Practice Every Day

I've started three separate updates tonight. They all seemed brilliant at first but quickly drifted a little south of mediocrity.
There's a game your mind plays with you when you're tired mentally or physically. It will tell you -- hey, why bother, no one reads this crap anyway. Who cares if you skate tonight? It would be easy just to knock out something mindless, or simply skip writing for a night.
I don't know about you, but if I started skipping nights, I'd soon be skipping weeks, and months. Next thing you know I'd spend each night munching Lorna Doone cookies in front of the TV and watching Dancing with Desperate Housewives.
I'm not saying that every post has to be earth shattering, but I do think every post should say something about me.
I know in the scheme of things, I'm still a novice when it comes to writing, but it's something I know in my heart, that I could get good at one day. And the way you get good at anything, is to practice every day.
So tonight I'm here, writing even though I'm tired and I'd rather be doing something mindless.
Y'all have a blessed weekend.

    theres a whole lot of truth in that,

  2. I know I watch for your post/conversation every evening. Thanks yet again.
    - Joy

  3. I sort of loved the visual of the Lorna Doones and the Desperate Housewives!

  4. I would miss your thoughts and wisdom and humor! I loved your Thanksgiving post, you hit everything that is so important in life. Service is the key to true happiness. I think it's great to bring food and happiness to people and you even went out of your way to seek the ones that couldn't make it in themselves. Have a great weekend!

    Sometimes it can be hard to write, especially when your brain is playing tricks with you. Glad to see you have the determination to overcome.

  6. Even when you think you haven't written very much, you always manage to slip a truth in there somewhere :-)

  7. Sticking to a blogging schedule works beautifully! It doesn't have to be daily - it just has to work with your life's realities and is not, no way Jose, a priority! Well I think so anyway! Blogging for me is a fun outlet not a chore. Take care

  8. I couldn't agree more. It's so easy to get out of the habit via procrastination. But you're better than I am - the most I can bang out in a week is a couple of posts. But I love that you're an every day post-er - I look forward to reading each one. Happy Holidays!

  9. You're right. "Practice makes perfect" .

  10. I write so quickly that I still have time for Dancing With Desperate Housewives. It's my favorite.
