The creative spark - a myth?
This is a really interesting experiment. I am now on day 23 of my 35-day blogging journey and here are some of the things I have learned so far.
- Don’t try to write when you’re tired. The ideas come a lot faster in the morning than at night.
- Every blog post doesn’t have to be a m a z i n g. If you’re creating something daily it’s not realistic to think they will be. Do your best each day.
- Not everyone wants to hear from you every day. Understandable!
- If you make a decision to do something and are committed to that decision, it’s usually possible to find a way to do it.
- Do it for yourself – if others come with you it’s a bonus, but if the reason you are doing it is to get likes/comments/positive feedback, it won’t last.
However, all that being said, to all those who have read what I have had to say, and to those who have liked my writing and commented on it – thankyou. I don’t always have time to respond to everyone but I appreciate you letting me know what you think of my musings each day. It is certainly easier to keep going when you know that people are reading.
Finally for today – if you are trying to create something, or indeed achieve something, keep trying. Like the child learning to walk, you will fall over and over again, but the best way to get better at something is by doing it. Try and try again.
Just like the old songwriting wisdom says – you have to write 50 bad songs before you write a good one.
Don’t wait for the spark to find you, instead turn up to work consistently and you will find it.
