Writing Rebirth

I think I need to get better at writing.

I need to make it a priority. And I think that means I need to plan. But planning takes time and discipline, and right now I don't feel like I have an excess of either of those to fuel my thoughts of penning (or typing) more about my life.

However, today is a great day to start writing. Today, my friends, is June first. First's are new and clean, they are usually untouched and full of optimism. I've got a clean slate, the reset button has been pressed, I've just eaten a new mushroom in Mario and booya, I've got another life and I can last longer.

Would it be crazy of me to try to post a blog post every day this month? Could I stick with it? Am I going to fail after day two like my last attempt and just get discouraged again?

Maybe if I'm less particular about it. Maybe if I just WRITE, instead of being dissatisfied and putting myself down for not writing something stellar, I just share what I'm thinking, and tell you what I'm doing.

Is that simplicity really worth writing? And more importantly...is it truly worth reading?

It would take planning. I'd have to make time everyday. I did it for a few weeks back when I tried that whole 750 words thing. (We both failed, by the way. It was a good thing we stopped though because it was making us a bit irritated with each other for appearing to make writing more important than spending time together.) So I know it's possible to write every day.

I've learned about ProBlogger's 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, and I might start looking into that, because I want more purpose to my writing. I want to make an impact, and they have tips to get your words out there. But I know I won't always stick to those rules.

Plus, June means summer, and summer is busy, but not as busy as the school year. So maybe it'll be easier for me!


What about you? What are you going to change in your life this month?

I'm vlogging every day. MrsThesaurus is the name.
I tried texting you, right now I'm available to write with you. Or we could meet at Waterstreet tomorrow morning. Or Saturday morning. I think we should come up with a topic each time we meet and then write our own viewpoints/thoughts on it.
For example, "Why I love Pixar" or expanding on the dream we had the night before or writing a poem about a place we've been. Are you into poetry at all?
