Everyday, my mind is divided into two things – thinking about writing and real life. With so much going on around me, what with 4 kids and all, you’d think I’d have a lot of inspiration to write about. Right?
Nope. Everything just gets jumbled up in my head. Most times, the first few lines actually forms in my thoughts and I even imagine myself typing it… Then I have to do something for someone and I forget all about what could’ve been an awesome post.
The thing is, I know I can write. I’ve read some of my writings back in college, and I hardly recognized them as my own because they were so good. Why can’t I write like that again?
It can’t be because I have to be in the mood or the environment be just right – because some days, I just end up staring at the blank screen, until it’ s time to go to sleep.
I feel like I have so much to say! I want to be heard! I have a voice! Why won’t anything come out when I want it to?!
I enjoy blogging because it’s all about writing. But I struggle. So much. And I don’t really know why. And that is the hard part. Not knowing why.
Am I not in the right niche?
Do I even have a niche?
My content sucks?
I don’t talk about relevant things?
Maybe I’m boring?
I’m not snarky.
I’m not funny.
I’m not inspirational.
I’m not genuine.
I’m not me.
How do other writers do it? How do they make the words flow and capture the reader? How do they make it all look so damn easy???
I want to write.
But it seems…I don’t really know how.
Any advice for this struggling writer?
Sometimes, my children are more than willing to be my photography subjects. I tell them to strike a pose, and they do. The results are always interesting, yet not so surprising – at least for this momma. The eldest went for... Continue reading →
I’m taking a super quick break from mothering by writing this post. Wait, actually, moms never take a break from mothering, do we? While my fingers are flying on these keys and my mind is scrambling for the words… my ears... Continue reading →
I’ve always admired my husband for his physical strength. Even though sometimes I wish he’d use his workout time in the evenings to do other things (like wash the dishes), I secretly like it that he takes the time to... Continue reading →
This is my 3rd child, 1st son, when he was about 10 months old. I just found this in my archives and I’m posting it because he looks just like his younger brother, my 4th child, 2nd son. The similarities... Continue reading →
My kids don’t fully realize yet just how lucky they are to still have their great-grandmother in their lives. And God willing, may she grace us with her presence for many more years to come. Continue reading →
The 4th of July is upon us. I feel like summer barely started and it’s already July! Some people will opt to stay home and do the traditional backyard BBQ. (That’ll be us!) We’ll just watch the fireworks on TV,... Continue reading →
Since having my baby, I haven’t had the will to sit and read through any book. That’s almost 7 months, folks! With all the busyness and stress that comes with having an infant, plus 3 more kids, I couldn’t justify... Continue reading →
No, this post is not about the daytime drama that was so popular in the 90s. I never watched it, but it was popular enough that even I knew of its existence back then. This post is about, literally, when... Continue reading →
They’ve been waiting for ages…to go outside and use this water table that had been sitting inside our home, nice and dry, since it came in the post. And although we’re on drought alert, I’ve decided that this wasn’t really... Continue reading →
