Posting schedules be damned!

Kneeling by Jennie Rosenbaum Kneeling by Jennie Rosenbaum

do you know what? my brain doesn’t work to a schedule. I want it to.. but it doesn’t. so I get so many ideas for posts and I never write them down, why? because somewhere I came under the belief that I needed to adhere to a posting schedule of some sort. I am not the sort to can a post for later, so it never gets written, and then I forget about it when it comes time – so I don’t even adhere to my schedule anyway! it’s enough to make you crazy- or at least it’s enough to make me crazy as the two constantly battling hemispheres of my brain go at it once more, warring over the need for structure and schedules and the need to be spontaneous and creative.

This is affecting my artwork too, I think and I plan and I schedule and I get in my own way and trip over my own need for organization. some planning is good, my artwork is definitely showing that, but I need to stop planning so much and getting everything perfect and just Go For It I need to recapture spontaneity.

this posting schedule is driving me crazy, it’s adding to my stress levels and it’s actually preventing me from posting. so it’s gone! I will still post Friday Nude Quotes but apart from that I think I am going to just let the posts fall where they may, there may be none in a week and then 10, there may be 2 one night and none for the rest of the week. I don’t know, but I need to give myself a break and write when I want to, not when I feel that I should.

  1. I don’t know how you feel about writing on your phone; that’s how I capture fleeting ideas. I have several hundred notes on my phone which begin with the word ‘Idea:’, some of them are the seeds of a writable story, others are for blog posts. Many of them are for gadgets that may never exist. Some of the early ones are for gadgets which came to exist (usually independently of me; I’m lazy).

    I’m a tech-nerd and narrative-addict. For you, this would obviously be different, and might be completely useless.

    If this approach hits the ‘not the sort to can a post for later’ thing, I’d ask: do you draft when you post, even for a few seconds? I can’t even write this comment without finishing, then giving it a read-over, reformatting it, changing bits. That means that if I’m idea-poor when I get to the PC, I can take a rough idea and draft over it repeatedly until it’s a post.

  2. I have written posts on my phone, I have a number of systems set up to allow me to post via email or online, but I don;t really use it. part of it is that it’s harder to flow when typing that way, you have to be very careful of typos. the second reason is that I find them hard to read over when they are done (and they need the extra vetting on my phone) and often miss bits. so I can the post. I write part of it on my phone then email it to myself and it sits..

    it’s not so much about proofreading, I proofread everything (sometimes more than others) but I proofread just after I write it. if I leave a post for even an hour it will almost never get posted. I have tons of drafts in my editor that will never see the light of day because I will never let them be “finished” -the spirit has left me on them. if it doesn’t get out there when its hot in my mind it won’t get out there at all usually.

    god forbid I start a multipart. that never seems to work, my brain won’t hold the interest long enough for it to happen. this is not something I like about my brain.

    personal experience andd thoughts online. Please
