Write, right? Write!

Take a shot every time you read the word “write/writing.”
When I write a blog post…
I start to write a post and I LOVE IT, I think it’s so great. I write bullet points about the things I want to say and save little quotes and stories to help me. I put these ideas down in the notes on my phone, in my notebooks during class, or on the first piece of paper I see. I can only think about when I’ll have the opportunity to write the entire post. When I get home and begin to write…I hate it. I completely hate it. I think whatever the current topic I’m writing about is honestly the dumbest thing, nobody is going to care and they would never take the time to read what I have to say. I try to continue but my mind goes completely blank, I give up and shut my laptop.
After a week of hating the blog I finally start writing again and then, my brain starts to think of a million different topics or stories that I could be writing about instead of the post that I am currently trying to finish. My mind starts spiraling and I have 850 different thoughts pin-balling in my head and I can’t keep my original thoughts straight. I literally have to stop what I’m writing to write down these other “great ideas” that I have and it’s just a mess. I think, this blog sucks, no one is going to think this is creative or funny, the only person that is going to read this is my mom, my high school english teacher is going to be so disappointed with all these grammatical errors, and I should probably quit and I honestly why did I ever start a blog. For example, this blog, this CURRENT blog… the one you are reading RIGHT NOW, I hate it (we will see if it ever gets posted or sentenced to the drafts) seriously… thought it was cute, might delete later. idk.
If there is, or was a point to this blog it is that I am NOT a professional blogger, this site is simply for fun, and maybe one day I’ll get it together.
These are just some tips and tricks I try to stick by while I embark on this blogger journey :-).
Write down your thoughts ALWAYS. No matter what it is, where you are, or who you are with, the second an idea, topic, title, or story comes to you… write it down! Notes app is the best app!
When you have free time, just write. Short, long, meaningful or not, just write.
Post it! You’re not going to know what your blog is going to be about until you continue to write, post and share.
Consistency is key 🙂
Make deadlines for yourself. It helps, I promise!
Write what you want, what you feel, and don’t worry about anyone else… your mom will always think it’s amazing. :-))))))))
