They say that one of the best ways to actually ensure you carry out a commitment is to make it public, which is presumably why there is always so much fuss and discussion of New Year’s resolutions: the theory is that if you tell everyone you’re giving up drinking or going on a diet, etc., you’ll lose face if you fail to follow through.
Back on January 1st, I stated my intention to update the blog at weekends and bank holidays, but this wasn’t meant to be a “resolution” and I wasn’t particularly looking for support, nor for accountability.
Having said it, though, it is particularly annoying that the last couple of weeks have provided neither time nor inspiration for writing.
I have been more than usually distracted by work and other things, and my notebooks and files seem to be full of nothing but dead wood.
I guess I’m hoping this is only a temporary situation and that I’ll soon see the light at the end of the tunnel.
