When Too Many Ideas Makes It Hard: Day 3 of #31WriteNow
It’s the third day of the #31WriteNow challenge and I love it so far. I’ve discovered so many new and awesome blogs by just clicking on the hashtag in Twitter and seeing where it leads me.
Day 3 is upon us and I’m just putting in my post at 8pm. And it’s about the process. Cheat? Nah. I didn’t say you couldn’t write about writing in this challenge. My problem with posting today was deciding WHAT to post on. I have 230 drafts sitting in my WordPress dashboard. Some are just one sentence and others are basically done but I could not figure out what to press “publish” on.
I even started a NEW post and wrote over 570 words for it but I decided I didn’t want to have it go up today. Look at my life and look at my choices.
When writing in general, we do let things like this cripple us sometimes. Having too many ideas can sometimes be worse than having none. That’s why.
Also, I have certain ideas of posts I like to put up on weekends as opposed to weekday ones. And I admit that the post I started working in felt like “Monday.” So when the week kicks off, I already have 3 posts lined up.
How is day 3 going for you? Found any new blogs because of this challenge?
