I've experienced writer's block a number of times in my life. In fact, I'm sure most of us book lovers-cum-aspiring authors have dealt with this in our lives. But I've never had 'Blog Block' until now. I've sat and stared at the blank page for a long time today wondering what to post. I have a master list with all my ideas for tags and discussions but none of them are grabbing me. I just don't know what I want to share.
So what do I do? I write about how I don't know what to write about. I guess this is my way of saying "HA!" to my block. "You won't stop me posting on my normal schedule". It's also a way for me to make sure I keep writing. Because sometimes that's what you have to do. No matter how much you think there is nothing in you to type out and share with the world, you just have to put something on the page. 90% of those things will never be shared, but it opens your mind back up and sometimes just letting words flow is the best way to go about writing.
That's what I'm doing today. I've not thought this out, I don't have a rough outline for where this post will go. Is it a "how to get over writers block" post? Is it a "oh my god I don't know what to write" rant? I don't know yet. I'm just sitting here, on my bed, exhausted and in a bit of a bad mood because I didn't have a post scheduled for today like usual, and writing whatever comes to my head.
I guess I'm just in the mood to share my thoughts and feelings today. I'm just not in the mood to write about how I'm finally tackling my TBR and catching up to my Reading Challenge on goodreads (I've gone from 12 books behind schedule to 8 in about 3 days!). There's a lot going on right now. A lot of stress and worry and I'm trying to keep myself from boiling over. I'm focusing on the positive things I have going on - like my first event on Friday; which I'll admit I am super nervous for but I'm also really excited! I don't know what I'm going to post on Friday either. I haven't felt passionate enough about the books I've read recently to warrant a review but perhaps I will discuss some of my recent reads on Friday.
I'm not going to ramble on for paragraphs just reiterating what I've already told you about not having a blog post idea I feel I can write at the moment so I'm going to end it there and get back to kicking this reading challenge's butt. Hopefully.
If inspiration strikes, I may share an additional post this week to make up for today's lack of bookish enthusiasm but I make no promises! Right then... I think it might be time for a nap!
