Keeping it Real: blogging

I haven’t written for awhile. At least nothing personal. I’ve thought about. I have lots of ideas. And that’s where it stops. I pull up the web browser (do we even still use that term anymore?). I log in. I type. Delete. Type again. Delete. Fingers type. Save as a draft. I have 3 posts in draft. I just can’t get them to come together.

I’m not depressed. It’s not depression that’s keeping me from writing.

It’s quality. I want quality. I am aware that quantity will create traffic to my blog and then I could utilize advertising or sponsoring. But I need quality. I demand quality from myself.

So if the post doesn’t flow out from my thoughts, through my fingers into words and paragraphs that I can be proud of; it gets saved as a draft until I am proud of it.

Unless I do a “keeping it real” post. Then it’s what comes out, as it comes out. The only editing is spelling and grammar because quality is still important. I’m not going to pull a full out Faulkner and leave out punctuation, as much as I can appreciate true stream of consciousness writing. Although, why limit myself. Okay, make that 4 posts in drafts because one dedicated to Faulkner could be really fun.

Back to quality.

Quality takes time. I like to research. I like to give credit where credit is due, so pulling together my resources is important to me. I like to make sure I’m sharing truth, as I understand it.

Thank you for your patience. Thank you for visiting my journal. Thank you for not being critical of my writings.

  1. Came to your blog while looking at chakra art. I did the same thing in regards to attempting to paint them at one time, in oils. I did hard line and each one took many moons 🙂 . If i knew how to send a pic here i would. possibly i’ll try your email after.
    Anyway, you come across as sincere, from the heart as “they” say.
