I don’t know what to write.
I promised myself that I’d be more consistent, that I’d post to this site twice per week, in order to have more of a flow of content. Consistency is key, but with a growing headache and a bit of fatigue, my original idea for today’s is stuck over on Writer’s Block Lane.
And it’s an important one, so I’ll let it sit.
So here I am, typing away about how I don’t know what to write. There’s this old trick with blocks, to just be honest with yourself and let the words flow. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t, but at the very least, I’m putting words on the page.
The thing is, I’m shifting and molding my brand. Part of this is just accepting that I can’t pick just one thing- hell, my eyes can’t even pick a single color and went with three- so I’ve merged my various creative endeavors into this one site. It makes sense, but I’m still figuring out what it is that I’ll write about on here, and have it be consistent.
But I don’t want to consistently not post, either.
Part of my writing portion of my brand is honesty. I’ve written posts for various sites, with the most notable ones being on Elephant Journal, and they’ve always been about personal experience. Perhaps this post goes along with that message. In all honesty, I have it on my to-do list today to write a post for this blog, and I’m writing regardless of the block, regardless of the lack of ideas that have come to mind.
Don’t get me wrong. I have a long list of things I want to cover on this blog. Some of them need permission from others who I’d discuss within a post, and others simply need to sit and simmer a bit longer.
Every so often, my brain wants to take this post to a deeper place. I’m writing as things come to mind, as I admit what I’m going through, and part of my thought process is to somehow make it a metaphor. As in, “maybe there’s beauty in unknowing” or “talk about how being authentic is key.”
But in the spirit of honesty- today, it’s not that deep.
Those are topics I can cover at some point, because they’re things I believe in, but I’m not going to cover them today. Today I’m simply going to show up and continue in the tradition of honesty.
