It is 2.23pm in the afternoon and I am trying to write a blog post. Nothing is going right. The light is wrong. The house is noisy. The television is on. The sun is shining… All of my difficulties stem from one basic problem: it’s not 10.15pm.
I am a creature of habit. I write my blog posts at the same time each day (see above). When my day has happened and I have plethora of tiny details to mull over. At 2.24pm, I feel… unfinished. The day is only half done. Who knows what might happen between now and posting time? Some fabulous event may occur and a blog post would appear, fully formed, in my mind. Instead, I must eke one out while the sun hurts my eyes.
It is for this reason that I cannot write my posts in batches. I know people who do this. They do it very well. But it simply doesn’t work for me. It’s like I need 24 hours of rumination to come up with one blog idea. I’m not sure what this says about me. Mostly that I’m not very organised and am always writing my posts at the last minute.
It is 2.26pm. Did you see how I did that? A whole blog post about nothing. Call me Jerry Seinfeld.
Do you write at the same time every day? Are you a clever clogs batch writer? How do you manage this blogging business?
