Real Journal v. Online Journal

23 Feb

For my 50th birthday, my wife gifted me with a journal. I have dedicated myself to write in it each day and have faithfully done that since November. I say that because this blog used to be my journal. I wrote as often as I could, and, hopefully, a lot of good stuff has been posted on here.

Obviously, my writing on this blog has slowed down considerably. Once, words flowed onto the screen. Now, they are a slow and dying trickle. I suppose that a few factors have gone into that.

Life got hectic, and I got out of the habit of writing.

I ran out of stuff that readers may find interesting. The last thing I wanted was a boring blog.

Whatever the reason, I can tell you that typing words is a lot easier than writing them out. There are times when I get going in the journal that my hands begin to cramp. Of course, that could be because I press into paper relatively hard when I write.

I have no idea where this is going other than to say that I am not doing justice to this blog. The blogging fire has somewhat been extinguished. My creativity has lagged. The information that I used to think was interesting to readers does not seem that interesting anymore.

Has this blog run its course? I hope not. I hope that I get back into the groove with posts that people may like to read. As of this moment, I am not really sure. I only know that the journal sitting on my desk has jumped ahead of the journal that is on this screen.

    Take your time, Rick. Don’t force it.

      Thanks. It will come naturally.
