Quality or quantity?

I have been agonising for days over what topic to choose for my Q day.  I realise that a lot of you out there are much more organised and have outlined every days post from the beginning.  Unfortunately, I do not have that time on my side at the moment so I’m flying by the seat of my pants just a little bit.

So, this post is a continuation from my P post, which due to my falling behind schedule was also only published today.

Anyway it’s here now.  This two posts are quite nicely linked I think, going hand in hand together.  Being an impatient sort of person I always used to be a bit of a make-doer I suppose, getting something done enough for whatever the criteria is and then moving on to the next thing.  It’s a philosophy I’m very much trying to break in more than one aspect of my life at the moment.

I think writing is going to be the area that’s really going to help me make that breakthrough.  I really want to have something that I enjoy and that maybe I could be quite good at and that people will be interested in.  I know that if I apply myself properly and fully I’ll be able to achieve all that I want to, but to be honest a lot of the time I feel really very lazy.

I kind of get into a ‘what’s the point in even trying?’ state of mind and subsequently abandon whatever ideas I may have been nurturing.

So, instead of worrying about all of that other stuff I’m going to get on with just writing for me, hopefully writing for you (if you’re still here!) and anyone else that cares to listen.

  1. Thanks for sharing this :)

    I write fantasy and have been doing for many years. I've had the highs and lows and keep motivated is never easy.

    I always tried to make sure I did at least a little each day and set reasonable targets for myself. I believe the more you write, the better you get, and I'm confident the same will happen with you.

    Keep writing and as you say, make sure you're happy first and foremost, then worry about others.

    Good luck :)
