The Probability of Continuity

The Probability of Continuity

After celebrating a month of daily blogging, just yesterday, I am now committing to blogging every day in December.

I know what you might be thinking -

Why, after complaining about being too busy to post everyday last month, would I submit myself to another month of torture?

Why, of all months, commit to the month that includes Christmas parties, Christmas and New Years Eve?

- and, lastly -

Just plain ol why?

My answer is really quite simple.

Blogging every day ensures that I stay committed to writing. That's very important to me. Participating in last month's blogging challenge helped me focus on my writing goals.

Before last month, I was journaling and throwing occasional darts at my novel but I wasn't moving forward. My commitment to writing, however, made it crystal clear that I needed help with my novel and hiring a writing coach was the best decision I could have made.

Blogging every day also forces me to practice my craft and it keeps the creative juices flowing.

Could I achieve all this without daily blogging? I don't know. What I do know is I'm growing as a writer. For years, I've compared what works for me to what works for others and, more times than not, I'm just different.

So, just like I recently decided to stop beating myself up because I'd rather write my novel longhand than type it, I'm going to opt out of questioning why daily blogging has rejuvenated my desire to recommit to my novel.

Today, longhand and daily blogging works...I'm okay with that.

We can talk about what works for the new year when we get there.

Less Than Half is Talent

Today I heard a radio interview where Guthrie P. Ramsey Jr., Professor of Music at the University of Pennsylvania, shared all the details of what made Whitney Houston's voice "the voice". Longing to sing professionally myself, I hung on to his every word. Later, as I compared his professional views with my experience as a singer, I found a universal truth invaluable not only from the standpoint of singing but in any area where one would hope to transition talent to a sought after skill.   Read more >

Your Goals Are As Important As Your Qualifications

After obtaining my A+ certification I, like all my other classmates, flooded the internet with resumes touting our qualifications.  As forewarned by the instructor, the first job I was offered had little to do with my brand new certification and it paid much less than I expected but, as a newly divorced single mom, I had little room to complain. Around the 6 month mark, also foreseen by my instructor, the employment fish began to bite and before long I was sitting in an interview with an opportunity to make more money than I'd ever had.   Read more >

Confession: I Really Don't Need More Hours In A Day

I'm embarrassed to even murmur about there not being enough hours in a day when there are working women with children that not only get themselves ready for work but feed/dress their kids, knock out a few household chores and drop the kids off at daycare/school before they arrive at work. I find myself to be a complete liar when I say I don't have time to exercise when it's not uncommon for me to see a coworker jogging during their lunch hour while I, on the other hand, use that time to eat.   Read more >
