin.wordpress.com I bet you would enjoy her posts regarding motherhood. I haven’t seen her post anything lately, but I’ll try to find an URL to send you. I just loved her blog.

    Love your singular sensation! Yes, keeping the writing going. For the first time, I have dedicated myself to 365 Days of Writing using the WordPress prompts. I’m early in the game and have already experienced the I-don’t-feel-like-writing-today syndrome. BUT I’m keeping up. I too find the prompts helpful. If I can find something to say about subjects that don’t interest me, it helps me grow as a writer.
