But I don’t feel like it

September 7th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m sitting here staring at my computer screen. I know exactly what I want to write a blog post about, but the focus and urge to actually DO it isn’t there.

I keep glancing at the clock. One hour. I have one hour to get a post in to count for “today.” How can I write anything of substance in that amount of time? How can I truly give my topic the attention it deserves?

Some days are like that, I guess, and I can’t beat myself up for having a day of not wanting to give my blog the attention it deserves. I just can’t let that happen too many days in a row.

So here I am. Feeling a little over whelmed by my want to write, but lack of ability to write. Luckily, I know others go through it as well, and I hope those that have felt this way will commiserate and nod in understanding. You love what you do, but sometimes you find yourself fighting an internal battle with yourself.

Do it!

I can’t!

Yes you can!

Okay, I can, but I don’t feel like it!

What-EVER.

I find I write best when I feel like it. Better yet when I am feeling what I am writing. Feeling it makes what you are writing come to life much more, and when you feel it, your reader feels it. So here I am telling everyone, “I don’t feel like it!”

Yes, I am writing about not feeling like writing.

Anyone else confused right now?

    OMG cracking up. I was just thinking I should write something to post for today, but decided that I’d rather knit and play on farmville. It was a late night for me last night and a early morning. =) Have fun.

      LOL!!!! Exactly! I figured, I’ll just write about not wanting to write! It works!

    Ahhh….yes. I go through swings, and sometimes when I really feel like writing, I just punch out a bunch of things to mess around with when I dont “Feel like it” anymore. But writing about not wanting to write…lol that works too :-)

      LOL! I felt like I was totally cheating writing this entry! And yet in the same breath, it worked!!

      My goal is to get a good back log of blog drafts going for days like this. When I just don’t have an entry in me, edit one that is already written and fly with it. That is a definite goal… I’ll accomplish it… eventually. ;)
