Today is Sunday November 2, 2014 and I have decided to participate in the See Jane Write 30 day #BlogLikeCrazy challenge. I am accepting this challenge in hopes to gain more discipline as a writer. Although yesterday marked the 1st official day of this challenge, and today is my first post (within the challenge), I will not fret over the technicality. Nor will I agonize and beat myself up for any other mishap that life may throw my way, during this 30 day challenge. At the end of this, I'll have two things to celebrate. My growth as a writer, and my sons' fourth birthday. What a gloriously symbolic day, November 30th will be! :)
For me, this challenge is about 30 days of dedication. 30 days ON (full focus on my blog) and NO days OFF. And for me, if there lye a day that I am unable to post... Yet, I know I've brainstormed, researched, and worked in my Blog Book (my life line. my old school 5star notebook that I can't live without.), then I'm not going to count my day as unproductive, and feel the sting of failure or disappointment; just because I didn't make it to my computer that day. I work full time, I have freelance side gigs, and I am a wife and a mother...my plate is FULL!
So instead, I'll focus on the positive joys that I anticipate from this challenge. Being able to know that I am growing my blogs content by the day. And hopefully my readership as well. Creating a discipline that should shape my overall productivity as a writer, and begin to shape my path. There are a lot of other projects that linger in the back of my mind, because I am still in the process of trying to find a balance. So they're undeveloped. i jot them down, brainstorm them a bit, but for the most part they sit in my brains to-do list. How to balance working on multiple writing projects at one time, but still finishing them all, in a timely matter is something I long to master.. But...what would a timely matter, actually be? #StillFiguringThingsOut! LoLz. I hope to introduce some of the other elements that I want Life. Culture. People. to consist of, as well as letting you all get to know me better. i will make a devote effort to grow my readership within the next 30 days, as well as connect with them. I want to know yall's thoughts! Please please please, take the time to drop me a line. I promise I will reply! :)
I'm going to have fun with this thing...so prepare for some really randomly interesting reads!
