The Journey to Start (Again)

I started this blog just over a year ago with the intent to begin a habit of writing every day.  I lasted approximately six months.  I really didn’t even last that long, if we’re being truthful.  The problem is discipline.  I want to write.  At any given time, I have about a hundred stories running around in my head.  I constantly have new ideas, new thoughts, and a new inspiration for a completely new thing.  However, I have a life.  I’m a wife.  I’m a teacher.  I’m a student.  I’m a daughter and an aunt.  I have responsibilities.  So, writing ends up at the bottom of my list of things to do each day.

In a perfect world, I would wake up every morning at 6:00 AM ready to start my day.  I would spend an hour each morning writing.  I would be productive at work, and come home energetic and not just sit in front of the TV or Xbox until I fall asleep.  But, this isn’t a perfect world, and I’m not a perfect person.  I’m just a person.  A person who gets tired of looking at a computer screen all day and wants to come home and veg out.  A person who likes playing video games.  A person who loves to read “literary junk food” that I don’t have to analyze or write a paper about.

Will I try to start again?  I don’t know.  I’m keeping this blog, that’s for sure.  I may not update it for another six months, but I’m holding this place.  Because someday, when school is finished, or when I become a college professor who needs to get published, I’m going to pick this thing up and really make something out of it, but for now it is just here as a place for me to talk to myself.

    Put it in my back burner for years!!! My advantage is now I’m retired so that gives me a little more time. Like you, struggling with the schedule discipline anyway.

    Totally understand, Nicole! There is always other stuff that needs to be done! I’ve kept my same blog, but I’m not as regular with adding to it as I want to be. But it’s fun! 🙂
