It seems, every time I post on my blog I do it so sporadically. I am not doing it on purpose, I swear! It is just sometimes I have trouble coming up with a good topic to write about. So in order not to bore my readers, I end up not writing at all. I would rather write about something a little interesting or share something that I actually enjoy with my audience instead of writing something for the sake of writing. In my opinion, it is far worse than not writing anything at all, when there is no topic to speak of. Do you not agree?
Anyway, I have been keeping myself locked away in my mind for quite some time now, and have been thinking a little about my writing hobby and writing career. Basically my writing future. I have been wondering how many times a writer must write to be considered a dedicated, serious and good writer? I have heard of writers who write almost every second of every day. I have heard of writers who write a page or two per day to keep up their craft. I have heard of some who write every other day. And I have even heard of those who write as sporadically as I do. However, the million dollar question is: when is it considered overdoing it and when is it considered being too lax when writing is concerned?
I am aware that everyone is different and everyone does things differently, but what is considered a good balance for writing? I always wondered about these kinds of questions? Am I not a good and serious writer if I do not put pen to paper at least once every day or every other day? Granted, I am mostly writing as a hobby, but it does not make me any less serious than a writer who writes every day of his or her life, does it? I would really like to hear your opinions on this.
