For example, I am wondering why the heck I bother to blog. I often feel like I have nothing to say that will be considered remotely important to anyone and feel that by trying to say what is on my mind regarding my perspectives on the writing world, that I am opening myself up for the roll-the-eyes-what-a-noob-sighs. I just don’t feel like I have the credentials yet to open my mouth. Yet, here I am, babbling like an idiot anyway.
I read Twitter often, much more than I jump in and comment, and bounce from blog to blog to blog thinking “So that’s what real honest to goodness Authors blog about!” I sit here in envy, being a non-Author, only the creator of a Fan Fic, an unpubbed novella, and a few miserable poems…so of course I have nothing to blog about right? I certainly don’t want to copycat someone else’s blog, so there goes XYZ topic, as well as ABC topic too.
So what can I blog about?
What does someone like me write about?
Anything I want. Take that Free Speech!
Just kidding…sorta…but seriously, even as an unpublished Author, I can relate to the trials and tribulations of entering writerhood…the rejection letters, the odd hours writers work with, the necessity for candy at all times, and the mysteries of plot twists that aren’t so twisty.
Yeah, maybe not a lot of people who already have credentials want to read my little bloggy blog, but I am doing something…I am writing and letting everyone who does accidently click on this page know about it...and that I understand. Totally. Perfectly.
By the way…my WIP plot just got a little twistier.
