Oh Crap

I sat down last night, just me, my iPod and my computer and drafted not one, not two, but three blog posts. I deleted them all, because, well, they all sucked the big one. Really really sucked. I wouldn't bother reading them, and it's my blog! Oh crap. Apparently I have bloggersblock. Please advise how I can shake the disease.

This one worked.

Hey, look at me. I don't care if my posts suck.

Of course, I have Real Life Block that keeps me from all but the most cursory posting.

So, Cats.

I get block frequently. The first method I tried, "not blogging anything until it is good enough" resulted in a long break. The quality of those posts? Shit.

1) Just keep blogging. Write what you can at the time what you usually blog and hit publish. Spruce it up with a pic from somewhere.

2) Email yourself with ideas from work. For instance:

"Dear vonnie: The Pickles Girls were talking about Sammies in the elevator again. This time, one dropped her sammie and had a temper tantrum. Her bad moment gave me a chuckle.

Love,
Vonnie"

This can be dropped into a post or be the foundation for a new post.

3) Tool around the web and look for something that interest you. Blog about it.

And what posts would those be?

I recommend poop jokes.

Random word associations also work to get you writing. And you read so much - it's always fun to read other peoples' book reviews, esp. really negative or really positive ones.

And lists. Lists are always good.

I stopped blogging altogether due to this issue. I miss it. Not you - just keep going!

I would scale you if I wasn't so damn tired.

I say I'm taking a break and then the floodgates open... sometimes for better or worse...

Did someone say ZRM and posts in the same sentence??

OK, you all come up here and do my work, and I will post until you're all barfing on posts.

sweet smelling fish guts, I can even muster a half-decent Zardoz....

Von said...

Don't make me come up there!!! ;)
I luv Zombie posts.
Thanks for the ideas and stuff.
We'll see.
I'm taking this week off, hope to do something worthwhile next week.
