Follow through

As I sit here to write this blog my mind wanders as I try to think of something to write about. I made a promise to write something every week. So here I sit, and here I write.  

I have found that I enjoy writing. I began reading essays on Medium and became inspired to dabble in my own. So I started writing a few personal narratives and posting them on Medium. They were terrible. At least I think they were. But the point is I am writing and I feel good doing it. Writing gives me the opportunity to express my feelings and emotions. It allows me to explore the off-beat thoughts floating inside my head. It is my release and it is my creation. 

I have started a list of topics I want to write. I have found that if I don't write them down, I forget what may have been a great idea. There are about six ideas on that list right now.  It does not sound like much, but writing them is taking more time than what it took in the summer.  I plan on getting to all of them. 

In the meantime, I will continue to work on my craft through this blog and my essays, slowly for now.  Who knows, maybe one of you will inspire my next great thought and I will write about it. If that happens, I know it will be my best work yet.
