“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde
This is going to be an entry about my desire to be consistent with this blog account. It only appears like I’m doing nothing because I have requirements I wish to meet before posting an essay. Therefore, there are several essays in development. However, none are ready to be posted yet.
The struggle for an informative and entertaining read is something I strive for all the time. To improve my writing, I am taking a couple of classes on Skillshare. This is not an endorsement of the product. I have just succumbed to all the ads, that I have seen on YouTube. There are a number of creators I follow that have endorsed the service. Some even have classes on the Roster. Yes, those are my first three classes. Courses take up an hour to 50 minutes to watch. Each lesson is broken up into 9-5minutes. All the lessons can be taken one day. I am breaking them up to absorb the lessons, take notes and use the resources offered. If there are longer lessons in classes I haven’t seen them yet. It is true that Skillshare is the budget savvy Master class, I’m good with the price. If needed I will add my thoughts on how everything is going.
One of my goals is to improve my writing and become consistent with the work I produce, for this blog.
When I invite people to the JC Henry Universe Blog, I want them to see something of value and come back, make comments, recommend it to others. No one wants a bad blog site, otherwise, why make it public?
The other goal is to be a published author. I’m a writer and I write almost every day. I don’t doubt that. An accredited author is a level of success I have not reached. Yet. There are several reasons for that. Some might say this blog is published so stop nitpicking. I agree and disagree at the same time. In the future, I would go in detail what I think my creative success would be. Expect it to be an interesting exercise. Mainly because along with that I should add the steps taken to achieve success. If no one has said it before, let it be stated here. There is no such thing as Instant Success. For people on TV, Films, and other media. Especially for writers who wish to be authors. We always have a day job. I have even heard a couple of authors state that they prefer it that way. I am still on the fence on that subject.
Another reason I wanted to write this brief essay and post it is that I don’t post regularly. This is the beginning of a new month and week, full of opportunities and possibilities. I have to stay positive and produce the work I want people to see. This is all I have to say on this subject. Maybe in future Sunday post, I will have more relevant things to include. I hope everyone’s week goes well.
