December 2 Writing.
What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?
(Author: Leo Babauta)
I change my writing voice when I start/stop writing each day. My best writing comes when it’s straight from my train of thought and fresh in my mind. I know where I want to go, where I need to go, and the story I want to tell. If I start/stop writing, my words loose my voice. They just become an AP wire about what I wanted to say and not the heart-filled message I wanted to send out into the universe.
In order to stop, I need to give myself some uninterrupted blogging time. I need to provide 10-15 minutes where I write and that’s all I do. I don’t insert/edit photos. I’m not distracted by Twitter or e-mail. I’m just spitting out the words through the keyboard and then I can get back to all of those other things that sidetrack my thoughts.
I’m going to be better about saving a little piece of time to be in “my zone” and I think it will be beneficial to me and my blogging. Because if I’m only able to share a small portion of what I want to share, I’m sort of failing at my objective in the first place.
