365 Days of Hypochondria

And other personal happenings.

Confidence (Day 173)


Today in my writing class, we had to do a ‘spontaneous combustion’ exercise. Basically, we had to write on a whim for two hours. All my professor gave us was a title and two lines; the first and the last.

At the end of the class, I wasn’t that happy with what I had written, but I was happy with how I handled the situation. I managed to somewhat finish a story in the spur of the moment and I was confident in myself while doing it. This time last year, I would have been a lot more anxious about the task. Today I was focused and I had faith in myself. I definitely feel as if I’ve accomplished something.

  1. This is so me with drawing today! One of the best exercises drawing/painting professors used to give in classes was to limit the time frame. The trick now, that I’m still struggling with, is sticking to a schedule or time limit so I can at least accomplish the basics of an idea. WIP.

    • It definitely helps! Sometimes I find myself jotting down words or sentences I’d like to turn into stories but I would probably get much more done if I just sat down and wrote for a certain period :P.
