I’m blocked. I wish I wasn’t, but clearly I am. I love to write and when I’m inspired I can write a blog post in 10 minutes flat. But sometimes, its like pulling teeth. I’d rather not write crap, but lately I’ve been in a writing rut and its been really hard to sit down and type like the wind.
What do I do? Its everyday life that inspires me for topics. But I guess lately I’ve just been too busy and stressed to see the comedy that everyday life provides. So now what? How do I reignite the passion?
Maybe I’m thinking about you too much. It was easier to write when I didn’t think anyone would read what I had written. But now those stats loom and the number of very nice people like you that actually read this thing is going up. It was one thing when I thought I was simply entertaining my Mom (Hi Mom!). But now that strangers are reading this, I feel a little exposed and self-conscious. Well, then why did I start posting a blog anyways? Right? Geez. I’m like Kim Kardashian complaining about paparazzi. C’mon lady, get over yourself.
Maybe that is the answer. Stop Kardashian-ing. Stop thinking about anyone else. Keep looking for the funny in the monotony of daily life and remember why I like to write rather than trying to write what people want to read? Well, then I’m off to go find a good fart joke to inspire me…
