I have been logging in ( and typing 750 words each morning. This is much easier now that I have some time off (a teacher). Much of my writing pertains to teaching and current events (social studies/govt teacher). I am all over the place in my writing. I am just typing, somewhat furiously, trying to get to 750, which takes me anywhere from 15-25 mins. I was thinking I might try to focus myself a bit and post a blog on a specific topic once a week. Kind of like my own weekly column (not sure how long). This way I can work my way through the writing process, from my first stream of consciousness ramblings to a more thoughtful, polished post. I not only want to write regularly, I want to become a better writer/thinker. A morning "brain purge" of 750+ words is a first step, and one that I want to continue with, but I am constantly fighting the urge to slow down and focus on a single topic/idea. I guess for now I need to just work on consistently getting up each morning and writing. My current streak is 4 days...
