This May Get Interesting

As I hit day number 17 in a row of posting, I am realizing that there may be much more to this post a day challenge than just the challenge itself of posting every day. I was hoping that forcing myself to write every day would help make me a better writer. The thinking behind this is that my brain would get sharper having to actually form cohesive thoughts every day. I then realized that half the fun of me writing my blog is the fact that is is rarely cohesive. So, while so far I don’t think my brain is getting sharper from writing every day, I do think that this whole experience will be an interesting tracking of my writing.

So far, I am not thinking that my writing has really improved at all, but I do think that there has been some changes. I can tell the days I was lazy and wrote something simple. I can tell when I wrote something while I was watching TV. I can tell when I was writing something while I was changing Tori. Yeah, I can multitask pretty well.

What will I think writing every day will do for me then? I think that this will eventually drive me insane. I have decided that I will be using the post a day challenge to track my slow decent into craziness. Why do I think I will go crazy? Well, I seem to write later and later every night in order to make sure that I get my post in. I wrack my brain for hours trying to think of something to write about. Sure, I could use the topics that are being suggested by post a day but I want to do this on my own, with my own topics. Besides, if I used any of their suggestions, then I might write something that makes sense. What fun would that be right?

Of course I could ask for suggestions of topics and what not, but I already did that. I haven’t forgotten about those either and I WILL be doing them I promise. The challenges I got before though take some time and more brain power than I can do most nights. Once again I digress. Basically, lets see how much my writing changes during this. If anyone wants to volunteer to critique, that would be great. Look at a post ever month and see how they compare on a month to month basis. Let me know what you think. I hope I can keep a nice acceptable level of insanity while still keeping it real. Am I allowed to “keep it real” still or is that another hopelessly out dated phrase I am just learning?

Well, that is about the extent of my rambling for tonight. Until next time, remember … “I love you passionately. From the first moment we met, I knew I aroused a powerful emotion in you. It was disgust, but I can build on that.”
