September Ends, A New Habit Develops?

Last day of Nablopomo September. This is the second time I’ve participated in this daily writing project and like the previous time, towards the end, I get a bit er…lazy. I didn’t have a plan/stuck to the theme this time round. Some notes:

I’m not very good at doing this everyday, especially on weekends. My weekends are usually spent away from the computer, unless I really have to do some work.

It’s not everyday that I have something worth posting. So some posts suck. I feel bad for my readers.

I read that writing regularly can help improve your writing however this exercise has not made me a better writer. Writing well-crafted posts regularly may improve one’s writing but to do that everyday no matter what is a little difficult (not impossible) for someone like me whose ideas tend to come in sporadic, tiny clouds of inspiration.

I do find myself writing slightly faster now. I stop overthinking every little detail of my post before hitting the “publish” button.

I heard that it takes 30 days to form a habit. I don’t think I have developed daily writing habit. Yet.

I really admire folks who can write beautifully on a daily basis. Will I be doing this again in future? Maybe, maybe not. As it stands, I feel I’m doing my readers a disservice by forcing myself to post everyday whether or not there was something worth posting. But it is a lot of fun to look back and read fragments of thoughts preserved in writing here. I guess that’s why we keep journals.

Have you ever committed yourself to writing daily?

Feeling Blessed

Sometimes it takes the most random and tiniest of things to make me realise how beautifully blessed my life is. I am so thankful for these moments of complete and utter clarity. :)

Happy Monday

Yesterday I had problem falling asleep because I was too excited about today. I had not been performing at full capacity since last Tuesday (some relatives from overseas came to visit and after that I wasn’t feeling very well). Luckily, I am given a gift of another week to start all over. I woke up early today, cooked breakfast, cleaned the room, did the laundry and completed planning for the work week by 9 am. I’m feeling good today!

Happy, round elephant

May you have a happy Monday too! :)

Follow Your Instinct - Or Consider the Alternative

It is only by following your deepest instinct that you can lead a rich life,  and if you let your fear of consequence prevent you from following your deepest instinct, then your life will be safe, expedient and thin - Katharine Butler Hathaway

Have a glorious weekend! :)
