Warning: Blogging creates “Zombie” like symptoms…..

on November 3, 2013

Have you ever had a head full of thoughts but yet no words to speak them?

It’s day 2 of 30 days of blogging and i find myself looking for something “catchy” to talk about. Usually when I’m driving I used that as time to think. Sometimes by the time I’ve reached my destination I wonder how I got there. This challenge is turning me into a zombie and I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m over thinking it.

Honestly I think my biggest problem is the pressure of an “audience.” It’s so easy to get caught up writing for “others” verses writing for yourself. I think that’s the problem with art. What good is it if no one likes it? You’re suppose to write because you love it and it makes you feel good but if its not what people want to read. Then you find yourself curving your passion for appeal. I guess that’s why there are so many “starving artists” because many people aren’t willing to “sell themselves” or their integrity for mainstream. I can respect that, but what’s wrong with wanting success? What’s wrong with having a few luxuries in life? Don’t we all want to take care of our families and shower our kids with pieces of the world? Don’t you want them to have the things in life you didn’t?
