I have noticed a pattern in writing posts for my blog….. I get little to no writing done in the month of July. With the exception of the year I started writing my blog, I am very lackadaisical in my writing during the month of July. In fact, when I am not at my day job, I rarely turn on my computer at home.
As I am known to do, I began to ponder about what happens during the month of July that hinders my creative writing. I have many theories about this. I keep coming back to the thought that there is a lot going on during July: National celebrations, family celebrations, vacations, good weather, gardening, hiking, camping and much more. The time truly gets away from me during this month.
As a goal oriented individual this causes me angst. I like to reach my goals. And because I set a goal for myself to have a new post on my blog once a week the month of July causes me stress. I am also not reading or commenting on other blogs posted by my blog friends. (I literally did not turn on my personal computer when I was at home for the entire month.) I have a lot of catching up to do.
My solution for the future is to not pressure myself to write during the month of July. Instead I will continue to follow the blogs of my friends and commenting on their writing. If I get something written and posted, that is wonderful, but I will not put so much pressure on myself.
So please bear with me as I catch up reading posts, making and answering comments. And I hope to have several new posts in the up coming weeks. Thanks for your patience and continued support.
