In the first few weeks of having this blog, i think I had a “blog identity crisis.” (If there is such a thing.) I couldn’t really make sense of why I started this blog in the first place. I didn’t feel like it made sense to write here when I also write elsewhere online.
But through continuing on with writing for 5 minutes a day, in spite of my own doubts of the worth 5 minutes of writing, I realized the purpose, the good, the value of this blog for me as a writer.
5 minutes isn’t a lot. But 5 minutes a day of writing seems like A LOT when you really, really don’t want to do it. But when you do it, it’s like running that extra mile. You feel so much better afterwards.
I have learned that in 5 minutes I can say something, that I have things to say that are, sometimes, worthwhile.
I have found that in writing here for 5 minutes a day, I find it easier to write elsewhere. I am able to say more and not be afraid, while writing, of what I’m saying.
I suffer from less writer’s blocks.
In just 5 minutes a day, I think I’m becoming a better writer.
And that’s what makes this blog worth it to me.
This is an exercise, this writing for 5 minutes daily.
Have you tried writing for 5 minutes a day? If you have, what have you gained through the activity?
