perfectionI keep trying to slap a post together, and it’s not happening. I want to write more often but when I spend one hour at lunchtime and two hours at night working on my other writing project, there’s not a lot of creativity left for the blog.

I have several posts that I’ve begun and set aside when they didn’t turn out how I wanted them to. They either wandered and had no point to them and were impossible to wrap up and end or they made no sense whatsoever. Sometimes if I’m in a mood, I start writing and the post ends up being this maudlin, feeling sorry for myself whine. I don’t want to post that stuff all the time or people will start to worry about me!

It’s hard being a perfectionist. When I don’t agonize over what I’m writing and I quickly throw it out there, I’ll re-read and re-read it and wonder why the heck I posted it in the first place. I don’t think I’ve ever removed something once I posted it. I may have edited, but I usually go with it. It is what it is.

I write what I write, but I do wonder sometimes what people think. I wish I could be a daily blogger, but I won’t post if I don’t have something to say that interests me. If it doesn’t even interest me, it sure as heck isn’t going to interest anyone else! I don’t post for the sake of posting (like this post!!). I tried that, and it doesn’t work for me. The posts are forced and lame. They’re not interesting, and they’re certainly not funny.

And, here’s another post that’s rambled and has no ending in sight, but I will post it anyway. Enjoy your day, everyone!
