I don’t believe in Writer’s Block nor do I suffer from it. The onlyÂ problemÂ I have with writing lies in how much I dislike most of what I write.
The words flow from my fingers onto the page and when I look at them I cringe and wonder why I would ever publish something as awful as what I am looking at. I stare at it and wonder why when I call the words forth they refuse to assemble in a way that is pleasing and then I just shrug my shoulders and move on because the only way to get to the other side is by going through.
I Just Murdered 800 Words
Yeah, I just deleted 800 words because I thought they were simply awful and I couldn’t stomach giving them life. It was another case of bad blogging and I wasn’t willing to be guilty this time around so you are getting this post instead.
This is where I tell you that NaBloPoMo is an exercise in which people blog daily and that if you can blog daily you can support multiple blogs because both of them are exercises in discipline.
Look at the blurry photo above and you see theÂ newÂ kitchen from my old house but I see 10,000 memories and that reminds me that the best bloggers are storytellers.
That is the trick we all want to master, learning how to tell a story that is so compelling people can’t help but keep reading. It is a big part of why I write daily because the goal is to figure out how to master that trick and I haven’t a clue how it is done other than to practice writing with reckless abandon.
Give Life To Old Posts
Sometimes I try to revive old posts by sharing them long after they ran with the hope that readers who haven’t seen them will find a golden nugget among them.
It is why I decided to share the links below with you. Something in it may resonate with you or maybe I still feel guilty for murdering those other words.
