There are a lot of reasons why I blog so much less frequently these days. I'm busy, I wonder what anyone would want to read about, Facebook, I can't get motivated, etc. Whether it's a term paper or a book chapter or a letter or a blog post, the empty page is daunting.
Here's what occurred to me recently, though: Although I'm an author, I'm not really a writer. Know why? Because writers write.
So I've taken a challenge from my friend at www.lisaspence.com to blog for 21 days straight no matter what, to put words to paper every day for 21 days, to write something--anything--long enough to push through the resistance. If she can do it, I can do it, right?
It's actually very consistent with a tool that I've used many times in my life. The idea is that if you have a dream and you do something every day toward your dream, you really might see your dream come true. I can't even tell you how many times I've taken that on and how many times it has made the difference between good intentions and real results.
So . . . the next 21 days on wonderfullyflawed might be really inane. Who knows? That's not the point. I still ask myself a lot, though, "What would someone who shows up on this site want to read about?" So if you want to suggest a topic, I promise I'll take it on, one way or another. Otherwise, you'll probably be at the mercy of whatever I'm thinking about on any given day. Let's see what happens . . .
