Sometimes, it's truly a battle to force yourself to keep writing daily on a blog. Most of my daily blogger friends have cut back from doing it daily to mostly daily or just a few times a week while a vast majority have quit entirely.
Right now, I'm fighting against slowing down my personal schedule. I know if I do slow down, I may keep slowing down to the point where I'm only writing a small percentage of days each month. I'll look at this empty text entry field and think to myself, "Dammit. What I have to write is just not interesting or funny or provoking or... anything." and then I won't do it. Considering how creatively bereft I've felt for years now on this blog, that's exactly what would happen. I'd do anything else.

But I just hate writing whiny tripe like this (and, yet, I do it anyway). Is it worth it to slow things down to try to kickstart creativity?
If I can just make it to this coming Wednesday...
