Alright, the title of this post is bit of a lie. Obviously, I can blog, the trouble is that I never do. This whole, “every day in November” thing is seriously pushing me to the limits.
The first problem is that I don’t have anything to say. I often think, “gee, I haven’t written a post in forever. About what should I write?” Then I sit around trying to think of something, which usually doesn’t work.
If I do happen to think of something, I tend not to have the time. I’m often so busy with work, the house, the yard, and trying to get caught up on a million other things, that my blog gets neglected.
Worse still is when I have an idea and the time, but I’m too lazy to write. This often happens with the better topics, because they will require a significant time investment, and sometimes research is necessary.
Overall, this “every day in November” thing has been good for me, because it forces me to think and write – both things I enjoy doing -Â and it also helps me begin to re-establish a pattern. I think, however, that in the future, instead of trying to write every day, I’ll try to post at least 3 or 4 times a week.
For those of you who have blogs, how do you tackle writer’s block? Do you wait it out, really sit and think, or do you just post trite crap and hope your readers don’t notice?0 People like this. Be the first!
