Sunday Again!

Sun-day.  It was actually even sunny for a while to fit the name.  You might note by my talk about the weather that I don't have much to say for my ROW80 check-in.

I guess that's not actually true.  I'm doing lots of reading and journaling for my coaching course, and I am loving it so much!  And while doing all of that, I realized that I've somehow built up this big, angsty wall around my writing.  On some levels I think I just let it get too important to me.  It got too weighty.  I became too afraid that I wasn't any good at it, and the more I thought that the less I managed to write.

For now I'm just focusing on regularly putting words on paper.  I'll worry about stories later, when writing and I get to know each other again and become good and happy friends again.  I'm not even going to do three pages a day.  One page, one side.  That's enough.  And it probably won't be every day, just more days than not.  For now, I'm just going to court the words and get back in the swing of things.

That's it for now.  I'll check in on some blogs tomorrow--it's just a little too late tonight.  Thanks for all the nice comments on my post about not doing a check-in on Wednesday.  See you all on leap day!

That sounds like a great plan. I've been feeling 'antsy' about my writing for the same reasons as you - self doubt can be crippling. But I'v been back on form a little today after a few weeks of nothing. Good luck X
