When writing my blog, I like to do it in the evening, or just after I get home from work. I have usually finished the "work day" part, said goodby to my wife as she goes off to her job and I am left to my devices. That said, the daily inspiration from this challenge has given me a sense of accountability and helped create a habit of writing (at least for the past five days) daily. I like to take things in small bits, so I have started limiting myself to 50 minutes of work (maximum) before I take a rest, get up and move about or go for a walk. This is way better than sitting at a desk for hours. I used to do that years ago, but now I work outside and in a constant state of motion. The idea of sitting at a computer for hours summons some form of "retro office PTSD". My wife has been SUPER supportive (she always has) and when we are both home she is usually working on a project or two on her own. Our home is small (580 sq ft) so there is really nowhere to hide.
In the past there has always been a perceived "lack of time" or distraction. This is an illusion and I have to keep telling myself this. If I want to be successful at writing, I will need to make allowance in my schedule and apply that time to this project.
I prefer to have silence to be able to think about what I am writing. Televisions or loud outside noises can be an annoyance to me that contributes to the distraction.
I am just learning the nuts and bolts of the blog lifestyle and hope at one point to monetize it but for now I need to get better and continue to research my niche and stay disciplined.
