Day 3 Ramblings

 So I've been basking in reading blogs and replying with enjoyment.  I got so many ideas for writing my own until they all disappeared.  Where did they go? What happened?  I guess overload is the word.  But it was fun.  

"Stop reading and write your own." I told myself. But I didn't listen and kept reading and procrastinating.  Finally I made myself stop and start writing.  Ha, nothing happened.  I shuffled angel cards asking, "what do I blog about today?"  I pulled 3 cards, tried to photograph them and the whole thing felt Blah.  I put them back in the box and read some more blogs.  

"Ok enough already, WRITE!"  All right already, I'm writing. 

This reminds me of when I was writing Confession stories back in the 1980s.  I would be writing and another idea would pop into my head.  I stopped working on the story in front of me and started another story with the new idea.   Yes I did finish and sold a bunch but I ended up with a lot of unfinished stories too. I really don't want a pile of unfinished blog drafts now.  




Has this happened to any of you and how did you work through it and be productive?

I am glad I'm writing a blog for 30 days with you all even if not every one I write is not the best.  I love myself anyhow.

I've struggled with what to write about, but once I narrow it down it's not so bad. I was where you were yesterday though. I kept reading and reading and procrastinating on my own post. Finally though I got around to it.

I have a bunch of unfinished stories that I've started mostly during NaNoWriMo. A couple were begun randomly because an idea popped into my head, but still they too are unfinished. I don't know if I will ever finish them.

I’m finding it hard to find things to write, I’ve just got to get in the swing of it.

I love your parting comment “I love myself anyhow” . Very powerful!
