One of my routines for the past week is spending a good couple of hours on my laptop reading and writing stuff before I go to bed. This all started with my change in daily routine, where I begin the day late and stretch it late. Mornings never allowed me a good couple of hours for anything. At night, I feel in control.
Knowing that I will spend time writing during the night, a task right at the end of the day also frees me from feeling burdened in the morning. Otherwise, I felt I had to get words in before the grind began, or I would ruin my chance.
Sure, #writing to a writer shouldn’t feel like a burden. But with my recent slump, the only way I knew was to push myself to get at least 100 words in every day. On anything and everything. I have been doing that for the last few days, mainly looking inwards. In a way, these are all my journal posts.
My growing liking for the write.as platform was timely too. I haven’t announced this blog’s feed to other known places. I don’t share these posts at all. No crossposting either. These thoughts aren’t open to comments in any way.
Would you write more (+freely) if you know no one is reading?
I had quipped recently. If these past couple of weeks are anything to go by, it’s true for me, at least.
Will I never publicise this feed? Or share any of these posts? No idea. But if I do or someone stumbles across this place and follows the feed, I am happy to gain a reader organically. After all, who doesn’t like his words being read?
