It was easy, in a way, when I first got started. Because it was new, and I crave new. Something I have not done before. I have no clue how to do. It was challenging because I wanted to do it every day.
Then, it started to feel like a chore. A burden. One more thing I HAVE to do instead of I WANT to do.
There were gaps. On days when I found it overwhelming - though my podcasts were simple and short. Oh, this "first world" problem I was facing. How ridiculous, superficial and self-centered. It's just a podcast about writing prompts. Something that was supposed to encourage me to write everyday.
Why do I need encouragement to do something I love?
Because although I love writing, I just don't always feel comfortable sharing my writing. Why? Maybe it's not always polished, good, eloquent, interesting. Ha! I thought. Really, you are taking yourself and your writing far too seriously. So I looked for ways to make the process easier to the bits that were holding me back.
