Blog Fog ~ The New Writer’s Block

September 8, 2009 at 1:42 am 7 comments

I will totally come clean and  divulge that having my very own blog is scary. At first the idea seemed dreamy, poetic and even romantic.  Topics raced through my head, my imagination jumping for literary joy and my wheels of creative genius spinning out of control.  But as I sat down to begin this first ever personal blog, the fog rolled in.  Some may refer to it as writer’s block. I will affectionately call it blog fog.

It’s as if a huge  cloud of fog  moved inside my head,  preventing me from using my  natural ability to create and tell stories.  I told myself  “breathe, Jayne, breathe.  It’s  stage fright and first night jitters.” I asked myself, “what if my blog isn’t worthy? What if I don’t strike a chord with the reader? What if the what ifs  keep piling up? ” And then I realized that even in the thickest  fog I can depend on my insight to see and my foresight to write.

Then suddenly the fog lifted. And I found myself  writing my introductory blog.  So why the blog? Writing is what I do. Warming hearts is who I am. As a passionate mother faced with the common “juggle struggle” of family, career, community and self, I want to impart life lessons  and exchange insightful experiences that can nurture one another along the way.  While the road to success is always under construction,  I look upon this blog as a visceral compass intended to give its readers direction!  Especially when the fog rolls in.
