Since writing a couple of days ago about changing my method of journalling, I’ve had a few further thoughts.
I suppose one of the reasons I would prefer to write in 10 minute bursts is simply that my attention span is limited. Thirty five minutes is a long time to be writing continuously without stopping to think. That is how long it took me to write the three pages that I have been doing up to now, and that is probably why I have found it difficult to keep going consistently. That amount of writing continuously has a lot of resistance attached to it.
I think splitting the journaling into ten minute bursts will work just fine. And what does it matter if I only do one or two bursts during the day, instead of all three? The aim is to get ideas for the blog and for life in general. This blog can’t exist without a constant flow of new ideas - and neither for that matter can I!
