Can we take a moment to think kind thoughts for the Loony in a parallel universe who finishes the things she starts.
I never did more than one Fiction Friday. I never finished the WordPress Blogging and Writing courses. I only made it to Day 2 of the three-day quote challenge.
I guess I could feel like I’ve failed. But it isn’t that I gave up on these things, necessarily. I’m just distracted. I have a short attention span. I’m easily lead astray by shiny/wordy/funny things. It’s just me. I’m inconsistent.
Shockingly, I’m okay with not always finishing things. As organised, pedantic and planning-obsessed as I am, I am not a very consistent person. I work hard, I think vigorously, and I throw myself into everything, but my goals change with the wind. I’m a little bit fickle-minded in some ways, and I like it. My life is rarely boring.
Maybe I’ll come back with Fiction Friday. Maybe I’ll complete a WordPress course. Heck, here is that quote from Day 3 of my quote challenge:
“ A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Honestly I just like the word hobgoblin.
Is inconsistency normal? Is it admirable or detrimental? Am I mad? (Hint: yes.)
