Fail!

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that I have failed at my 365 challenge almost before I started!

This is no surprise to me – which is probably why it failed in the first place.

It’s not that I’ve had nothing to say; it’s having the time to say it. When I have gigs (especially during the week), I’m rushing from work to gig to bed. I don’t find 2am the most conducive time for writing.

The other problem is the theme I’ve given myself – to find something funny about every day. How depressed was I to realise that I could go for at least three days without anything remotely funny happening?! Don’t get me wrong, there were things that made me feel happy – they just weren’t that funny.

I’ve been reading Richard Herring’s blog which he started for exactly the same reason I set myself this 365 – to spur him into creativity for his ‘proper’ writing. He does it first thing in the morning, reflecting on the day before.

So I’m going to do just that – if I find something funny, so be it. Otherwise this will just be my ramblings of what happened yesterday. A diary, if you will. Commonly known when executed online as a ‘web log’. Or blog.
