So I watched a TED Talk a while back about trying something new for 30 days, and I’ve decided to give it a try. The logic makes sense. 30 days is about how long it takes to form a habit, but it’s a fixed length of time so you can easily see the end so should be possible to stay motivated.
This month I am going to try and post 1 thing per day until October
31st. The only restriction is that it must be at least 300 words.
While blogging isn’t exactly a new thing for me, I want to try to get
back into the habit of writing things. Being able to string words
together in order to communicate thoughts is a skill I value highly.
I also have some academic incentive as midterm season is quickly
approaching. While I doubt that there will be any essay questions for Math 240
my political science classes will surely involve writing essays.
Hopefully I will bring myself to write some practice answers to sample
Finally, I may try my hand at short story writing. I wish that I was
better at imagining stories, building worlds and forging characters. So
this will be an attempt to turn this abstract wish into something more
concrete, though I don’t offer any guarantees on quality.
