I challenged myself to write daily this year of 2015. The problem with this assignment is knowing if what I type into this box is actually moving me forward or treading water.
While exercising I caught myself easily forgiving myself for bad form by thinking, “Well, at least I’m here and doing it.” Am I slacking or excused due to lack of energy?
When do you know you have hit your edge in terms of writing, exercise, and balancing it all with work to pay the bills and life?
I decided to seek out words from athletes who have competed in extreme physical challenges. They all agreed that the brain wants to quit well before the body is ready to give out.
I certainly have not been working at anything until my body collapses. I could become an extreme writer. It would be a boring sport to watch on television. The end of the show I would be drooling on my keyboard, the imprints of buttons on my forehead. My fingers would be bloody and disfigured from typing. This digression is getting ugly.
Is it better to write daily and post something not written to the best of my ability? Or better to post less and focus on getting it to a next level? How long would that take? Does writing daily and posting anything get me to my next level?
This post may not have value for anyone other than myself. Isn’t that what I’m supposed to give you people? Value? Right now I’m thinking it through. Maybe you have similar quandaries?
