I Just Want To Write


The super stellar thing about having my own blog is that it’s mine to do with what I please. I really thought that having a writing schedule would be my answer to everything, making my blog exactly how I want it – but… It’s not; I was wrong.

Plans have changed.

I don’t want it to feel like an obligation. I miss writing to write. I’m an instant gratification kinda gal – I don’t want to have a blog post in my draft folder for 2 weeks…while it “waits its turn”.

I want to write, post & repeat.

If I see a daily prompt that I want to be involved in – I’m going to do it. If I feel like I want to crap & moan about something that’s obnoxious – I’ll do it. If I want to write about something going on in the news – I’ll do it. If I feel like writing a short story…yeah, you guessed it – I’ll do it.

 Who needs a schedule?

  1. Sometimes it takes a while. I started my blog and did like 6 posts and did short little ones for the rest of that month, then only did 6 one month. It should be about stuff you are interested in writing and your pattern comes along organically. I didn’t really get a decent following and pattern to mine for almost a year. Give yourself some time to get a groove, and enjoy what you are writing and it will come. Go Vikings!


  2. Totally feel the same way. Some days I wake up knowing I have something to say, other days I don’t even think about writing at all. The moment it starts feeling forced, I’ll probably hate it. I DON’T WANT TO HATE IT! It’s all I got sometimes, yo. Cheers to changing plans!


    1. EXACTLY!! That was it – last week I stuck to my schedule…and now this week it felt so forced and I started getting stressed out because I was LOOKING for things to write about rather than impulsively writing which is what I’ve been doing since February – it’s so much better. I don’t want to hate it either. Haha.
      Cheers! 🙂


  3. I’m completely behind you! Whatever you were doing before was working! You know, if it isn’t broke….. 🙂 I think maybe when we try to organize, schedule, and compartmentalize creativity, it can lose some of it’s unique spark. Creative genius seems to play by its own rules. 😀


    1. Ugh, Thank YOU. I never want it to feel like an obligation. The reason it became a passion to begin with was because of the expression behind it – to say what I want to say WHEN I want say it…….. Rules Shhmules. 🙂


  4. Loving your theme this week of letting go of forcing yourself one way when instinct is there gently guiding you another way. I am all for (or, at least working toward) doing more things that make me happy and *feel* right. A lot of good can come of that, methinks!


  5. Exactly how I feel word for word. I have been feeling a lot like this lately. I’m not sure if it’s because I just put too much pressure on myself and got overwhelmed or if I just need a break. Blogging is hard, but it doesn’t have to be!

    Thank you for the reminder.
