For the month of September, I’m going to commit to writing a blog post everyday. This challenge is a great opportunity to enhance my writing skills. By the end of the month, it’s my goal to be able to effectively create readable articles.
I’m going to write about my interests in the most engaging way I can, however, I’m a little afraid that I’ll encounter writers block. Luckily, I recently got a copy of the book “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield. The book will guide me past resistances such as writers block, and the fear that comes with creating. In a future blog post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the ideas presented by the author.
30 days of blogging is a deep dive into my mental process. I’m going to figure out exactly how I work. Maybe I’ll conquer commitment issues as well. Now that I think about it, I can’t say I’ve ever truly committed to something like this. Like many others, I’ve created New Years resolutions and daily personal goals, but it’s always been a struggle to fulfill them. I want to overcome the self inflicted mental blocks that have prevented me from achieving personal goals such as learning a new language and working out every morning.
Can I figure out how to enter a flow state that enables me to channel my creative spirit into writing?
How will I overcome any resistance that I face?
The answers to these questions and many more will be answered throughout the month.
Writing for 30 days will do much more for me then help me achieve better writing skills. It’s going to push me to follow through with a commitment. This blog post will serve to be an inspiration for when I’m feeling stuck. This is the prose that proclaims my current feelings of determination, that I will carry with me in the coming days.
