Recently I have started the 500 words a day challenge. I started this to force me to create and dump my thoughts. This is designed to be empowering and force the creative juices flowing. Since I have started I have put in a lot of quick work on this blog, but even more, work has been put into other things.
The main thing has been my journal. I now take time to write in my journal every day, mostly at the end, to self-reflect. This has allowed me to find areas that I have fallen short in productive and personal relationships and take steps to fix those.
The area that has not gotten enough attention from my part is my movie. I really want to finish writing this. Not because I think a studio will ever make it, but I just NEED to finish it. I need to find a little more time to work on this more as time goes on.
Recently, with the relaunch of this blog, I have decided to start writing at minimum 500 words a day. My thought was that this would become more natural over time and lead to me knocking out posts much quicker. I read this someplace online and it seemed like a good challenge. Given the fact in order to meet the goal you must write.
Writing in and of itself has always been a friction point for me. I think this is due to me not feeling I am very good at it and I suck at spelling. Accepting this challenge means that I will have to ignore all of that and just write. And Just writing is the point. I will not be able to duck out of it or give myself an excuse. I will just write.
However, I don’t need these all to be in a blog post. Sometimes it might be beneficial to write in my personal journal. Others, in my movie script. In the end of the day I will have written, got my thoughts on paper and made the world a better place… OK well maybe that last part was a bit of hyperbole, You get the point.
So here is to me just getting off my butt and writing. I am not claiming I will be perfect here, but I will just write. This should be an interesting journey for both of us. Me because I will be forcing myself to write and you because you will never know what will come out of my mouth next.
What will I write about? Well it reality it could be just about anything. I might work on my script and finally get this dang movie finished. I might write in my long neglected journal. I could fill the blog with post that are nothing more than drivel. You know kinda like this one. In reality it will likely be a mixture of things. So sit back and enjoy.
