I decided to see how fast I could type something consisting of five-hundred words.
However, I feel I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
I’m trying to force myself to work more on writing by writing five-hundred words each day.
The problem I have is that I have far more ideas than I do time. My mind goes off in many different directions and it can end up compounding with the issues I have with procrastination.
Once I push through and force myself then I don’t have a problem with writing.
Well, most of the time.
I usually don’t have a problem with writing when I sit down and do it.
Sometimes I can work on something short or a review for hours more than I need to.
The review of Apex Predator – Easy Meat took around a month to write as I didn’t know what to write about it most of the time, even though I knew what to write, if that makes sense.
Another reason as to why I’m forcing myself to write five-hundred words each day is that with all the overtime I’ve been working I’ve become a bit lazy which has led to a lot of things going by the wayside. Music, writing, drawing, photography and seeing friends have become less of a priority. I’m still doing all of those but not near the amount I am able to at the moment. Obviously they all require their own individual attention but at least if I force myself to write then that’s one less thing I’m being lazy with.
I am wondering what I can think of that is interesting to write about right now but I’m really unsure. I’ve been home for about fifty minutes at this stage. I cycled home and had a shower, then had to get my mouse working as it wasn’t being detected by my laptop (the mouse needs replacing). Now I’m writing this.
Am I writing about writing or am I just writing about my desire to write more than I do?
I’m not entirely sure at the moment.
It’s most likely an irrelevant thought that is designed to make me feel far more philosophical than I actually am.
Or it’s just a train of thought.
I do know I feel a bit tired at the moment, so writing is a little more difficult than it should be.
At least if I work on this enough I will improve my ability to write. That is important to me.
I like the ability to write a lot and I like that I can keep improving. Maybe I’ll find my own style one day. Maybe not.
So long as I keep improving.
I imagine that the more I write the more I’ll be able to get some of my ideas down.
My apologies for something else that is obvious.
Google thought it would take me about fifty-five minutes to get home using my bike.
It took me twenty-nine.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 16:48:37.
I think I can do it faster tomorrow.
