I need more structure in my life. There’s ENTIRELY too much random abounding in my daily goings-ons and as such, I must impose boundaries and guidelines on myself. Not only will these circles of propriety give new meaning to my bouncing from thing to thing, but my blog posts will now have purpose. PURPOSE!
I can already hear the angels singing.
Relatedly, you have heard of NaBloMe, right? You write a post a day? It’s like a creative contract you make with yourself. I think I will do something similar starting
today tomorrow. Except with PURPOSE and BOUNDARIES and NON-BOUNCING. And hopefully not in ALL CAPS.
This is my plan (I’m already using non-random words like “plan!”) (This really is exciting): For the period of one month, I will post according to an editorial calendar, with themes and directives. Also, I will probably use outlines.
Gosh, this sounds like a whole crock of fun already.
Here’s the calendar:
Creative writing PROMPT.
A tip (it would be helpful here if you didn’t consider the source.)
Stuff I Like
Or a book review.
Or a song review.
Or another story.
Or a vlog.
Days of rest to recover from all the planning and directives and calendaring.
Feel free to borrow my structured plan and apply its key tenets into your own life for great effect.
Of course if it works for you, I will need to charge a small fee.
Here’s to de-randomification!
(I give myself three days.)
