What do you do when you aren’t blogging/writing? Are you involved in your day to day life? Are you getting out and seeing family and friends? Are you relaxing?
It’s interesting to think about. I have reminders set up now to make sure I write every day – and not just put up favourite quotes that I find appealing that day. I think about what I’d like to write during my work day. If something comes up that I find intriguing, I make a note of it and remind myself later to write about it. Sometimes I change my mind or adjust it to my liking, that is what writing is about after all.
I have discovered, though, that putting a reminder in my calendar has made it much easier for me to blog. I have a reminder set up for 30 minutes before I’m supposed to write, which is a great thing for me.
I also do other things. Some would say I have crazy thoughts of the future, or what I want to do. Well this week, I may have proved that to some of them. I put in an application to be a contestant on a Canadian baking show. I love baking, and have been told over the years that I’m a very good baker. I saw an advertisement that they were taking applications for the new season and I thought – why not! So, the application was filled out and sent it. I won’t know until March if they are proceeding with my application or not, but the fact that I even applied felt pretty amazing. If I do get accepted – well then I’ll freak out. For now I’m just excited that my name is in their database.
So what do you all do when you’re not on here? Reading, watching TV, maybe going for a walk? Or maybe you are applying for some contest too! Tell me what you do!
