I have been a little disinterested in writing my blog lately. Disinterested in gardening too (it never stops raining!) and I have some new crafty projects on the way. I am also packing up for a 4 week trip to see my daughters in the US. So exciting.
I have been wondering if my blog should also have some crafty posts. I have been wondering if I should put recipes in here. No, I wanted a gardening post, I tell myself. Wait a minute who wrote the rules here.... right!
I have also been thinking my blog is so uninteresting, other peoples blogs are so well written and entertaining. so from all this introspection came a writing course - an online writing course, so I signed up. Not great timing as I will be travelling and am very busy right now, but I realise this is my trend, I get overwhelmed too easily and then give up, so maybe this should be something I should be working on rather than shoving it under the mat again.
Now I see the first lesson has been posted, OOps I had a busy weekend (not writing), so I guess one of my first goals must surely be
1. to be committed and do something every day. I tend to hit something new running full force and then slowly dwindle back into boredom. I think I need this structure.
2. I have only written non-fiction and would like to try my hand at different genres as well.
3. I need to see this thing to the end, otherwise it will just be yet another unfiinished project. I see the trend here.
I rushed through this post more than I would have liked, but I promise myself I will do better from now on.....
turning the corner.... right now.
