12 things I've learnt in 12 days - NaBloPoMo Day 12

Yes, yes, I know. It's not the prompt for the day. But I really wanted to write something different.

This is my first attempt at writing a blog post everyday, for 30 days at a stretch. When I began,  I thought, " Well, it can't be that hard. It's just 300-400 words a day, after all. "

Okay, Newsflash!!

Here are 12 things I've learnt since I began the task:

  1. I always tell myself I will write during the day, but that never happens. Nope, not once! 
  2. Every shred of energy magically leaves your body when you do sit down to write. 
  3. You decide to write and words stop forming in your brain. 
  4. Sleep never looked more appealing than it has this past fortnight. 
  5. You realize that there are about 50, no wait, 500 better bloggers out there. 
  6. You look for an excuse to leave the laptop; hey, there's a new puppy in the garden! 
  7. The internet connection stops working just as you finish writing the post. 
  8. You wait for a while to upload the link and watch in frustration as you get an error message. 
  9. The kitchen actually looks more inviting than ever. We got to stay healthy, people! Where are the chocolate chip cookies? 
  10. Walking and exercise take on new meaning; if it's time away from the mandatory blog post, it's time well spent! 
  11. On a serious note, walking away from the process actually helps you clear your head. 
  12. At the end of the day, seeing the post up on the blog is satisfaction enough.
