perils with writing and whatnot
Suzanne at It Goes On, started a project the last part of November called Life Makeover. I decided to join her in this project, but I did wonder how it would go during the weeks of the coming holidays of December and January. As suspected, the project had to be put on hold.
Suzanne came back to this project this last Thursday with a post about keeping a personal journal. Like her, I used to keep a journal/diary when I was a kid. Back then it was one of the popular things to do. Albeit, I wasn’t persistent about writing in it. It became my complaining book when I was angry at one of my parents, was upset about how I was treated by a boyfriend, or wanted to speak out about the injustice in the country at the time.
Life gets real busy as an adult. I found that I didn’t even think about writing down personal feeling, concerns, or triumphs. However, since I’ve had a blog/journal on the Internet, I’ve wondered if I should start this habit of personal journaling again.
What’s strange is I started keeping a private blog online right after I started following Suzanne with the Life Makeover project. She didn’t write anything in her blog until last week about keeping a journal. In this particular case, it’s just coincident that I started my journal last month. There was some issues I needed to air before they gobbled me up whole.
Nevertheless, my time with this journal has been a weekly event. Now with this project, if I’m going to let it try to do me any good, I need to push this activity up to a daily habit. As with most things I want to do that are good for me, saying it is so much easier than doing it. I’m glad that I took heed to the third assignment for this endeavor, learning how to schedule daily life without it getting too rigid. I already have myself scheduled for writing during the workweek. I just need to add some time and extend it into the weekends.
The next step will be to figure out what to write about every day. Last Friday I read a post in the blog, Today’s Author that gave me the answer to this annoying question. Initially, what it said was there are always things to write about. You just have to know how to look for them. Of course, I always had known this but still, someone needed to point it out to me. Oblivion is bliss, right?
