When I first started this blog, it was my intention to chronicle my creative process through my master’s program at Goddard College and throw in some writing tips and creative work along the way. I think I started out pretty well, but I lost steam when I look my LOA and then when I came back for my third semester, life was insane. I had just moved across the country, I was making up for a huge chunk I should have finished in G2, then I had all the G3 work to do, so I suppose I could have made time had I been really dedicated to it and had I had the routine down, but I didn’t, so I didn’t. So now, now that I am nearly done with my program and ready to step out into the world as a Writer, I’ve decided it’s time that I take the blog more seriously. I know I don’t have many/any readers right now, but it will be good for self-promotion to have something going already when I’m finally ready to publish and I want it to be a habit.
And speaking of habits, my sister recently introduced me to Habitica. It’s magical. For real, it’s an online game where you get points for adulting. How cool is that? So I joined up a couple of days ago and you set goals for yourself: regular daily things and other periodic things, good habits you want to develop over time, and a to-do list for onetime or irregular projects. So I got myself started with some basic stuff and some bigger projects I want to work towards, and one of the regular things I want to build into my routine is keeping up with the blog. So, for now, I have it set that I have to write in the blog every Friday and we’ll see how it works. With that in mind and now that the semester is coming to a close, I’m not sure what I’m going to write about, so it may be a lot of random things. I do want to have regular writing tips, just a way to share things I’ve learned and I want to keep up with the quotes, because I like quotes. Otherwise, who knows what will happen. I may end up with the kind of weird ideas that come up during NaNoWriMo because I’m forcing myself to write.
In any case, if there’s anyone out there who would like a post on a specific topic, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
Thanks for listening and stay tuned!
