For all my friends that want to make it, whatever your “it” is, just keep posting. Just keep writing. Just keep singing, filming, acting, swimming, fighting whatever your it is. Don’t stop it. You can slow it down, refine it, reevaluate it, but don’t stop it.
QE, had a blog post that I commented on that sort of sparked this post. His post was all about writing routines and he asked what our routines were. For me I don’t have one, wish I could get into one, but I am A. Far too scatter brained, B. I juggle a lot of creative projects, C. I’m a husband and a dad so when it comes down to making memories I am going to put everything else off to spend time with my girl and my son.
All of this being said, I try to do a little bit every day. I pick a project for each day and i take taht day to work on that project. I find the time when I’m standing in line at the post office I work on my phone, on my break at work, when everyone else goes to sleep (if I’m not too tired…). If it’s important to create it, you make the time for it, even if it’s last minute, even if its 2 in the morning. You work on it and you post it.
The worst thing you could ever do is daydream that blog post, story, piece of art or song and let it fade. Trust me, I have books that I have started and pressed pause on for various reasons. I will open up google docs and look at them after what feels like only two months since I put it down only to find that it was two years ago that I pressed pause.
Keep posting. Even if it’s just a sentence a day before you fall asleep, don’t stop it.
Just keep posting. The readers, listeners and followers will come, but only if you keep posting.
You’ve Got This!
