Do you ever have something planned out and then you go to write and you take a step back and realise it is a pile of shite? For me that’s this blog.
The problem is I have all the motivation in the world, I just don’t have any ideas. I have never been diagnosed with OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) but I’m pretty sure I have a tiny bit within me. I hate odd numbers and I love routine and everything in my life to fit into place. So the thought of finishing college, getting a full time job and then every day being able to come home to this blog, it physically excites me.
Which is where I have the motivation. But considering I’ve been a creative writing student for the last two years, I’m not the most creative unfortunately.
As well as showing people my talent in how I write and the variety of topics I can write about, this blog is also a challenge for me. To research, to plan, to redraft and redraft. To get used to the way the writing world works.
The other problem I have is we live in a society where follows, likes etc. are more important than ever and half the time I decide not to post something due to my paranoia. The more I look at my writing the worse it looks and I then don’t feel comfortable posting it.
I’m sorry for this post not being as exciting as I would have liked, I’m just letting you know that for the first few days possibly weeks I may be a bit rusty in how I will run this blog.
