I just realized that I spend way too much time on each post that I write, especially since I have 0 readers right now. I think it’s just part of my personality, I can’t have any grammar mistakes, I need to fact check my sources, and I want to make the blog interesting. I overthink everything. In fact just writing down my thoughts for this is taking longer than I want it to.
I think my plan with Calvin’s Corner is to give myself an outlet to just write. I’m not going to overthink anything, and just write random thoughts down. I’m not going to edit it very much, aside from basic grammar and stuff. I want this to be a more accurate reflection of me and my thoughts. I think sometimes when I edit my posts, I cut out parts of my personality.
So each week, I’ll try to find one day where I just write for an uninterrupted 15 minutes. I think this will be good for me as well, since I can see how my improv writing changes (and hopefully improves) over time.
I’m pretty excited to be blogging, to be honest. I can’t believe that at 30 years old, I’m just trying this out now. I guess what they say is true, it’s better late than never. I don’t know how long I can keep this up. I’ll definitely be busy by the end of the year once I become a dad. But I want to try to maintain this blog for as long as I can, and share my experiences.
I think my 15 minutes are up. I’ll stop here for now.
