I just had a quick look through my blog posts of the last year and I am pleased with the consistency, but I think I can up my game a little this time around.
I noticed whilst browsing that I have 30 drafts, most of which do not have titles. These are mostly ideas or a couple of lines that have come to mind over time but have not come with the inspiration to finish them. On occasion it is possible for me to finish them, but when I write it tends to be in one fell swoop and thus leaving me with a lot of unfinished projects.
So of course I have had the wonderful idea to look back through these drafts thoroughly and have a go at finishing them. I do not think it will be possible to finish them all, I am sure there is some terrible content amongst the passable. And so my first challenge of the year is set.
As an indicator that a future post is a revisited draft, I shall add a * in the title as a small sign of this. I have been in a lot of state of minds over time, so these drafts could be anything.
If I can get through these successfully then I have way more than 30 drafts in my laptop’s documents. I have a lot of stories that I want to share, but have been holding back because I am not confident that they will be received well. This is probably just me, because you as an audience have been nothing but kind and supportive to whatever I have chosen to share so far. That being said, hopefully I can finally start to share them too.
So new year and a new challenge. Do you find that you have a lot of unfinished work you do not share? I think it is worth having a look through your drafts, you never know, you might find a gem!
Until next time, stay creative!
