It’s no secret I’ve been bad at keeping this blog updated lately. I’ve gotten very lax about publishing on here and I really don’t know why, but I know I have to get back to it.
I could say the facts, but they may come across as excuses. I’m at a new job now, my only job now so it’s nice not to have to be running from different jobs each day. But I’m getting used to the new schedule, even newer considering I’m going to a different location next week and will have a whole new schedule to learn. Which is great and exciting, but something I think I’ve been using as an excuse. I haven’t even recorded anything for my podcast in over a month and I know I’ve been using my new schedule as an excuse for that too.
But it doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing, I’ve actually kept very busy on the writing front, just not on here. I’ve been working on stories for to submit to different magazines and have even been working on my own projects, but I’ve neglected here. Maybe it’s because coming up with a topic can be hard some days and that writing blog posts and book reviews aren’t always as exciting to write about as the stories in my head. But even if it’s more work it’s something I want to do, work I want to put in.
I just have to get better at that, get back into the swing of things again.
I can’t really say how I plan on doing this because truthfully I don’t know. Try to keep and maintain a schedule? Try to get excited about the topics I think of? The book reviews I write? Reading them is exciting, but trying to organize my thoughts about why sometimes seems impossible.
All of those seem like probable solutions and ones I need to motivate and force myself to do, and it’s something I plan to. Maybe I just need to stop worrying, stop focusing on the task of it, and just enjoy the fun.
Because writing is what I like to do, it makes me feel good and I want it to keep doing that.
