Don’t write about blogging.
The only people who really care about blogging are bloggers themselves.
Well, I'm going to do it anyway.
Why? Because it shouldn't be a secret. Yes, I'm trying to improve this blog, and there are lots of other bloggers who want to do the same. There are maybe even other writer-bloggers who struggle with balancing the book-writing and the blog-writing. So I'm going to share it all...
This is what I've discovered after doing the first 5 days of the Challenge :
It is very hard to work on the blog and keep up the regular work-in-progress.
I sympathize with the comment left by Ronnica on a recent post. I still think everything we do, creatively, counts, but the boundaries seem to be always shifting.... I have to be very firm with myself. It's so easy for something -- almost anything -- else to wiggle between me and the writing. I don't know why this should be the case, how even the minutest household task can
become so appealing. Is this merely procrastination again, in one of it's trickier forms? It is some sort of resistance, I am sure.... (And I've just found two interesting descriptions of resistance, and ideas for dealing with it, here and here. These are in the context of meditation but it's the same old resistance.)
The challenges have been great each day and I'm learning a lot. It's even exciting! But the biggest thing I've learned so far is, I've still got to pay attention to, and remain conscious of, my priorities.
