These first three lines are how my brain works when I sit down to write:
My mind is swirling with thoughts as I stare at this blank space, and in a few moments it won’t be so blank..ah snap, I just used passive voice…ugg, it doesn’t sound right.
Hmm, okay. I shared in my last post that I’d just lost my mother, and things have been, well, difficult. Some days better than others, and a million thoughts have gone through my mind concerning a new post. Nope, don’t like that beginning either…next…
I need chocolate to help this thought process…mmm, much better…where was I?
I read a bootie load of posts from blogs, and have shared some of those blogs that are super successful with you. If you missed a few click here. I love sharing information that will help you become a better writer and achieve your goals. It amazes me how successful some of these blogs are, like crazy money and hits and visitors and….and…And, sometimes they share about who they are, where they came from, but most of the time it’s all business. That’s great! I love it. But, a little confession, I rarely read the entire post. I skim over it, yes, and it’s valuable, but it’s dry. Please don’t tell anyone I just said that. They really are fantastic blogs.
Onward…I’ve read posts about developing your niche, your business website, if you brush your hair to the left more people will hire you (not really), ways to market and advertise etc. I’ve left myself in such a crazy scramble of things I need to do, that I’ve paralyzed myself from moving forward. I’m afraid I can’t succeed because I don’t own a website, and I don’t have my shorts on Amazon (short stories, not basketball shorts) or for sale on my site. (I will, after I grieve and heal from mom passing and the house renovations are complete. I have that novel stirring in me, and it will also come out.) Honestly, I don’t even know my niche. I love writing. I write stories about real life crap that no one wants to talk about like physical abuse and mentally ill parents.
After mom passed, I realized that I need to be still inside myself, write what I feel from my heart and encourage others. So, some of my posts will offer great tips and sites, and sometimes I am going to let you into my world. So, if you’re interested stick around.
Until Next Time…
