Good afternoon all! I hope everyone out there on the interwebs is feeling fine today! I want to talk today about the process of writing, specifically having something to write about every day. I am not a great writer by any stretch of the imagination. My vocabulary is limited at best and I am not exactly filled with stirring visions or words that pop off the page with any sort of voracity. My use of words is basic. Not a lot of fancy metaphors or any other writing tricks are in my repertoire.
I started this blog with the hopes of revitalizing my creativity, my imagination. I wanted to have an outlet for all of the creative ideas that are inside my head at any given time. The reality of it is when I sit to type, my mind goes blank. Any semblance of an idea drops off quickly and leave me here sitting dead pan staring into a computer screen. Any given day my focus is blurry at best. There seems like there is so much flotsam and jetsam flying around in my brain, but I can’t seem to tie any of it down. This doesn’t even begin to explain my personal thoughts on how I really don’t feel like I can add anything new or provide some sort of insight to what I am talking about. Why start a blog then? Well that’s a great question. I am hoping I can grow as a writer and I hope to grow my confidence while typing away about whatever I can think of to talk about. You are seeing a work in progress, not just as a writer, but on a small degree as a person.
That’s all I have to say today. Gonna keep it short and sweet on this Monday. Let’s hope the weekend gets here fast!
