I’m in a mood today. I’m not sure why or what sparked it, but I’m going with it. It must be a Wednesday thing, because the same thing happened last Wednesday.
You might not like it. It might make you uncomfortable. It might make you a little uneasy with me.
I’m apologizing in advance. I don’t know what brought it on. This seems to happen only on the occasions that the lizard is just as fired up as I am.
Perhaps my idea of blogging everyday is silly. I mean, who am I to think I might have something even slightly meaningful to say each and every single day….geeez…
Who am I kidding?
But you know what? I’m going to do it. I’m going to hit the publish button every single day.
You keep virtually plowing through your pretend farm, tending to your virtual crops, and I’ll keep shipping.
Maybe, just maybe, I’ll eventually get good at it. Blogging is something that has interested me for years. And for years, I could never get around to doing it consistently. I had excuses galore. And when I did blog, my grammar and spelling was atrocious. I can imagine my elementary school teachers cringing from ear to ear.
But I’m the one laughing now. Because I know I’ll prevail.
I think it’s like anything else in life. If you’re not willing to put in the time and practice on a consistent basis, you’re not going to get good at it. It’s really that simple.
Whatever your skill is, you’ve got to be willing to practice it and do it even on the days every bone in your body is telling you to skip it.
Remember – art isn’t just about drawing, painting, or sculpting. Your art is what you do, and everything you put into it.
If your art is owning and operating your ice cream shop, so be it.
If your art is operating a hot dog joint, so be it.
Daily regimented practice is the key.
Who knows? A year from now, I might get really good at this. You keep harvesting your digital crop, and I’ll keep seeding mine.
