Challenging Your Writing

Blogging is easy for me. In an attempt to start shaking up my writing, I decided to start doing a writing workshop and trying some new writing prompts. Trying to get my blog back up in shape has been harder than I thought it would be. I am feeling like writing again, but I need variety.

It has been fun trying new topics. Still, I was always picking the safe ones. This week, the list came to my inbox and the one I was instantly drawn to was of course the easy one. However, there was another prompt that was nagging at me. "What I lack"

Here is the deal: I don't want to always write about negative stuff. This would be a negative blog. That wasn't the worst of it. I knew it was a topic I would have a hard time putting into words. I don't want to be misunderstood, but I am just  not sure how to put some of these feelings in words I kept trying to convince myself it wasn't a good idea. I just couldn't shake it.

I wrote the blog. It is far from the best thing I have written. It doesn't really say what I want it to say. It is  start, but it isn't something I am 100% sure I like. I shared it, but without feedback I can only use my best judgement: Do I keep working on it or do I just delete it.

I keep going back and forth on it. I'm still undecided. Part of me just wants to wipe it out and start over. Another part wants me to just keep adjusting.

For now, I keep adjusting. Maybe eventually I will get it right...and I am so going to crank out some fluff posts over the next couple days.

I looked for your lacking post, but couldn't find it. I'm sure it was good, it's just hard to put yourself out there to be vulnerable! I love reading your thoughts:)
Thank Laura! I took it down last night work work on it and then got distracted. It will be back up soon!
