overcoming average(?)

because it’s something the world just needs less of

I’m currently trying to write a blog post following an excellent, as always, episode of “Community” and as the newest episode of “30 Rock” has started. Productivity wise, it’s going about as well as you might expect.<p>In November, I tried to write as often as I could but felt very stifled as to what I should or even wanted to write about. The difficulty in that was that I felt like I was simply writing just to write. It felt pointless, like I was just aimlessly moving my fingers across a keyboard.<p>…Aaaaand that’s the point. Ask any writer, Stephen King in particular, and they’ll tell you that the quantity of your writing directly affects the quality of your writing. In other words, the more you just do the work the better your results have the potential to be.<p>I suck at this. I’m a lot more undisciplined than I would like to be. Further illustrating that point is that fact that I’m about halfway through “The Office” now with less than 200 words written. (By the by, how terrible is this season been?)<p>I know I need to make time, and it’s only going to get harder. That I got even this down tonight is pretty amazing to me, but I’m only three days into this project and I have a lifetime of writing ahead of me.

  1. Living with multi-task-style-ADD is both a blessing and a curse…

    Good luck to you man. I know how you feel.
