Start Writing Today

When the student is ready, the master will appear - source unknown.

Was pondering in the shower how we often overlook certain facts and information until we're ready to absorb the lesson we are meant to learn.

Like with writing. 

I took over 3 years to find a way to write consistently. 

At first, it was numbering the posts and forcing an entry everyday. I did that by drafting out an entry and editing the previous day's entry before publishing. 

I kept up with it until entry #39 where I just stopped writing altogether. 

Thinking I had such a long way to go before #100 was too daunting. 

8 months later, I picked up writing again.

I went through all 44 posts, including those unpublished to look at pieces of information I've learnt and forgotten.

Reading what I wrote was a humbling experience. 

If one person read what I wrote and took away something, I've achieved my objective of writing. 

In entry #4, I wrote "The next time someone asks me that question, I hope I'll be able to say, I spend my time reading, writing, listening to podcasts, being outdoors and sharing what I love with the community."

I'm glad I'm still doing the same thing today. 

If you're thinking of starting your own writing journey, please read entry #1.

Also, do drop me a comment, I'd love to hear from you.
