Can I just say how much I’m loving this little blog of mine?
My five minute, unedited, tiny little space for a few words a day.
Yes, it’s sometimes frustrating to “STOP”. I always, always want to go back and re-write and add in words and sentances and correct little mistakes. But, oh thre’s a but…
But I LOVE that I’m actually writing every day.
My life is so hectic right now that if I only ever wrote when I had time to write… it would be almost never. And yet five minutes a day? I can make that happen. (And somedays it actually feels like a stretch – ha!)
So even though i still want and need and crave for time to sit and write and edit and write putting more effort and thought into the creative process, the fact taht I’ve got this little blog means that I’m still writing in teh meantime. And I love that.
Sure, it’s beating out the perfectonist in me. (I still have a long way to go.) Sure, it’s teaching me to not waffle on and on and be more succinct. (Well, hopefully.) Sure, it’s forcing me to sit down and do something every day as a discipline and a creative outlet.
It’s all those things, those wonderful things.
But mostly? It’s becoming this precious place where I just clink out what’s on my mind. Sometimes deep and sometimes not. Incredibly theraputic. And such an amazign way to store up the little slices of life that might get buried or lost otherwise.
Funny taht some of my favorite writing has been here – banged out in just a few mnutes.
Of course it needs polishing and honing… but still, these little sessions have produced some treasures… in my opinion at least.
i think I may have stumbled into somethng that really is changing my life for the better. And I love it.
Q for you: Are you actively seeking a way that you can be creative in the midst of your busy schedule and responsibilities?
