The fabulous thing about having your very own blog that you host and just put out there, is that it doesn’t matter what drivel you want to write about – you don’t have to hold yourself accountable to anyone. Not a boss. Not a soul. Only yourself.
It doesn’t matter if anyone reads it, or not. Although most writer’s ego’s would prefer that they are being read and acknowledged.
It is such a great feeling to have that creative release that one can write whatever they damn well want to – within reason – and just put it out there!
To the universe – and beyond!
I often think of interesting topics to write about as they meander through my head while I am otherwise engaged. And what I have learned about myself and this blog-venture is that if I don’t write an article soon after I am inspired by it, it’s gone. The very spirit, the very gossamer of the idea, is gone.
I have learned to write down the titles of the would-be blog-articles. And perhaps an introductory line or two, to help me remember the spirit in which it was first intended.
But if I don’t make the time to carry out the thought process and put my mini-laptop to good use – it’s gone, like the spirit in the sky.
And I have some damn good titles, too. Like, “Even Oprah Has Bad Days”, after reading that someone tried to sue that incredibly inspiring lady. That would have been a good blog-ticle, I am sure!
Another would-be topic, “Lock On”, after a moving experience traversing the Big Chute marine railway with our new-to-us, very large boat. It was like flying through the air – it sent chills down my spine, goosebumps to my arms, and brought tears to my eyes.
So, I have made a resolution to myself to try to write down the spirit of the entire blog-ticle in which it is intended, as soon as I possibly can after a topic comes into my head.
Because who knows where creative inspiration comes from. Sometimes it happens at the strangest times. Suddenly something will just pop into my head and I have no idea where it came from. Surely makes you think there is a higher power out there.
And so, to all, I say, write on!
