So I must admit that my attempt to treat writing like a job and to submit one post a week was a complete failure. My brain refused to be tricked. And in terms of my initial goal of writing 15 minutes every day, I am also failing miserably. However, I realized that since I attended the writing workshop hosted by the Greater Madison Writing Project, I am writing so much more. I started this blog in June and have written four posts, that’s about one a month, not so shabby, and while I am struggling to meet my expectation of 15 minutes a day, I am writing every week, sometimes for much longer than 15 minutes, so I’ve decided to go the route of celebration and praise over punishment and shame as a means of reinforcement, and I plan to record the minutes I spent working on my own writing from post to post.
