I missed yesterday too, though I’m not blaming myself for that. I was home for a total of 3 hours yesterday. One of those went to lunch, one to sleeping, and one to getting ready to go out again. Even if I’d forced myself to sit in front of the computer and write, it’d have been terrible.
I’ve come to the conclusion that writing every single day is not a feasible goal for me at the moment. Certainly not for a 100 day period.
And I guess it was kind of silly to think that it would be. I mean, I went from writing once every few months to writing every day with no build up. It’s no wonder that I’m struggling to keep up the creative flow and motivation.
Also, the lack of leeway to miss the occasional day is no fun. I do seem to have a day every few weeks where I have multiple back-to-back functions and there’s no way to cram the writing in there.
And then I miss a day and that’s getting me used to skipping the writing, which is the exact opposite of what I’m meant to be doing.
So. New plan. I’m taking a few days to a week or two off from posting. Then I’ll start posting again. Posts will go up five days a week (Sunday to Thursday), but unlike at the moment, I’ll be writing them in advance. I’ll still be aiming to write most days, but this will give me the leeway to plan for excessively busy weekends (like this one). Also, I’ll be able to do some editing, which I’m increasingly keen to do.
