Previous post was just an introduction to this challenge … to post every day.
This morning, I came across this post in my WordPress dashboard. Please, check out the link because it’s really cool. So far, I’ve blogged every morning anyway so I thought «why not?!». Instead of procrastinating, I signed up! I haven’t done very well in these types of daily challenges … think I started «a photo a day – 365» three times, without finishing. That is so NOT like me, I’m usually more tenacious than that.
My problem here is that I am (or have been) too eager to please others. All my life … that’s been my mantra, and now I’m trying hard to get over it. It could have been my downfall, and not unbridled enthusiasm like Billy Mumphrey. Seinfeld is one of my favorite TV-shows so there will be a lot of Seinfeldian expressions in this blog.
I can’t please everyone!
Now, this could easily turn into some sort of catharsis … think I”m prone to that. In the blog I linked to here above they had this experiment of «Free Writing». To write for, say, ten minutes, without worrying about grammar, punctuation or anything …. just to type what’s on top of your mind.
I did that … found the little timer on top of the box a little stressful, and noticed that I was going about it as if it was a typing contest. Unfortunately, when the time was up, a new window opened and I lost my writing … there was no way to use the back button as it said.
The idea is great, though and I’ll probably use it many times when my mind is blank in the morning. Mornings … that’s my time for blogging. This time, when I did the ‘free writing’, I felt a little tense but from here on, I’ll just have fun with it.
