I brainstorm lists of blog topics. I have realized though that these lists are a black hole, an almost sure fire way to guarantee I never write about those topics.
I’m not as bad as I used to be but I backspace like I restart video games which is chronically.
I sit in front of the monitor for hours everyday. I really am a slow writer.
Admittedly, I can’t help but feel that the payoff isn’t always worth the effort.
I hardly know how to write short, unless it’s a list. All my ideas are grandiose.
In addition to my slowness, I have undiagnosed ADHD. If you watched me you’d understand what I mean. I am constantly distracted.
The internet doesn’t help but even in a quiet room on my word processor these same problems plague me. There I am likely to fall asleep.
I come up with an idea I’m really excited about and then hit a wall and don’t complete the post for several days because I want to get it right.
This usually means that my blog suffers as I don’t move on to something else.
However, sometimes I do move on. My WordPress dashboard is clogged with the partially completed drafts of my neglected ideas.
My plan every weekend is to write 5 complete posts for the new week. Typically, I manage only one.
I am never satisfied with anything I write in haste to fulfill my self-set standard of blogging daily.
Knowing this, I usually go to bed frustrated when I can’t get it together preferring to leave the task incomplete than to provide inferior content.
