As I wrote last week, I wanted to end up at one place, where I knew what I could write about weeks ahead. I am not there yet. Will I ever be? I really like the moleskin notebooks, very nice quality. My first journal was a moleskin, as was the second (the current one). They are nice and linear, but I wanted to try something different.
I’ve bought a day to a page A5 diary. A4 would be too big and Filofax too small. The diary gives me a little more space, and being a diary there is a degree of inherent organisation. I was sad to make the decision to stop using the journal, but I wanted to give it a go for a year – just to see if it works. The experiment is ongoing.
I wonder if you have been following my writing? Over this last week, I have written with ease each night. I’m not saying what I’ve written is good, just that it hasn’t been too hard to write. It’s ironic then isn’t it, that only with tonight’s task of writing about writing, is when I should encounter writers block. The solution is to write about the block. Try to analyse the cause. Tonight’s analysis isn’t being very successful. I am thinking about what I’ve written over the last week. I haven’t made any note about what I’ve written, but I do know the topic for each day. I just haven’t reviewed the last weeks efforts in the context of tonight’s exercise. I had the thought that perhaps I need a theme sometimes. But I need it to not be too specific. Perhaps this is where, every so often I need to remind myself of my Locality Project (think about the name of the blog locality stories.com.
Really sorry, tonight’s post is a little bit waffle. I need to try and think about this.
