Well it finally happened. I thought I had finished writing a blog post, when in actuality it ended abruptly. And I shared it.
I could go back and finish it. (I swear it was done!) Then re-share it. But in its failure, I find truth. I’m not always going to hit the mark. Perhaps yesterday’s blog post, Totes Inappropes, really wasn’t meant to be finished. I can learn from my experience of knowing that I screwed up. Now it’s out in the world. Chances are you didn’t read it. Chances are no one will read it. That’s what I keep telling myself in order to get past my little oopsie.
People who follow me, know that I’m back again day after day trying to write something of value. Sharing tidbits about what goes on in my life and mind. Nothing’s important, everything matters. Sure it does. It matters to me. I’m the one trying to get thoughts out. That’s important to me. I have created a daily writing goal that I hope will manifest into something much more grandiose.
I didn’t fail yesterday. At least not in the fact that my blog post wasn’t done. Perhaps I failed in the content and subconsciously I sabotaged myself. In the end, I probably won’t even go back to re-read it. Every few months I journey back to my previous posts. Some I enjoy how they flow or tell a story. Sometimes I enjoy the comedic undertones I somehow successfully snuck in. Some blog posts I skim over and think about how I could improve it. Maybe make a “Special Edition” of one of the more successful ones like what Lucas tried with Star Wars.
But in the end, I’m taking a shot at writing. I haven’t discovered the best technique or idea to focus on. Should I focus on family? Maybe conventions? Perhaps my work? I don’t know where my best writing lies. But I will find that niche and exploit the shit out of it if it makes me money!…
I meant- makes me happy.
