Writing

I know this is very pretentious. I think I have writer's block. It's been very hard for me to think of something to say here, especially since I'm trying to be more positive, to stop complaining about the administration in Washington and the state of the country in general. It's not easy.

At first I thought that the novelty of blogging was wearing off, but then I'm starting to have trouble with the creative writing group. For the last meeting I couldn't think of anything to write until the morning of the meeting. For tomorrow's meeting I couldn't think of anything either.

Our suggested topic is an Aha Moment. Finally, a little while ago I had an idea and was able to put 300 words together to describe the moment I realized that it's OK to go somewhere and do something alone.

Of course I didn't come to this realization by myself. I had been pushing my son to attend a cooking event with me. He finally agreed, but asked what would be wrong with going alone. Since that day, I've become more comfortable doing things and going places as a solo. Maybe too comfortable.

Back to my original problem. Have you ever found yourself with nothing to say?

Oh hell yes! I've been known to post "I got nothin'!" on my blog along with a pretty picture. Ebb and flow, ebb and flow.

Yes, I think we all get it eventually. However, if my blog were totally anonymous I'd never run out of things to say.

There is nothing wrong with complaining about gov issues. Sometimes I miss things and other times it is good to know I am thinking the same as another person. Just keep going, I like to read your posts. Linda
