Writing Everyday Kind of Sucks

I’m currently challenging myself to write on Medium for 30 days straight. This is day 6. Why am I️ doing this?

Before this challenge, my typical writing regime had little structure. I️ don’t write professionally. I️ don’t have any concrete obligations in regards to writing, either. I️ do have a blog, but I️ give myself a week to post something new and it’s completely recreational.

Less Confident

I’m now streamlining my writing process. I’m spending maybe 1/10th of the time on these pieces. Granted, they’re a lot shorter and essentially spurts of content. But, it’s leaving me less satisfied.

Leaving meat on the table

These posts are different! I️ don’t like knowing I️ can do better if I️ put in more time; if I️ expanded on the topic. I️ want to give my readers the best.

Running low on inspiration

“Don’t feel like writing?” Write.

Stick it out

By no means is this a white flag. No way I’m giving up. I’m just taking the time to vent my frustrations. This challenge has been nice in the sense that I️ can say how I️ feel and move on. (Yes, I️ know on day 1 I️ said I️ didn’t want it to come to that)

Bored, uneducated, homeless — em dashes are my specialty. I write what I see, think, and feel. That’s it.
