So I’m going to try to use this blog as my impetus, going to try to write… I want to say “everyday”, but am afraid that is setting me up for failure. “A couple times a week” sounds so lame. “a lot” is even worse. What is my issue?
I have thoughts. I find myself frequently turning off my ipod while I walk, just to let the thoughts wander. So I do have something to say.
An I LIKE to write. I love to hear people chuckle over faux press releases or new stories I put together. I’m thrilled to have a by-line appearing in a new news magazine this Friday.
I think it’s time.
I know, we all get the same 24 hours in a day. I’m kind of sick of being told that. Because I have set up my life wrong–the way many women have–so that I’m pretty much in charge of everything. So a half hour of quiet time…time alone, without laundry to fold and dishes to wash, or homework to encourage… doesn’t happen all that much. When I do get a little extra time, I’ve been trying to get out and walk a bit, since I don’t exercise anymore. At all.
I think to write, let’s say, 5 DAYS a WEEK, will be a New Year’s resolution (again). Perhaps, if I think someone might be reading the stuff, maybe leaving an occasional comment, that will serve as a reward. I will bribe myself with that.
I’m agreeing with you if you’re now thinking I’m totally pathetic.
But I’ll try. No, I will write. At least here, several times a week.(Another non-committal word).
