Wednesday Workshop: Short and sour

So, yeah, I have promised to reciprocate sharing my writing projects where I need help.

In fact, one of my key problems is that I promise too much (mostly to myself, that’s another probably related problem I have). Consequently I generate vast amounts of text (just check this site or check the thousands of words produced on this site) which I never bother to review because I’m always more interested in clearing the next promise. One of the reasons is, I guess, that typically there are no reviewers. It’s like knowing you stay at home and knowing nobody come to ring your doorbell; you don’t bother.

So I’m sorry I don’t have more than this at this point in time (I promise to be more content rich another time) but the ask is this: how can I force myself to do the polite thing and dress up when I am going out with some writing?

  1. My best success at writing consistently has been when I treat it like a task that can’t be pre-empted. I’ve done it where I wrote at the same time every day, and others where I treated it like a class – working certain blocks of time of the week. When I break the habit, my habit starts to slide.

  2. I think you are right Matt, and as I cannot afford the habit at this point in time I’ll just have to kick it.

  3. I have the bad habit of seeing articles like that and thinking, “Oh great! There goes that idea!” when of course, there are probably very few ideas which are completely original.
