I've been trying to maintain a regular set of posts appearing on this blog for almost the whole of April. I set aside 10 minutes each day to get some of my thoughts out of my head and onto paper. Then another 5 minutes to type them up and give a tiny bit of editing. I didn't intend for it to become 'a thing' but I'm surprised that I've managed to keep it going!
Sometimes I know fairly early in the day what I am going to scribble down, other times I have to really work at it. Today I had no ideas regarding what was going to come out.
At the beginning one of the hopes I had for this was to improve my writing, to help me focus what I write concisely, giving that I only had 10 minutes to get it on paper. Hopefully that is happening. One of the things I have noticed from it is that it has helped me to think things through a little bit more as I transfer the madness in my head to slightly more tangible and logical notes.
Writing things down seems to make them more real, more set, less wild and less likely to change.
