Resolved

Resolved

Although I didn’t make any New Year Resolutions, I did acknowledge that I wanted to continue being the best me that I can be. That is a resolution of sorts.

A part of that includes following my passion, passionately. For many years, I’ve been wanting to write. For just as many years, I have this fear of writing and of pursuing that passion. I once read that a writer writes. Daily. I do not write daily. When I am going through things, I do write an occasional poem. I have attempted to write quite a few novels and often don’t get past the first few pages even when I have the whole story fleshed out in my head.

In the back of my mind, I know that discipline is a necessary requirement to pursuing a writing life. I have to make myself write. Every day. That is so challenging. I’ve had a blog of some sorts for about 7 years now. Β I started on blogger and you can find that first one Β hereΒ . But I’ve never been a very consistent blogger.

I have been trying to take it more seriously in the past few months and I recently signed up for a daily post from WordPress just to learn more of the ins and outs but also to remind me that – hey, I have a blog!

I just found out today that there is a daily writing prompt and this is my first. The word was Resolve. I guess I now have a new years resolution.

Hopefully, my efforts won’t have fizzled out by the middle of the month.

experiencing many transitions in life - new husband, new house, new city, new baby. it can be overwhelming. i'm taking time to go back to basics. trying to figure it out myself. practicing that new time religion - self realization - finding, protecting, loving, perfecting me.

  1. Hello MommaPeach,

    Congratulations on your first Daily Prompt, and welcome to WordPress.com. πŸ™‚

    Following The Daily Post, doing Daily Prompts every day, maybe doing weekly challenges, doing the Blogging University Courses that interest you, and sometimes participating in Community Pools is definitely the way to go in my opinion for someone trying to get into the routine of blogging every day and learning about WordPress.com; I would also recommend following the official WordPress.com News blog (https://en.blog.wordpress.com/), looking up things on the WordPress.com Support Pages (https://en.support.wordpress.com/) when you need help, and when you need help from WordPress.com staff members you can contact them through their Contact Page (https://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/) and/or by email at help@wordpress.com.

    Good luck,
    -John Jr

      1. You are welcome MommaPeach. πŸ™‚

        Good, I think that you are off to a good start, and those resources should help; and if you need some help or advice feel free to ask. πŸ˜‰

  2. Good luck with your writing! I saw the comment above all that WordPress offers and I encourage you to look into all of it. Blogging can be addictive, especially if you love to write! By the way, I love your header picture!
