My Biggest Blogging Problem

I love writing. I love blogging. But I don’t love transcribing. So I have no problem writing posts by hand, but I struggle to type them all up.

I try to write a post every day. Problem is I don’t type everything in a timely manner.

I could switch between writing and transcribing. So I write a post one day and transcribe the next.

I’m behind and unsure how to catch up. I could spend the time writing on typing up the old posts I’ve written. Although I think I’d miss writing them.

Or I can just continue writing every day and transcribing when I have extra time. By the time I get around to publishing a post, sometimes the subject isn’t that relevant anymore.

I’ve thought about trying to write posts that aren’t time sensitive. So I wouldn’t write about a holiday or an event.

In a similar vein, I might attempt to draft posts I could publish at any time during the year.

I have the same problem with my creative writing. There are tons of handwritten poems and stories in multiple notebooks. None of which I’ve transcribed.

On one hand, I could eliminate handwriting to save time. I can jump straight to typing. Too bad I love writing by hand.

Do you handwrite and then transcribe? Do you type straight away?

Writing

My NaNoWriMo 2016 Goal

I want to write every day this month. More specifically, I want to write prose. I might occasionally dabble in some poetry if I feel the need to spice up my writing life. Ideally, in November, I’ll write an entire story about the same characters in the same world. Because the writing gods know just how long it’s been since I’ve started writing a novel and went on to finish one.

Also, I wish someone could transcribe everything I thought in my head. It would make things so much easier. On second thought, maybe not.

Although I love handwriting, I haven’t been the biggest fan of typing. I blame my computer for being slow to start up. Same goes for Microsoft Word. Go figure.

So this NaNo I’m just focusing on one story. Or trying to, at least.

Ideas in my head are great. Having them written down on paper is even better.

That’s the goal. My goal. I’ll worry about everything else later, possibly in December.
