It's only words...

I’m always impressed by – and envious of – those people who write reams of stuff every day on any and every issue, whether in actual print or on their blogs. I sit for hours (not literally), fingers poised over my keyboard in readiness for whatever thought might issue from my brain… but nope. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

It’s not that thoughts don’t cross my mind, but try as I might, they simply don’t lend themselves to being converted to blog posts. They evade blogpostdom almost as if they were sentiently, on purpose, dodging being pinned down on screen.

How I wish I could haemorrhage words in a way that made for interesting reading… or even just haemorrhage words (sense and readability can be faked once there's a loyal core readership that's addicted to reading anything) - but no, the flow is always halted by a large clot.

Me.

Sighhhhhhhh…....

Yea sure, that will work for not churning anything :P

You've heard of quality over quantity no?

I've been thinking of that lately too. Some people put something on everyday and I have lots of scattered thoughts that I think will make a good entry later, but I don't get them down. Depends on what you are using blogging for I guess. some people really jot down trivia in their daily lives...an outlet for them in some way.
I thought of a new way. We can write a post and save it as a draft, add all the little thoughts to it as they come along without necessarily publishing them yet, and then publish a kind of scattered thoughts post.Iin fact, it looks as if some people do that.

maybe you are just too much of a perfectionist.. so you can't get anything down! sometimes, just write. don't think about how 'good' it is.

for me, i always have too many thoughts for blog posts too. so i have a backlog of things i could write about but don't get around to doing..
