I love to write. Wait, let me rephrase that… I love when an idea comes to me and I get the delicate task of putting it into words. The words I choose to express. The picture I paint with them. The hope that I might be able to make someone else really feel what I mean and possibly get it. That’s the part of writing that I love. Conveying an idea that maybe nobody’s ever taken the time to consider or capturing a thought they’ve already had and connecting with them. That’s what my hope is when I blog. By putting it here, I give flight to the things inside me that need to be released or they’ll flutter endlessly inside me. When I feel like I’ve accomplished that, that’s when I love writing.
So why don’t I post more often? Simple. More times than not, my inspiration for a post comes from a song. They lyrics, the music, they help evoke the story I’m trying to tell. Like a soundtrack to a movie. They push, prod and pull it out of me until I feel like it’s done. I guess that’s why almost all my posts are song titles. Music creates a comfortable backdrop to share freely. But what do you do when you’ve heard it all and felt it already? The battle I’ve been facing lately is where I do I find my muse when I’m sick of all my music? How do I write more often when my creativity can’t be uncorked?
And so I started wandering around Wordpress and saw they had a topic of the day aiding you in posting every single day. Every day! Wow. That’d be a serious stretch for me and would you people even read it all? I was doubtful. Then I stumbled onto this article, a 30 day song challenge. It makes me curious. Could this be the solution to my posting problem? I’m not sure but I’m willing to give it a go. A way to connect to the songs I already love and possibly stumble across ones waiting for my adoration. Interesting idea. Challenge accepted.
