Randomness or Focus?

The problem with having a sleeping disorder is more than just sleeping.  When I'm taking my medication and it actually works (which it hasn't for well over a year) I can write my rear off.  One of my biggest complaints about suffering from this disorder is the lack of focus.  It affects every part of my life, but the one area that I hate the most is my ability to write.   When my bestie was here, I ended up wicked super mega sleep deprived.  I wasn't willing to waste our little bit of time together napping, so I dealt with it, knowing it was going to kick me in the butt when she left to go home and I wasn't disappointed.  I've been sleeping sooooo much, and it's more annoying than I can express.

I also tend to ramble a lot more when I'm not medicated.  Lack of focus and all.  :)

With all that said, I'm asking you guys since after all, you're the ones reading whatever I choose to write, do I keep trying to focus on a topic and write from the heart everyday, or should I pick a focus, however many days of whatever, etc?  If so, I'm way up for suggestions on what you guys have been up to and what you might like to see me tackle next.  I'm leaning towards the 29 days of giving because my sweetiepie Angie at Living Aloha freaking inspired the crap out of me with her posts.  I sat down and read every last one of them today and wow. Just wow.  I'm open to other ideas or suggestions though, so all you besties out there?  Lemme know what you think!


  1. I think it is hard to write unscheduled EVERYDAY, but i think doing a bit of both creates a nice balance. weekly themes are great to break up the constant "what am i going to write today?!?!?" kinda thing. I am thinking of doing one on super powers just to amuse myself lol!!

  2. Well damn, and here I've been flying by the seat of my pants all this time! Now I know the secret lol! I soooo need to check out your blogs and find out what the hell you've been up to and how the whole weight loss thing is going! I've MISSED you! I think super powers would be great, you KNOW what my favorite one is already!

  3. I personally love your randomness. :)

  4. I don't sleep much to and hehe it affects my studies ^_^ No, I'm just making excuses here. Anyway, you are a brilliant writer with so much potential and I absolutely love your writing. I tell people on Webook and even my father that I am proud to know an awesome person called 'Donna' and that she is wonderful. I write on random stuff which doesn't interest many but yeah focusing on one topic is good. I really don't know what you should write about because everything you write is brilliant. I can't wait to read more of you on your blog! Love ya!


  5. I say writing comes from the heart and if you are inspired to start a topical series and enthused about that, then go with it. It will show in your writing and it will be fun. My posts are so random but sometimes I do get on a topic and write about it a few times. Sometimes others inspire me too. Not sure whether readers prefer one or the other when they look at a blog.

  6. I'll get back to you with an answer when I get to the end of that sentence. :)

    I've been doing a theme this month. On the one hand, it's nice not to have to approach a new topic with each post for a change. On the other hand, it's kind of kicking my ass that I've committed to a certain schedule by taking the bold and somewhat crazy move of posting all the titles ahead of time in the first post of the month. I'll be happy to get back to doing...whatever it is I normally do.

    I say, do whatever floats your boat. That's the advantage of having a blog. You answer to no one but your own neuroses. Although, I'm sure we both know how demanding those can be.

  7. I love either way Donna. I think my posts from the heart are random but that's good. It's different, opens our minds. I took on the 29 Gift Challenge and it's so wonderful. It's a good feeling. Themes are good but they don't have to be repetitive. So taking on the challenge for a while is good if you want to give your mind a little break :) Either way I support you and I'll follow you everyday because I LOVE what you have to say :)


  8. Have I mentioned that I love you guys? Yep. I do, I do, I do! :)

    Thanks for all the input, I think I'm going to finish up the Thirty Days of Truth on my other blog and then switch things up and do the 29 Days of Giving here and go random there!


Make a Mama Kitty happy today! Say hi!
