I have trying to post more frequently and had little trouble until today. Today I stalled and here is why:
“I am having trouble writing my blog today,” I confided to a friend. “It’s because everything I know right now is… well, it’s vile! All I know is all this stuff that is completely appalling and I am just not sure I should hit people with it.”
She seemed to agree.
“Yeah, I don’t know why I am being shown such a steady diet of stuff so thoroughly disgusting but I am and I just think I should understand this better than I do at the moment before I go trying to write. Because everything I have to say now would be raw and scathing and I am not sure this suits my blog at the moment. Hopefully things will become better refined. I just think if I am going to bring this stuff up I need to have a good understanding exactly why I am doing it. You need a reason to inflict this on people and I don’t have one at the moment so I am forced to contain and process this privately which is okay. But unfortunately it cost me a down day on the blog.”
Do you ever have to pull your horns in?
