I already know, you don’t have to rub it in…getting back to blogging every day is hard. I feel like it’s more difficult for me to come up with material, and maybe I’m just trying too hard.
So, here I am sitting here at work trying to figure out what to write about. Again.
I’ve got a lot of good things going right now, and I know of some ideas I need to flesh out as the beginning of February has finally come. This thought came to me yesterday:
It’s hard to create when forced to.
What I mean is, when I’m sitting there and really trying to force something creative to come out of me, be it a poem, blog post, vision for a photo or video, it can be difficult for me to conjure anything up. I’d rather just let the creativity flow out of me naturally than to try to come up with something just because. That isn’t to say I’ve never created anything by making myself sit there and generate something, but I find that a lot of the time it isn’t as good. Or maybe it just isn’t as good to me.
And I feel like there’s a difference between making an effort and forcing it. You can put effort into something creative without really squeezing the creative juices out of you to the point of frustration, or having your work feel forced. I guess I’m just trying to get back to that point with my blogging. And maybe I’ve just got so many other things going through my mind right now that trying to come up with something to blog about is just the last thing I’m concerned about.
Some days it’s easy, and other days, it’s a struggle. These past couple of days seem to be more on the struggle side. So, how about a little help? Please?
What would you like to read about? What topics should I write on? Would you want more personal, day-to-day ideas, or thoughts on what’s happening in the world?
Would definitely love some suggestions in the comments, so let me know!! 😊
