I have to come clean.
Daily blogging is hard, really hard.
I’ve questioned myself so many times regarding different things since I’ve started this personal challenge.
1. Schedules are Important
Waiting until everyone is fast asleep before I do my post every night isn’t cutting it. Theoretically, it makes sense since sleep has found the children. However, I’m not at my creative best, and it’s much harder to create my best content when I’d rather be asleep. I have to tighten my daily schedule and place blogging/writing much earlier. Maybe it’ll be done during their naptimes if I’m not napping as well.
2. Read More Books
I’m daily reading my Bible, but rarely am I reading anything that is considered creative writing. As I take moments to reflect, I feel my best as a writer when I’m reading more literature, especially books that encourage me to use my imagination. I have some books on my bookshelf right now that I could get the ball rolling.
3. Stay Hydrated
I live in the south, where the heat during the summer makes one constantly keep an eye on their salvation. Also, the fight to stay hydrated is real because sometimes it gets tiresome drinking water all day long—yet, when my thirst is satisfied, my thinking is sharper, and I can see the stories waiting for me to write.
Thanks for giving me the space to share the beauty and the struggle of my journey to consistency. This isn’t easy, but I hope my choice to show up daily and be transparent will help at least one of you to do the same in your way.
