Winging It

I really do not know what I am going to write about for this blog post. I feel like the quality of the post is going to suffer because of it.

Typically, I put a good amount of thought into what I am going to write, the weekend before I post. Almost always, the idea for the post relates to some idea or experience I had the week before. After I give it some thought, the idea behind the post finalizes and I feel comfortable writing the post on Monday.

But this week, I have nothing. So, I just sat down and told myself to start writing. And there are two ways I can intrepret what I am doing.

I could view it as not allowing thought to get in the way of action. I am being mindful while writing. I am going with the flow of the moment. The post will accurately reflect my thoughts. And this post will be better than all of my other posts.

Or I am just winging it. My lack of planning will result in a low quality post. And I won’t get any point across regardless of the amount of effort I put into the actual writing of the post.

Like most things, it is not that extreme and it is not an either/or situation.

I think that there needs to be a little planning beforehand. But I also think that once you sit down to write, you just need to go with the flow.

So, how does this post measure up to my other ones? It brings up interesting points but does not make not make a definitive point. But not all posts need to do that.
