This post is my first time participating in Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. How timely her question was!
What do I find most difficult about blogging?
Actually taking my idea, sitting down, and turning it into real words on the screen rather than just a swirl of ideas in my head. This is how things look in my brain:
See? It’s just not that comprehensible. There are often times when I think “THIS IS HILARIOUS!” and then, by the time I get to a computer, somehow I’ve lost whatever it was that was so funny in the first place. And even when it is still funny for me, there is no guarantee that it’s equally funny to anyone else. (Or equally meaningful, or even equally understandable.)
I also, as you may have noticed if you are still reading this blog, suffer from an extreme lack of motivation. I like blogging, but I am not so good at the art of applying the seat of my pants to the seat of my chair, so to speak. (Isn’t Hemingway the one who said that the art of writing is “the art of applying the seat of one’s pants to the seat of the chair”? I think it was…)
The seat-pants connection is challenging for me, especially when it comes to blogging. I’m very good about reading blogs, but not so great about writing posts.
Between Seat-Pants Syndrome and Brain-Swirl Syndrome… quite honestly, friends, it’s shocking I ever manage to blog at all.
I'm working on it, though!
