Writing about writing

Hey there. Its me. Just blogging randomly off the top of my head. Those of you who visit my blog regularly know  the prospect isn't quite as scary as it sounds, but can be more difficult.

I've started and stopped this blog numerous time. Deleted text and pictures. At the moment, focus is my problem. And content. I suppose I've read enough about having quality blogs, so I worry that no one would want to read the crap in my brain.

But I'm doing this blog anyway. Sometimes just writing is what it takes to get my groove back. In all my prayer about what gifts I'm supposed to be using for God's glory, I know writing is one of those. 

Will I ever get to the point in my life where I can make statements like the one above and not feel as if I'm bragging on myself or being arrogant? 

So here I am, laying on a partially deflated air mattress, using a rolled up hoodie as a pillow. Metaphorically speaking. Here I am, a little deflated myself, but willing to pause for a moment to give you a picture into my world.

Do you have any tips for getting back to writing (or any hobby you've been away from just long enough to feel a bit rusty)? Do you prefer goofy randomness or an attempted to be focused?

Linking up with Jaime and the rest of the Stream of Consciousness weekend crew.



  1. For me, I think it is a matter of just doing it every day for a while. Set a timer and write for 30 a journal, on your blog, on a napkin! :-) I did The Artists Way years ago and she suggested 3 pages in a notebook every morning. It's a way of jump starting the process, getting the juices flowing, etc. Best of luck to you, sister!!

  2. I'm a fan of random goofiness. And running posts. Are you doing any fall races??

  3. I just do it. Sorry, I wish I had a more in depth answer!
    PS - I like to hear whats rambling in your brain. :)

  4. As someone who has only posted three times this month (I think), I have absolutely no advice. I need to READ some advice!!
