I have been trying to write some posts lately but nothing seems to be coming out how I want it to (I have 9 unfinished drafts that have derailed). This is usually a sign of just not being in the writing mood, but I find myself wanting to write.
I have had a number of in-person conversations lately that have brought about topics that I would like to write about, I just haven’t been able to articulate what I want to. It’s a bit frustrating.
At times it feels like the posts that are the easiest to write are the ones where I am tackling topics directly, explaining something where I sense an obvious misunderstanding. This is easier when it happens in the blogosphere since I frequently believe that the person I am “writing to” will end up reading the post. For some reason I find this a lot more motivating than writing words that will never be read by my target audience. I’m not sure, really. It’s probably partly that and partly just a down mood.
In any case, I do hope to get back to posting soon, it just isn’t flowing yet.
