Happy Thursday Watchers!
For the last year or so I’ve been trying to establish a daily writing habit. This was driven by two goals:
- Become a better marketer
- Find creative work that makes me feel fulfilled
Outside of this newsletter it has been a struggle (and sometimes including this newsletter, let’s be honest).
But then a few weeks ago I made a small change to my habit. Suddenly writing every day feels incredibly easy. It went from being a chore that I had to accomplish to something I enjoy doing.
I started journaling instead of blogging.
Tons of people were suggesting this would be a good time to journal, if for no other reason than to document everything going on in the world. I already journaled sporadically, so I decided to make that my daily writing instead of blogging.
I love it. The lack of pressure is so freeing. I don’t have to worry about the writing being good enough, or long enough. I just write.
I’m hoping over time I can still parlay this into blog content somehow, but maybe not. Maybe this will just be a personal habit. I’ll let you know when I figure that out!
Cheers from Charleston ✌️
P.S. You’ll find a lot less corona-inspired content today. I’m starting to get tired of it, so figured it’s time to get back to normal categories (at least in part).
