I realize it’s been almost two months since I’ve written anything here and i know the reason why. Well there’s not actually one reason beyond the fact that I have issues. Are they issues or problems? I’m not sure but here they are:
I struggle with consistency
Consistency is actually very important thing to me in my life. My morning routine varies very little every morning. I get up, I workout, I do language lessons, I have coffee and on the weekends I’ll also feed the dogs. I have to do these things every day or it gives me an “out” to stop doing them. As long as I keep it up – I’m good. When it comes to writing I’ve never developed that routine and have made it stick. I try as I have multiple projects that require writing but in the end the discipline isn’t there.
I internalize everything
This is probably more of an issue than anything. I have written numerous articles, poems, lyrics, books which have never made their way out of my own head. I also have many conversations with people you aren’t present at the time these conversations are happening. Don’t get me started on arguments – I’ve had more of those in my own head than I can count.
So what am I going to do about it?
Well I’m writing this as a start. I actually started writing in my head first but then grabbed my iPad and finished it by actually typing. Will it be the catalyst to create consistency in my writing? I guess we’ll find out.
