How long did you think I'd actually last?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Melting Pot : One Thread
Well, I did it. I actually managed to keep up my journal for a whole year - and a day. I honestly didn't think I could do it for this long. I honestly thought I'd give up before I even got started.
This isn't necessarily about me and my journal. Although I'd love to know if some of you thought I'd give it up a long time ago. What I'd really like to know is how hard it is for you to keep going. Have you lasted longer than you thought you would?

I have tried keeping a paper journal in the past, never lasted longer than a month. Online, I am on my 9th month. Go me!
It is hard to keep going sometimes...the ideas run out, the feedback dries up...real life gets in the way....but eventually you write something that strikes a chord..helps you to grow or to better understand your own state of being.
then the fire glows anew.
