For the love of Spreadsheets

How I used Google docs and spreadsheets to lose 20 pounds (give or take a few) and get into the habit of writing.

NaNo or Bust?

When NaNoWriMo is almost half over and you're 10% done, is it hopeless? Or was it a completely foolish endevor from the start?

Known for what?

Do people ever get known for doing a billion little things? Jack of all Internet moderate fame?

To Focus or Not?

My problem isn't writer's block per se. It's writer's focus. So what do I do? Write the correct topic in crap form or meader brilliantly over several plots, doomed to never quite finish anything.

Change in Reading = Change in Writing?

I haven't sat down to read a physical book in years. So is it surprising I can't sit down and write one? My mind occasionally stays on the current project, but often winds up somewhere else. Perhaps it's time for Flash Fiction?

Too big for your britches

This last online project has gotten larger and longer than I had anticipated. Writing something week by week has its struggles but on the other hand, I would have never gotten to 78k doing it as a whole project.

Daily what?

Last week I tried to write a daily blog. The thought was to use 'peer pressure' of saying I would write a daily blog to push myself to get in the habit of writing the same time every night. It almost worked. Till Friday came around.

I've been thinking of what I would be known as. And do I keep my personal life separate from my writing, or fully throw it out there?

I want to be unique somehow and I don't want to be just another person posting cat pictures. So what is there about my day to day that would be interesting? My partner is a Casey Neistat fan. And the other day while we were watching a video we had to admit we were just watching someone else live his life. But it's interesting. And besides cats, I'm not sure what I got. Last Tuesday, I literally went hopping down the stairs exclaiming that I finally got a pee sample from the cat to be able to test her for a UTI. That was my excitement for the day. Maybe week. I mean it was a huge success.

I suppose the more personal side of my life could be more interesting. After all, I do tend to write more...mature content. But while it's certainly satisfying, it's not all that exciting. The big event this week was that I ran out of toy cleaner and tried to make a joke of it by sending a picture with the most innocent thing you could think of with it. Sadly he didn't recognize the bottom half of the bottle as well as I do and didn't get the joke. My partner did suggest that I could write sex toy reviews, but who has the money for that?

So blast it all out there and hope something sticks? In reality, I'm mostly writing for practice anyway. My main goal was to write novels not blogs, this is just a side piece to explain why I write about what I write about. And it's good learning.

Gone but not forgotten
