Every creative person before me has identified and dealt with a little issue that I’m going to call Writer’s Guilt. Writers Guilt occurs in two distinct–yet definitely intertwined–forms.
It occurs to me that everyone with a creative pursuit must go through this ordeal and come away making a choice in either direction. I have yet to make that choice, and end up doing 50% on both sides of the coin, rather than picking one and going full force.
What can I do about this? Let’s first identify the two sides of the story, then we’ll do a little research to find out what ways other writers suggest to get past this social and personal road block.
This may be an unorganized mess of a post, so please stick in there.
It has been a long time (far too long) since I last updated the blog. I have been getting a steady stream of hits to some of the relevant posts here on Worthless Genius, but truthfully, everything has been a bit stale.
I’ve updated the theme here, to make it look a little nicer, and a bit more modern, but that’s just about all the work that I’ve put into the blog lately.
The lack of update could be due to a large number of unrelated circumstances, or it could simply be that I’ve been lazy lately. So, I just want to touch on a few ideas that have been circling around in my head for the past month, with a brief explanation.
Have you ever had one of those days where it seems that everything that could possibly go wrong does? As Murphy’s Law states:
Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
This seems truer today than ever in my life. It seems it’s a matter of the Universe trying to tell me something, and I’m not sure if I’m really ready to hear what it has to say.
