I think I may be stuck in a blogging block?
I have so many ideas to write about -a notebook full and a complimentary note on my phone! But when I get to my laptop and finally sit down to write I seem to have two struggles.
- How do I choose what to write about!? I’m always stuck trying to decide if I should write about a new book I just read, a place I want to visit, or my work struggles? As you may have noticed, I don’t really have a niche or a theme for my blog posts. This blog is more for me to write about anything I feel a desire to write about. But my life is all over the place so when I only have an hour to sit down it can be overwhelming to choose just one or two ideas to expand on before I start getting tired and then it turns to me being annoyed and frustrated at every little thing if I don’t get my beauty sleep.
- Words are hard, as my college professor would say. I can easily formulate what I want to say, but in my mind. Once I start getting it down it never seems to be the same as what is in my mind. Does anyone else have this issue???? I’ll type it exactly as I’m thinking it and then I reread it and I go ‘that’s not at all what I was thinking!’ I don’t even know how that is possible but if there is a way to be completely crazy and impossible, my mind can do it!
When you see me disappear for a week – or sometimes even longer – I swear I’m still thinking of you all but I am either struggling to find the right words to write – you see what I did there 😜 – or I’m struggling to pick something to write about from my long and ever growing TBW (to be written) list. Or the high possibility I’m sick because I have a terrible immune system for a twenty something year old and get deathly sick every season.
I’m sure I’m not the only one with one or both of these issues. I guess it’s all just a part of this life thing we are all going through for oh yeah, our entire lives!
Let me know some of your blogging/writing struggles, or just life struggles. Maybe we have the same struggles and can whine over wine together!
