You know, trying to stay up to date with the blog, trying to write an entry every single day, is a little more difficult than I anticipated but not for the reason some might think.
Here I am sitting down at my desk, writing this, unsure what I’m going to blog about today, but not really worrying about it. If I find a good story like my seventh-grade basket star post, then awesome. If not, oh well, I’ll try again tomorrow.
But the thing that’s been frustrating and difficult is actually remembering to write these things. I’ll completely forget like I did two days ago (again). Then, the following day I’ll remember that I didn’t blog and tell myself, “Self! You need to put write blog entry today. Don’t forget!” And I forget! Again!!!
Anyway, here’s to the tenth day of what should’ve been fourteen days of blog posts, but I missed a total of four days now because I forgot. I’m not beating myself up about it. It’s my blog, I’ll write it if I want to. It’s not like anyone is reading these things anyway.
On a much brighter note, I’ve finally focused on the story I’m writing. I like to dabble in a bunch of stories and I tell myself it’s so I don’t get bored, but if I focus on one story at a time, I can get it done a lot quicker. So that’s what I’m doing. Today I wrote 1700+ words to kick off this sci-fi book I’m tentatively calling Space Mechanic. The high concept of it is Die Hard in Space. Yeah, I think it’s gonna be a good one.
Anyway, see you tomorrow.
(If I remember.)
