How can I encourage this writing thing? Writing is something that takes practice, and I recognize that. Yet that practice takes so much effort and involves so many decisions. Do I write online, do I write in my journal, or a Word document? Is this something I'll come back to or something that I just need to get out? What do I write about? So often I am overwhelmed by these questions and feel such pressure to write that I end up doing nothing.

I have said that my goal for this summer is to get something I have written published. I often get really excited about this kind of stuff, but then don't get much further than being excited and soon lose interest. But I must remain motivated to reach this goal.
