Just two blog posts away, I was sharing about Seth Godin, an author and entrepreneur; about how he would write every day. The trick was to write like you talk.
That was a great tip and I realised it helped lift that burden of any potential writer’s block off my shoulder. I thought I was going to be able to write as much as I talk. And God knows, how much I talk!
I WAS WRONG.
I am not used to the routine of writing every day. I can never write in the daytime, not even in the evening. I just had to wait until past 11 PM before I start. Sometimes, I feel I have so much to say, I don’t know which to write about first. When I need to put it on paper (type it out), it’s just a huge blob of idea mush. Is there even such a thing – a blob of idea mush?
At times, I know what I can write about but those topics are a little too heavy to write it well in one sitting. Gave those a pass. I will write those eventually.
When I am not writing, while I’m in the shower, while I’m working, even when I am driving; ideas of what to write about would flood my head. The thing is, it never stays there for long. They will march away and join that blob of idea mush. Lol!
I need to start jotting my ideas down, learn how to articulate my thoughts better and deepen my vocabulary. *OMG, do I need to read the dictionary?!*
A friend used to tell me that some of my blog posts were too long – which I totally agree. I just kept rambling on. Compile a few blog posts together, you will get a thesis.
Sigh… I really don’t feel like writing much now but I really do feel like eating.
Another 359 blog posts to go. I can do this! But first, MAKAN DULU!!!
