This is my second day in a row when I am stuck when thinking about a post. It is my second day in a row when there is a post in my head but I don’t want to do it. It is the second day in a row when the topic in my head is somewhat political and Covid/mask related and I really don’t want to deal with it. I’m not sure I will ever get past being stuck until I actually write the stupid post. I feel like I have three options.
- Just write it and post it and hope that you don’t have too many negative comments to deal with. I should do this one. I don’t have enough of an audience to really worry about random, negative comments. I don’t think my opinion should offend anyone on either side. It’s pretty neutral. This doesn’t fix the fact that I just don’t want to write about it again. I would rather be done with writing about anything Covid related.
- Write it, but don’t publish it. This might be enough to get it out of my head. If I write it then maybe my brain will move on to other things. I don’t know why I don’t do more of this. I don’t have to publish everything I write. I can write just for me.
- Wait it out. I have to think that eventually my mind will move on to other things. I can skip some days of posting an then post my regular Friday and Sunday posts and hope that I will be unstuck after that. I don’t have a major issue with not posting every day, but I also know that if I get out of the habit of writing it will be easy to continue to not write. I don’t want to start any bad habits.
I am going on a drive today. I’, hoping a change in environment will clear my head. Maybe it will help me get unstuck in reading and writing.
What do you do when you are stuck? What do you do when your head wants you to write something you really don’t want to write?
