I can’t stop writing!

I have been blogging for about two weeks now.  I don’t have a schedule as to when I will upload each week, or as it has been lately, each day.  Once I get it out of my mind, I just want to publish it!  I realize however, I am going to eventually have to moderate it, because there will come a time when I don’t have anything to say. (What? Can that happen?)

I was just reading a post yesterday, about the worries of expressing yourself to the world and how much should be kept quiet.  What do you do when you just have so much to say?  The post I was reading was titled Back to the basics: Why I started blogging by Michelle Makwala.  Most of us can relate to her post.  The link to her blog is at the bottom of this page.  It’s a good read.

Sometimes, when I start writing, other topics, ideas and issues pop in to my head.  I don’t want to lose those ideas so I stop what I am writing about, save it as a draft, then start a new post with a new title.  I write a bit in that post and save it as a draft so I can come back to it later.  I continue doing this until my head is free and clear, all out of ideas, well, for the moment anyway.

I have had up to six drafts waiting for me to finish.  Right now I have two that have been sitting for almost a week.  I guess I am not in the mood to write about those things right now, the time will come when I will finish my post.  Generally I like to wait a day to post it for everyone to see, so I can read over it and make sure I like how it sounds and am comfortable with the topic at hand.   Sometimes I can’t wait and publish immediately.  Patience is important here, you don’t want to publish a topic and later wish you hadn’t!

I am getting braver with the content I write about and really take extra time to make sure I’m ready.  It doesn’t hurt to have a few unfinished drafts in your pile to draw from when you are dry.

Here is the link to Michelle’s Blog.  I hope you take the time to read it.

  1. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. You want to enjoy what your writing, and not have it become a chore or worse… a job. What usually helps me, is that I keep notebooks everywhere. I know that seems extreme, but I keep notes all over the place as well as my phone.
    You’re doing very well and remember to enjoy the process. 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog 😊 I agree with beckiesmentalmess.WordPress.com, don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Think of your blog as your bestfriend that you come to at the end of the day to share all the fun and interesting things that you’ve discovered. I trust that will put you at ease with your content.
