Okay, so this post is way later than I wanted it to be, because most of the day I’ve been feeling ill. On days like this, I get knocked out of my usual routine. Worse, they feel completely unproductive and soul-crushing. Well, maybe not soul-crushing, but something close to it.
Having a routine for writing has been crucial for me. Even on days where I don’t feel like writing, I end up doing some. It’s because there will be those times where I just feel out of place for not pecking away at my keyboard. I’ve found it can also help me out with mild forms of writer’s block.
What I haven’t done is set up a full routine for blog writing. This is probably why I don’t update when I’d like. When I work on my fiction, the whole process is graceful and elegant. Right now my blogging efforts feel a bit clunky. The writing I do here is not something I review as meticulously as my other work, and I do find errors when I go back and look through old posts. Every bone in my body wants to edit, but I have to ignore them bones and go back to my other routines.
If you have a routine, I sincerely hope it works well for you in whatever projects you do. If you have any tips or tricks for the rest of us (me for now), drop them in the comments section!
