How hard can it be???

As I sit here trying to come up with something to write about, I’m finding it harder and harder to just get started.  I hate that feeling.  I know I just need to jump in and start writing, but that’s sometimes easier said than done.  So here I am, typing anything that comes to mind just to get myself writing.  It’s actually called Free Writing, and I used to do it all the time, but it just isn’t as easy as I remember it being.

I thought I’d go over to Facebook and see what I could find to write about, only to find myself lost in a sea of “feel sorry for me” status updates and silly shared posts.  Yeah, I had to get out of there.  It’s way too easy to get sucked in and forget what you’re actually trying to do.

Then I thought I’d check out some blog posts on places to make money writing.  Even though they’re all written by different people on different blogs, they’re all basically the exact same thing.

I’ve even checked out a few of those sites and studied their categories lists to see if something there would spark some type of creative juice, but no luck.  That stupid inner critic of mine kept telling me, “you don’t know enough about that one and no one wants to hear what you have to say about that one…”.  I swear, if I knew how, I’d slap the snot out of that inner demon of mine.

That’s when I said to hell with it, I’m just going to start writing.  Whatever comes out, that’s what I’m going with.  I’ve got to write something, anything, to get some feelings moving.  And it seems to be working…somewhat.  I knew that once I started writing, things would start to come out.  I have to keep reminding myself that it’s only as hard as I make it.  I have to push past the initial force field that seems to be blocking my brain and get my feet wet.  I know I can do this…how hard can it be?
