Writing in advance.

One thing I've been trying to do is write all my posts well in advance. Now this hasn't increased my post quality as they are all still very much just hashed out whenever I feel like but what it will hopefully do is control my urge to post 3-4 times a day. And give me material for those days when I do not feel like posting.

I don't like the posting 3-4 times in a day because I noticed I get bored of places that update that quickly....doing it once a month is okay but if you post too often then I feel like you did not take much time to think about what you are writing and you want me to just read scribblins.

I really dislike it when I do this and am hoping that by forcing myself to only one post a day I will be improving my writing. I like what I write when I take a lot of time on something but I despise most of the things I hastily bash out.

I have story ideas that I want to write but I'm not quite sure how to make time in my evening for them. Anyone else have this problem? You have multiple things you want to do, and you always seem to end up doing the 'easiest' one? For me this is WOW. I like WoW and I want to level but I often wish I had spent the time drawing or writing or cleaning up my house/garage*.

Time like eating healthy.... it is very worth it in the long term even if you dislike it in the short.

Well this post should hit Thursday. Today is Monday. We'll see how it goes.

*As of this writing the Garage is 1/2 spotless because Saturday I stopped for an hour....thats all it takes...sigh.

I know what you mean, my tendancy as a new blogger is to put something up on my page and then edit it 20 zillion times. I have to start writing in advance too so I don't do that!

Yeah writing in advance gives a -lot- more time to edit/correct things.
