So, after my last post I was going to talk a little about the reasons we don’t ask questions… but the more I thought about it, the more I thought the reasons I gave in the original post seem pretty self-explanatory. I’m going to do something else with this post.
For me, the hardest part of maintaining this blog is that I have not set a regular time for writing. Instead, I rely on filling the “spare” moments I have to do some writing. While this shouldn’t be problematic, it is. I end up “not writing” too often.
In order to combat avoidance I am scheduling time to write on the blog specifically, each week.
I was also beginning to believe that not having a “focus” for the blog was making the actual writing more difficult. I have all these ideas, but I find myself pre-editing and deciding what you all may or may not want to read. Perhaps I should quit worrying and just write…
I was listening to Billy Collins (Former poet laureate of the United States) talk about how he writes. He writes for himself and doesn’t worry much about the bigger audience. I found myself thinking, “Well, that’s fine for a poet who already has a huge following…” and I realized I’m worried about what you think.
While I like you all very much, especially if you have stopped by to read this, I just can’t worry about what you like or don’t like. It’s stressing me out. I’m gonna keep writing but it will be for me first…
Hope you choose to come along, but if you don’t, I’m ok with that.
