I have been struggling with producing content for this blog because even if my life was eventful, I felt like there really wasn’t anything I could write where the words were accurate, and the writing true. So when I randomly stumbled upon a writing workshop on Instagram, #15DaysOfWritingTrue, I went and took it. I was banking on the universe lending out a helping hand in pushing me to work on releasing my creative juices. Since this blog is a curation of life experiences I want to remember, I will be sharing all the things I produce during the workshop.
Before we started writing true, we had to make a list of reasons why we aren’t already. And here’s what I came up with:
- I don’t feel like the appropriate words come out when I write. I don’t feel like I convey what I really truly mean. What’s in my head does not translate well into paper.
- I don’t feel motivated most days. I’d sit there and the words just won’t come out.
- I’m afraid that my writing is mediocre and the words I use are repetitive and worn out.
- I have the time and I can make time to write. But I’m afraid that actually doing so will reveal that it’s actually not good enough.
I know most of it is repetitive. But having written them down on paper is actually pretty helpful because I realized that most of it stem from fear of not being good enough, and that’s an entirely different issue altogether. Here’s to hoping that I get over this soon!
