Part of the issue is that I don't feel like I have much to write about. Oh, I have ideas for books and short stories out the wazoo--but a blog post? Suddenly, my creative self is terrified and lost. I'm not sure what it is about blogging that does it, but it's definitely an incentive for procrastination.
Another part of the issue is that I hate writing about myself. I've tried to journal on and off for years and find myself to be whiny and insufferable more often than not (hopefully, this is just overly-harsh judgement of myself, but I'm not about to ask). I don't find myself terribly interesting or entertaining--all of that is a characteristic of my fiction. Truth be told, I would generally rather wax poetic about my characters or whine about my plot than talk about almost anything regarding my actual life. Terrible, no-good, very bad days excepted.
I'm sure there are other facets of the blogging issue that I'm not looking at right now, but those are the two biggies, I think. I'm not entirely sure how to get around either of them, but I know this is a thing I need to do.
Maybe I'll take a page from my friend Michelle's book and start posting un-edited fiction now and then. Maybe I'll try and find some prompts and use those to inspire posts (anyone have any suggestions?). I don't know yet. But I know I need to get better about this, somehow.
I'm open to suggestions; if you've got any, send them my way!
