Writing should not be boring. If that happens to me, it means that I am doing it forcefully or that I do it out of habit. Yet, in either case, I won't stop writing.
I don't write because I have to. I write because I have something to say. That's why I cannot write on a schedule. Sure, I can sit in front of the screen and wait for the words to turn up. They generally do, which is why I have been a blogger for around 15 years. But I cannot force them to.
There are times when I write every day, multiple times a day. And then weeks go by, and I hardly publish anything.
This reminds me of a curious thought from James Clear. While talking about achieving mastery, he says.
Mastery requires practice. But the more you practice something, the more boring and routine it becomes.
It makes me wonder – can creativity be routine and boring? I hope not. Maybe that's the reason one can never master an art form. They are always learning. The same applies to writing.
I don't intend to master writing. All I want is to share my thoughts through words.
