Publishing and the Human Spirit

I’ve been writing and publishing to my blog like a mad man this year. It’s incredible to think I have published nearly 200 posts this year already on my own blog and we are only at day 134 of the year.

Pressgram has been a huge help with that. My goal is to do 500 posts on my blog this year. At least 365 will be from Pressgram. As overwhelming as it gets to push myself to keep writing and keep on publishing, it’s something I am glad I am investing my time into. The time I spent writing and creating this is much more rewarding than anything else I have encountered.

Writing has gone beyond a habit. It has become ritual. Something that I find strange comfort in each day.

I can honestly say that making the choice to call myself a writer was when this jump really happened. It pushed me to stop whining and to actually write my first book. It wasn’t my first book idea, but it was the first one I had a great focus on. It was something I knew could help others in a big way. It wasn’t as abstract as my first idea.

Ideas are a funny thing. I am told that having too many ideas is a good problem, but quite honestly I have a hard time picking one. And even when I dive into the one I choose I start to regret it at times. There is always going to be trial and error when you create something. It’s inevitable.

As much as I hate it, I love it.

Calling myself a writer and continuously publishing has really given me a new spirit. A spirit that doesn’t want to quit and no longer lingers in regret when I start things. All endeavors seem to harvest a lesson even if they fail and I’m ok with that now.
