Should I? Shouldn't I? : #IWSG
I'm kind of tired. It's not just the April Challenge. I was tired before that.
Maybe I'm blogging too much, but when it comes to making rounds visiting and commenting I feel like it's never enough. There are so many great blog posts to read, so many blog relationships to maintain, and so many things to learn about the art and science of blogging. It can easily become a full-time preoccupation.
Now I need to focus more on writing and income. Full-time blogging could involve both of those, but I still haven't figured out how to satisfactorily reconcile these elements into a situation that would provide personal fulfillment and a blog product that would effectively generate income.
No, the writing needs to be writing writing. I think you know what I mean. Blog writing is writing, but is it writing for the ages? I mean, it can be, but if it just stays hidden away in the bowels of cyberspace who will read it once it fades into the archives.
I suppose I can use the same argument if I finally finish a book and it fades into the obscurity of a listing on Amazon or some other purveyor of unknown literature. Who will read it?
Stop man! Don't speak with such self-defeat. You can do it. Someone will read it if you write it. Quit complaining and just get busy. What's the deal anyway?
Oh yeah, it's Insecure Writers Support Group day. More whiny writers can be found at Alex J's blog. Well maybe not as whiny as me. I guess you'll just have to go over and find out for yourself.
Have you felt whiny lately? What do you do when self-defeat starts rattling you door handle to try to intrude on your dreams?
