#Reverb10 Day 2 – Writing

December 2 Writing.
What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?

Mostly everything I do has some kind of effect on my writing.

I tweet a lot and most of my inspiration for my blog posts comes from Twitter conversation and topics.

I’m all about PR, PRSSA, social media, marketing, branding, etc. which is the majority of my blog so I won’t be eliminating those things out of my life!

I also stress a lot about different things and have written a few posts about how to deal with stress, appreciating things around us and calming down.

My friends even contribute to my writing because I quote them in quite a few of my posts.

Struggles and hardships also contribute a lot.

Things that don’t contribute to my writing are my daily habits like sleeping, eating, etc. and I’m pretty sure I can’t just eliminate those ;]

  1. “Mostly everything I do has some kind of effect on my writing.”

    That’s an interesting point. I couldn’t really think of anything I wanted to eliminate from my day to day routine, because everything I do is important to me in some way (or else I wouldn’t be doing it!). I hadn’t thought about how all the non-writing or non-creative things (like exercise and socializing and even entertainment) might actually be contributing to my creative process in some way. Thanks for the good food-for-thought.

    Enjoy the rest of Reverb 10. I’m having a lot of fun with it so far.

    1. Hi Bob, thanks for reading! I’m glad my post brought new points for you to think about. I sat here and thought about it for a while and even reviewed my posts. Most of my daily life does have an effect on my writing because I include or mention so much of it in my posts.

      I’m really liking #Reverb10 too! Hope you continue to enjoy it as well.

  3. Since I write about little things in my life, like the accordion music wafting up from my basement, bikini line waxing, Christmas wrapping paper, and macaroni and cheese, I have to TUNE in to the everyday things in my life. Perhaps if I were a great novelist with lofty ideas, I wouldn’t have to do this. But so far, nothing lofty has occurred to me. So I keep on blogging about exfoliation, birdfeeders, and Weight Watchers…xo molly

  5. Things that don’t facilitate my writing = procrastinating, worrying about if my posts/thoughts are going to be any good, and anything “Real Housewives” related. It’s time to give up my excuses and just get in front of the computer!

    1. Noel thank you so much for reading and your continuous support!

      Procrastinating is a good point about what doesn’t help my writing, it definitely doesn’t help to put it out. I need to get rid of excuses too. Thanks!
