If TV can take the summer off, so can I.
After writing about streaks and habits over the past few weeks, the idea of messing with my posting schedule got stuck in my head. I shouldn’t be doing this just to do this, I thought. I shouldn’t be doing this just to keep a streak alive. I should want to write.
I do enjoy writing, after all. At least so I tell myself.
So I decided to do the thing that scares me and stop the regular schedule for a while. I’m going to take the summer off. The timing is perfect. I should be out doing fun things anyway, not writing about doing fun things.
I want to see what happens when I only post when I want to, not when I have to. (Seriously, writing those two posts about streaks really messed with my head.)
I may pick up a new posting rhythm doing this, in which case — great! Or I may not post at all for the entire summer. If the latter happens, and it proves I indeed have no self-motivation when it comes to writing, I intend to be back to regular schedule-induced posting starting September 4th.
Have a good summer!
