Much like waking up and going to the gym after a long absence can be difficult so is writing. I had been going pretty strong for a while, writing about one blog a week. Then the well ran dry.
I struggled with what to write about. I grasped at current affairs and how I felt about them, but they seemed to fly by so quickly and so did my feelings as the next one came into view. I thought if I could hone the blog down to a more specific topic or field then it might make it easier to come up with stuff to write about on a regular basis.
For months, friends have been asking about my blog. I don’t have a huge readership but they all know I want to write and were enjoying my output. I was enjoying it too. I guess I felt like it had to be more than just my random musings.
I’m very much a Jack of all Trades but Master of None. And that’s the way I like it. Variety is the spice of my life and after a short while, I lose interest in just one area. I’m much like the honey bee who flits from flower to flower. A little of this, a little of that. As Auntie Mame once quipped, “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!”
And just like getting back into an exercise routine, I’m going to take it easy on myself in the beginning. If I just keep at it, it might become exactly what it was meant to be.
