I am writing my second blog today. However, like most people in town I have fallen prey to a writer’s greatest nightmare-The Writer’s Block. I have been stuck in blank space for over an hour now, just trying to cook up an idea to write about. So, I finally decided to put down in black and white, all that ran across my mind in the whole process of digging up something new.
My brain began gushing with all the feedback I received (feedback is just a refined word for “free advice/response) from the people who got to know that, I started a blog. Well, let’s be honest, I received the most peculiar responses in comparison to the amount of hope and excitement I wrote with. Some of them just laughed at the idea of me writing a blog, while others gave me instructions of what I should write about and what I must not. All this sudden “direction” that I received was extremely overwhelming initially, but over time I realized that this counterblast that I got, only instigated me to write something better.
Having recouped my somewhat ‘lost spirit’ after this brain wave, my mind flew to other blog topics that most of my friends wrote. My conviction to ‘stand out’ and write something ‘fresh’ began fading into a distance that might have been quite difficult to penetrate through, if not for a moment of “eureka” that I encountered that very moment.
Having thought about all of this thoroughly, I present to the world my second blog, with the most open acceptance of both compliments and criticisms that I truly believe will help me get better and better at a skill I wish to polish.
