This is a post about what could happen and what I’m not going to let happen.
I post instead of working on longer creative pieces.
I write a post for my audience not for me or for the story.
I post often, not for practice, for views and likes and follows.
Creative behemoths lie untouched while I write something dry for public consumption.
I don’t love the writing I’m posting.
I don’t let a piece sit with me and mellow and ripen and get better, I rush it.
In order to avoid getting blogged down…yea I went there…I’m going to set goals for this blog. Maybe I should have done this sooner?
#1. Write about writing. Cuz I’m meta like that and because these are the pages I currently need to process.
#2. Write about other things besides writing so this all doesn’t get too self absorbed and whiny.
3. Share the NEW pieces I am going to create, (off blog.)
4. Use the blog to generate pieces I wouldn’t have done with out it. For instance, through participating in challenges and responding to prompts.
5. I am going to limit the amount I post to three times a week. This way, I hope to create better quality pieces. I fear not posting nearly every day will take my stats down, but so be it. Quality over quantity.
