in the last 45 days, I have taken on a lot of writing projects. I am working on being more consistent with my blog. I am working on some freelance articles. I am working on an article for a magazine. I am honing my writing skills and my butt and my brain hurt!
Writing is exhilarating, fun, terrifying, frustrating and challenging all at the same time. While I am writing my blog, I am trying to think about the message I want to send so I think and I think some more – brain hurts!
While writing the freelance articles, I have to research and write and rewrite – butt and brain hurt!
While writing the magazine article I have to sit and tweak, cut words, change words, edit, edit and edit some more – butt hurts!
Writing is something I really love to do. As Jeff Goins says, “you are a writer when you say you are.” Well, I am saying I am so what am I doing about it? Writing and writing some more. You can’t write while walking around so you sit. Some people can write while standing at a tall desk, but not me! I would spend more time worrying about the fact that I am standing up all day and then my feet would hurt!
My butt and my brain are engaged in activities out of the ordinary but that is okay; it is the kind of hurt that you know will all be worth it!
