I’m really, really trying to write a blog post once a week. I am failing. But at least I’ve done a few. The thing is, it is really easy for me to write certain things. I can explain things pretty well. I can write some darn good math content at this point. But writing things that are just entertaining/interesting/nobody is being FORCED to read? That is a bit more pressure!!
Today on a Facebook writers group I joined, someone mentioned that they blog every single day – movie reviews, book reviews, whatever. That was a bit awe inspiring. I get stuck between wanting to get a bunch of stuff written and out there so that eventually something will be interesting and someone will want to read it vs. writing very few things that are very interesting so I don’t scare away the 3 followers I have.
So I do neither. Ha!
I’m not sure if I will ever finish my novel. I am pretty sure I *will* finish some educational writing I’m working on, and some that I just have planned. Someday I might write something about my completely totally screwed up family (not the part of my family that I live with, they’re all very awesome…) although really I hope one of my aunts or cousins does that (maybe one from each side of the family, since both sides are nearly equally interesting). Maybe I’ll even write something memoir-ish at some point about my experiences with losing various family members in various terrible ways, some permanent and some not necessarily permanent.
Until I have something ready to send to a publisher though, I have no audience, so my blog has no audience. This is terribly frustrating. That’s why I keep talking about it lol. So instead of writing, I complain about how I don’t know what to write. Now this is exciting content!!
Ok, this is me convincing myself to write, even if I don’t want to. I am going to aim to write something every day or two or three, with permission for myself to bore my 3 followers to death if necessary. Sorry guys!
