I want to be a writer. That’s kind of a scary statement for me to say out loud. I would prefer to say I write as a hobby, when I have time. Which is currently mostly true. But if I was to be completely true I would say that writing has always been something I loved, and being a real writer has always been a dream of mine.
And yet I find it hard to bring myself to sit down and actually write. I have ideas. I have words come into my mind. But because of everything else that fills my life on a daily basis, and maybe a lack of self-motivations and discipline, I find myself with a fairly empty blog. (Which I started after two years of thinking about it.)
I do, however, excel at reading blogs. A new favorite has become The Nester – an endearing, home-decor focused blog written by Myquillyn Smith. And to my delight I discovered a 31 day challenge she hosts for fellow bloggers to simply write something every day in October. Though I’m not sure I’ll post anything significant, I know that simply getting in the habit to sit down and write will be a good way to combat the hundreds of excuses I have created up to this point.
