And make it double?
Sorry. The fact that this was a perfect chance to reference Team Rocket just happens to be a coincidence.
I’m getting ready to take on the 100 Things challenge, and as such, I’ve had to do one of those things that I normally balk at:
Making an outline.
Yeah, yeah, blah blah outlines won’t kill me blah blah. But I don’t like doing it because it’s, well, work.
Yes, I know writing is work! Now stop burning my tires up with your rampant braking!
*lead foot to gas pedal*
The idea: I’m about to start the 100 Things Challenge, in which I plan to blog about 100 of my favorite things. The structure isn’t—well, I don’t have one to speak of yet. So what I need to do is come up with a structure of some sort. I know for certain that the Things won’t be all THINGS, specifically—some are places, some are sensations, and some are situations. Some of them will be little things, things that seem almost inconsequential in the grand scope of things. But they’re things that I like, and as we’ve mentioned before, things that I like are going to be a big thing this year, making sure that I make it through the shenanigans that have been going on.
The Process: I haven’t really thought of the process yet. I’m thinking, create a document in Excel or Word, list the Things that I want to do in a table, and then do them bit by bit, storing the information and drafts first in Scrivener, and then importing them here into my WebStory client for posting.
The Problem: I’m…REALLY bad at that.
The challenge, therefore, will be more than just me faffing about going on and on about things that I like. It’ll be an excercise in how to do things the way they’re supposed to be done, with a bit of structure. In addition, because it’s going to be all about things that I like, there’ll be that little rush of feel-good chemicals that you get when you’re sharing stuff about the things you like.
And the gods only know how much I need that rush of feel-good chemicals right now.
I’d best get to work on that outline/spreadsheet/thing.
