Well kids, I already failed. I was aware of it the whole time too. I don’t know why I find it so hard to just sit down and write something. It really isn’t bad. Instead of giving up I am going to try to write two blog posts this week. I hope that will make amends! I don’t have any real place for these pictures so I am just going to spread them throughout this article with no rhyme or reason. They are just Purdue after a snow. It’s not record breaking snow and nothing really noteworthy about them save the snow.
So, I thought I would use this article to explain my blog process, since I can’t seem to settle on anything this week. Basically I have like a million things per day I would love to write about. For whatever reason I feel the need to flesh everything out and make it into a novel. It really doesn’t need to be and there probably would be a lot more content on here if I just wrote little mini posts more often. That’s kind what this resolution is about though, figuring out a more effective and efficient process.
Basically, my current procedure involves this:
- Think of an idea.
- Explore that idea.
- Get really excited about it.
- Record it in a place to be remembered later.
- Don’t look at it for weeks.
- Try to write the post.
- Write the opening sentence.
- Never write sentence two.
The really long blogs, the ones I actually like, are basically thought of and written within a very short time. I really need to cut down on the latency between thought and writing, it keeps things fresh. Well this was boring, but I will have a MUCH better blog hopefully tonight or tomorrow morning. It’s a music one!
