Write Like No One Is Reading

Thursday, June 8, 2017

Every single day, I sit in front of my computer and wonder what to write about, and I come up with nothing.  

Should I write about this, I wonder, but, what if someone takes offense? What if my writing isn't good enough? And who would want to read my blog anyway when there are a million other blogs out there? 
Should I write about this topic? I am not qualified enough to write on this topic. And what if they think I am being vain? And what if that person thinks it's about them. What if they judge me based on my writing? What if I'm not as funny as I think I am? Will people find me boring? 

These are the things that go through my head. Every single day, when I sit in front of my computer and wonder what to write about.

Dance like nobody is watching, they say. Maybe that applies to writing too. Write like nobody is reading. Twirl. Throw your hands up in the air. Twirl some more. Get on the table and dance.

Finish all the blog posts that's in the drafts. There might be someone who relates to it. There might be some one who may not agree with what you have to say. That opens a door for a conversation. And who doesn't love good conversations. So, it may not be a bad thing after all. When you write like no one is reading, you don't edit out or filter your voice. And that's what words are for. To put your thoughts on paper. Jut you and words. 

So, here I am, writing like no one is reading (maybe because there really IS no one reading?) I kid..I kid..
