Practice

July 21, 2016 5:27pm CST
I've promised myself I'm going to write on a daily basis once more. I've fallen a bit out of the habit. Oh, I still write frequently, but not as often as I need to if I hope to improve my skill. After reading a post about owning your content once you post it on a blog, it makes me contemplate less blogging and more personal journaling. I would hate to describe the place I grew up in vivid detail, then go to use that in a book and have someone else claim to own it. That whole area is a bit grey-ish to me. I'm thinking that I may have some actual downtime this year during my homeschool co-op on Mondays and Wednesday where I could actually take my laptop and write. We'll see. My daughter is finally getting more independent which means I should be able to be sans her occasionally. Finding that time, that focused time, THAT is my biggest obstacle right now. So I'll do what I can. i'll practice when I can.

@JamesHxstatic I'm currently reading 4 books which is very unlike me. I'm normally reading one at a time, but well, it's because it is pool season as to why I'm reading 4. It will be 3 soon. :-) Then, once the pool is done for the season, it will be back to one.

It is of concern to think of having someone freely use what you have labored over.

Start putting it to actions. Do what you can. Practice will really make you become better.

I used to keep a journal and I wish I hadn't stopped. I do have some personal stories online. I hope nobody plagiarizes them.

You're right about the grey areas regarding copyright. It seems a real can of worms to me.

I hear you, I feel like I am always behind and wonder when I'll catch up. I don't usually have as much a problem in the cold winter months, but when I can, and am outside, then its an uphill battle.
