Pardon My Writing

Excuse me. Coming through. I apologize for crowding your Medium feed with my random thoughts. It’s just — my mind has been paralyzed lately.

For two years, I wrote every day, and ideas flowed like rain. I never, ever, ever had trouble coming up with a topic, starting an article, or finishing it. If I didn’t feel qualified to write about a subject, I learned the subject, and then continued to write the article. Sadly, writing for two years straight burns you out, no matter how motivated you are, and I was forced to take a break, but when I returned, I found that my ability to write was gone. Somehow fear had crept into my writing, and fear is the #1 cause of writing block.

Given that, I know that I must force myself to write, publish, and share something everyday, not for the common good, but for my own good. I admit that this is a selfish endeavor, but it is something I must do if I ever want to write again.

By sharing my work, I will expose my work, and leave it vulnerable, and with that, I will hopefully grow back the thick-skinned writing prowess I once had.

If, for some strange reason, you’d like to follow my writing, you can do so here.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
