A Consistently Written Blog...

The other day I came across a blog. I was searching for another blog where I could submit a short story (since the Weekly Writing Prompt website is taking this week off...) and this is what I found.

Now, to the credit of the blog's creator, I have no idea when this blog began. It could have been created last week, or even the day before I found it. And if this is the case, I wish the blogger accomplishes what he/she set out to do--write one short story each week until at the end of the year, they will have created quite a collection.

But just maybe this blog was started a month, or a year, or even several years ago. If that's the case, they didn't do what they wanted to do. This was to be a weekly blog. Mine is a daily. I often wonder why I write daily and--assuming this blog is months or years old--this picture reminds me why I write daily. It's because I probably wouldn't write at all if I didn't include a daily submission.

It's possible I could do a weekly blog. The trick is finding a time to write and sticking to that time. A daily is easy. I write before I got to bed. If I wrote a weekly, I'd just have to make sure I was disciplined enough to stick to my schedule. 

For their sakes, I sure hope this person is just beginning their blog. I wonder how many sites are out there like this. It would be interesting to know...

  1. Sorry there's no prompt, Scott. ;) At least you found a cool blog. I think there are a lot of those out there. I know of one I caught when she first started and I tried to encourage her to continue, but she only ever wrote 2 posts.

    I try to write daily, too, mostly because I like consistency and when I only wrote 2 times a week, it was never on the same days. With a type of post schedule (sort of) it helps to keep me going. :)
