I am simply dreadful at keeping a daily blog!
Seriously though, the amount of times I've tried to start a blog or a journal or something with the promise that I will write in or on it every day is staggering. I think I finally figured out the secret though, and that is to tell yourself you'll write in it everyday, but don't sweat it too much if you miss a day here or there. It's not the end of the world.
I'm in a mood that's a little bit counter intuitive to blogging though. I have a couple things that happened to me recently that I could talk about, but I really don't feel like I can be bothered right now to do it. Maybe I'll just give forcing it a shot and see if something starts to come naturally.
I'm heading back to work tomorrow. I feel like I was supposed to get a lot more done on these days off than I actually did. Don't get me wrong, it was great to head down south and visit some family, but it didn't really feel super productive. I thought I would be able to pre-write two or three blog posts each night and set up a huge backlog. Well, the fact that you haven't heard from me in four days should show how great of a success that was. I also got literally no work done on my book, didn't write any short stories, and barely wrote anything for ITP. All in all, from a writing perspective, it was a pretty shite weekend.
But like I said, visiting with my mom was nice. Although, and I'm not sure how this happened, I actually ended up gaining weight when I got back. Mom, since I know you're reading this, clearly we pigged out too much when watching Jessica Jones (which I finished. It was fantastic). All the walking and moving around I did down south and I came back 6 pounds heavier than I was when I left. Weight loss sucks man, it's hard, and I hate it.
I don't know what it is, I just can't really seem to get into writing tonight. I've barely written anything here and what I have is sparse, unorganized paragraphs that barely contain any information. So, sorry for the horrible post I guess, I wish I was more reliable and organized. Hopefully in the future things will be different. I guess I'll see how well I can keep up now that I'm back on shift, and on my next days off it'll be time to sit down with a calendar and bang out a schedule. I've never been very good at sticking to schedules in the past, but I also wasn't very good at being a responsible adult in the past either, so something on that front clearly has to change. Wish me luck, I'm going to work on getting my shit straightened out. I'll report back.
