*** Clears throat ***
There comes a point in every writers career when he just can’t figure how to go on and I think that I’ve just reached that point…
Hold-up! Before you get carried away with that fiction, you should know that there’s something wrong with it, no I meant a lot of things wrong with it. First of, I really dunno if all writers get a block, I mean, it is quite possible that some people are really really smart and they never get to that point, or maybe it’s not, I really dunno but I wrote that anyway. Then there’s the me referring to me as a writer, yeah right! So much for writing. And then the biggest of all fallacies – “I think I just got to that point” what? Wait, who am I kidding? Think I just got there? **scoffs** More like I think I’ve been living there! Been at that point forever and now I’m just really sick of it. Sick of the not knowing what to write or how to, I can’t really explain what the feeling is but some smart people did rightly call it a ‘writer’s block’.
So I’ve heard of people who sit in front of their computer, or their type writer, or just simply a desk with a pen and paper for long hours that’s rounded off with a frustrated sigh and a blank sheet, those are normal people. No, that’s wrong, normal people are able to write when they set out to the task, the people with with the blank sheet, I think are just weird. Now you’re probably thinking “But you’re one of them!” I hate to brake this to you but you’re wrong, you see… me! – I’m a different kind of weird.
Unlike most people thinking about what to write, that’s the easy part, it’s the writing that’s the task. It’s like this, I wake up most mornings with a seemingly bright idea of what I’m going to write, I get excited about it l, turn it over in my head a couple of times until I finally think that it’ll be awesome, but somehow I go to bed at night – without writing anything – telling myself stuffs like – it wasn’t good enough! Or, nobody wants to read about stuffs like that! Or, that’s not what the blog is about! Or, it’s just too personal – how I came to know exactly what people want to read, or became a judge of ‘what’s good enough’, is a mystery even I can’t comprehend. And then, what’s a personal lifestyle blog if it can’t get a little personal, hun? Somebody please ask me.
I know, I know, I’ve got a problem – I think that that is what it is, and I’m acting as though I have the solution but I don’t have it, not just yet anyway because you see the cycle keeps going on and on and I can tell you that this came out better the first two times I thought about it, but this here is what I’ve got and it’ll have to do. I wish that I could say that this is my first break-through but I’ll hate to say it and it ends up not being it, but then again not saying it is being a pessimist – it’s almost like saying I’m really sick but I don’t know if I want to get better! So I’m just going to say that it is what it is.
I could really use your help over-coming this psychological obstacle. Help save the meek chic.
Peace be with you…
