Writing Challenges – July

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.

  4. Everything in nature ebbs and flows, waxes and wanes. Only we humans think we need to be productive all the time. Give yourself a break, Jill! 🙂

    Agreeing with Tanja 100% we don’t need to do all the time, rest creates just as much if not more.
