So here’s a tricky problem I’ve come up against. I’ve been reading and following blogs for the last 10 months trying to learn from other writers’ experiences. Surprisingly it’s been a whole lot less useful than I thought it would be. I’ve found that for the most part instead of learning anything, I just end up with other people’s opinions as my own. I compare myself to other people more. I listen to myself less. And I quickly forget about the great things that make me, me (because everyone else just seems so much more cooler!).
I’ve come to a point where I am exhausted of hearing other people talk about themselves. I need a break from being told what to do and how to do it. I deleted most of the blogs I was following.
And here’s the funny part. I’m not just tired of everyone else, I’m tired of listening to myself talk about myself too. It kind of cracks me up.
Ah well – that has been the point of this blog. To push myself past the hard bits.
So, the question is: How the heck do I write about myself now when the last thing I want to write about is myself? How’s that for a challenge?
Never give up. Never, never give up! We shall go on to the end. -Winston Churchill
