Dear Awesome Reader,
When I make little movies, whether that be for my YouTube channel, or just for family viewing, I just do it. I don’t really think, I just enjoy it. I like the feeling of, ‘filmmaking is what I love to do so I’m just going to get on with it and love every second of it’. Yes, when I’m recording, I have ideas of how it’s all going to come together but that comes naturally and I’m not purposefully trying to force these ideas out.
When I began blogging, that’s sort of how it felt. I had no pressure as I thought that nobody would read it and I just enjoyed getting stuck in.
But after the first month or two, I felt increasing pressure to think about it more, plan and schedule more. That pressure was put on myself by one person. Me.
As my blog grew, I seemed to be posting less often as I re-read some of my ideas and thought, “Nah, nobody would enjoy reading that.”
What I didn’t ask myself was, “Would I enjoy writing and reading that?”
You should always be asking yourself that question. If you think people would enjoy reading it, but you know you wouldn’t enjoy writing it and it would feel more like a chore, don’t write it.
I have made that mistake more than once but from now on, I don’t want to. I’m going to write what I feel like writing, when I feel like writing. I would like this to remain feeling like a passion and not as a chore.
I have a feeling that I may be writing more frequently and just doing it. Enjoying it, and going for it.
