Scrap what I was going to write

In the best traditions of this blog I had something planned that I was going to write about, but I got distracted.  The procrastination monster led me on  a scenic drive through the internet and I ended up somewhere far more interesting than I had originally planned to go.  Besides my original plan wasn’t exactly Shakespeare.

This time my procrastination wasn’t about playing words with friends or Angry Birds on facebook (OK, maybe there was some of that…) it was a blog I found from Linked in (of all places!)   I haven’t read through much of the blog yet, but this post spoke a lot of sense.  Telling someone to ‘follow their passion’ is really an empty platitude and really how many people are passionate about things that would make them absolutely no money.  For example unless they bring Mastermind back on here I’m not likely to make any money out of Harry Potter am I? (though my knowledge of Star Wars won me a prize off the radio once).

I guess for me the idea of ‘following your effort’ reinforces what I’m doing here.  I love writing, I want to be a writer, I need to become a better writer and the only way to be a better writer is to write more.  Hopefully by putting in the effort I will get the rewards.  Of course I still don’t think I’ll ever enjoy editing…
