Struggling to Write

Why am I mad? Well, today I decided to get back on the horse and start writing again. But I started with a really unrealistic article to write. I'm trying to punch above my weight class and just getting my ass kicked. I should just be trying to get the wheels going and do a little research for this post along the way.

So I tried to switch gears and write a different post but I think my patience was just gone at that point.

The real problem is that I haven't been keeping to my goal to write everyday. I've been out of practice for almost a month. I have almost nothing written for the last month. Fundamentally the lack of a habit and not making the time to write each day is what's been holding my back.

On the positive side, I found a good book that is already helping improve my writing and I think I have a plan.

So here's my plan

  • Write everyday; with the goal of 500 words
  • Read Writing Tools and do the workshop lessons at the end of the chapter; Rinse and repeat.
  • Write an outline before I write each post
