I wonder if there’s any such thing as blogger’s block? I know all about writer’s block, I’m thinking blogger’s block is very real, too. I started this blog several months ago with the intention of writing sharp, scintillating posts about my writing life. Up until now, I’ve not posting much at all.
I write interesting posts on Facebook, or at least my friends seem to think so. “I love to hear those stories about your cats,” they say. But my cats are a part of my personal, day-to-day life, and this blog is meant to be all about my writing life. For some reason, I haven’t been able to generate much enthusiasm for it. Sometimes I don’t have anything interesting to report about my writing. And for another, if I’m honest, I’m afraid of being judged. What if I misspell a word on my writing blog? Or what if use the same word or phrase in close proximity, like I am prone to do in my fiction writing?
Aren’t writers supposed to write “good” blog posts? After all, many of us, including myself, are published writers, and we hold ourselves to a strict personal accountability. If we are “good” writers, then we expect ourselves to be “good” bloggers.
Proofreading and editing and revising and rewriting a blog post doesn’t sound like fun. I guess I should just do the best I can and not worry about it. So that’s what I’m going to do.
