Looking For A Reason

quill & ink & paper

I don’t know anything about inspiration because I don’t know what inspiration is; I’ve heard about it, but I never saw it. (William Faulkner)

Every morning, every day I think about what the subject would be to write a post about.  Sometimes I wake up with a thought in mind, the rest of the time I brainstorm my thoughts.

I am looking for the elusive “inspiration”, which for the most part seems to be an exercise of futility.

I am not an author, I will probably never have a book published.  Writing was my weak point in English in high school.  For exams I would freeze up, my mind would go blank. Oh, I knew the subject, made notes, studied the required reading for the next day, but, I would just draw a blank on the exams.

I read how some here in the WordPress community work on posts for days.  Some start writing only to delete it, I am of the latter on that style of writing.

I consider myself a successful if I manage to actually sit down to write a post on my blog.  My writing go in spurts,  sometimes I find myself able to write for days consecutively.  Then it seems like someone turned off the spout to where there is not as much as a trickle.

I know it would be useless to try to copy someone else method to finding inspiration because I must be myself, honest, and with transparency.

Then there are days where my mind is cluttered with useless thoughts, a jumble mess of words that do not seem to have any logical pattern.

However, I do find energy when you as a reader leave your thoughts in the comment section.

So, this is my day of how I look for a reason to write!

    Most of my posts are a jumbled mess of nonsensical thoughts 😀 Sometimes those are the ones that are most relatable
