It is quite likely that over the next 63 days you are going to get fed up with me. That’s because I am probably be going to be doing a fair bit of self analysis of my writing between now and then, and what I may be dong when 366 comes to an end. Since starting I knew there would be two directions in which I could go; to give up because I am not enjoying it. Or to continue with a blog, whatever shape it is..
I think it is fair to say, that if I was going to find it difficult I would have done so by now. I don’t include the odd episode of writers block in that, I mean a fundamental difficulty in writing. I am enjoying it too much. All this indicates to me that I am very likely to carry on. I need to work out the end date – looks like around the 20th of August.
If you read last nights post on meteorology, you’ll have noticed I’ve started asking questions of myself. I acknowledge I have an interest in this and other topics. I am not an expert in any of them, I won’t even pretend to think I know stuff, but I’m interested, my brain won’t let me not be interested, and that being the case, I want to write about it.
I need to look at the questions I asked last night. Do the questions form a principle that apply to all the topics I want to write about. I need to be careful that I don’t get to formal about this.. I want to have the freedom to write how I want, about what I want. But sometimes within that, there really should be a structure to some of my topics. You see, here is another good example of the way my brain works. I like to formalise, plan, put structure to things. I’m doing it again. But, I think I may have to do some of that if I want a successful blog (bearing in mind, I have not yet defined success).
