I decided with the new year, I’d start blogging more regularly. Seems easy, right? A few words on the blog every day and a routine. Easy? I’m not trying to get out of my resolution to blog. Nope. I’m not. But I’m the kind of person who needs a routine.
Sounds odd, doesn’t it? I just blogged yesterday (the other day? I’m not sure) about how I don’t have a routine for writing. I don’t. I have general times I try to write and times I tend to get words down, but it doesn’t always work out the way I want.
Then what’s so different about the blogging thing? I had a plan, you see. I’d get up when I have to with the tot, do the EDJ stuff, then write the blog. If I got lucky and got the blog done the night before, then great. If not, then I’ve got the time in the morning to do it. Easy. Notice I keep saying it’s easy? It’s one of my mantras to get this ball rolling.
It’s not easy, though. January brings all sorts of curve balls. First, the other holidays. I love MLK Day and I’m glad we celebrate it, but it’s heck on the schedule. Still, I’m not complaining. What I don’t always like…the snow days. I love snow. It’s pretty to look at, but it’s not fun to drive in. I’m okay with taking days off because the weather is horrible. I get it. But it’s murder on the schedule and routine. I know what I have to do, but the temptation to go back to bed, to be lazy and not get anything done is so great. Can you tell sometimes I have no willpower, too? Hehehehe.
But I’m trying. I gave myself last week off sort of to get into a routine. Psyche myself up kind of thing. So far, this week has been promising. I might even get a Saturday post in and a cover reveal on Sunday. Hey, it’s been known to happen.
What about you? Are you a schedule kind of person or the type that lets things happen the way they do? Maybe you’ve got tips for keeping the schedule I could use. Or you’ve got photos of hot guys for inspiration. Grin.
