I mentioned in my New Years Resolutions post that I wanted to try to blog more and so I have, well at least for January 2022 that is.
What was the secret to your success?
Getting ahead of the game was key. Writing and scheduling posts made the task much less stressfull and less prone to writers block.
I regularly spend my Saturday morning anlysing my notes from the previous nights session at Dragons Keep Roleplay Club and committing the action to our session blog.
I find writing is cathartic and you need something to warm you up and get the creative juices flowing. Our session blogs were an excellent motivational tool for this.
What about Inspiration?
A lot of my blog is about getting my ideas out of my head and onto a page where they can be immortalised and free up some space for something new. Sometimes this is immediate, I have an idea in the shower and scribble it down, other times it takes more planning and production. These longer form articles can take many weeks to craft, especially if they are accompanied by original artwork.
Can you keep this up?
Maybe... Today, I return to work which means early starts and a long commute into and out of the office. Will I have the energy to think about things or will I just decompress myself on the sofa. who knows...
