Blogging About Not Blogging
Haven't felt much like blogging in a couple of days. I sit infront of the screen & can't think of anything to write.
Is it that I get writer's block when am feeling happy?So it would seem. I think for me writing is an outlet for my worries, fears & frustrations more than anything else.
So now I know am the kind of person who only feels like writing when in doubt or pain or resentment. During periods of peace & happiness I stay away from writing because it causes me to overexamine & overanalyze & so find some things to worry about. I try to make my rare periods of serenity & not thinking too much last as long as possible.
Been reading a lot of blogs lately & I can sense am not the only one. You see very few personal posts about happy things. The overwhelming majority are critical or frustrated or worried or unhappy in tone.
Tried to post a few times & everytime I manage to say that I am pleased. Pleased is the exact word. What I feel is pleasure. But then there is no more to say.
Why is it that a post that starts "I am pleased" is so difficult to finish whereas a post that starts "I am scared" or "So-and-So is making me angry" would go on forever?
