Yesterday, I told 3 different people that my trick for keeping blog inspiration coming is to just keep writing. That it’s a habit thing for me, and that the more I do it, the more I want to do it. And the less I do it, the easier it is to keep not doing it.
So here’s me, just writing.
It’s hard because I have a lot of things I’d love to write about, but am censoring myself on. Work, money, life things that are all things I can’t or won’t say to the internet–the surest way to give me writer’s block is to have everything I REALLY want to talk about be off limits. It’s like my brain won’t let go of those words and ideas enough to give any new ones any traction.
But here’s me, just writing.
I also find that I just don’t have the energy for all the outrage apparently required to have an opinion on things these days. I have opinions, of course I do, on everything from the mommy wars to articles about blogging to politics, but I just do not have the mental energy for the outrage that I’m sure would accompany any thing I write about any of those things. Maybe my opinions just aren’t strong enough to feel like sharing them, but I look at these things and just feel…tired, thinking of “handling” that level of caring. So I just…don’t.
So this is me, just writing. Nothing of substance, nothing of style, nothing…but something.
Because I need to just keep writing.
