I’ve been away for a while, not writing. Not writing sucks! I somehow lost the motivation. I say somehow, but I know how.
I started to feel that it was pointless to write when nothing will ever come of it. I still sort of feel that way. It’s not that I doubt that I’m good enough (though sometimes I do doubt that) it’s more that I doubt people want to read what I want to write.
So much of what is popular is not interesting to me, to write or read. So what is the point of writing what I want to read, if no one else wants to read it? The more I hear people talk about what they like to read or watch, the more I feel like what I want to create won’t interest very many people.
I think, though, that I probably assume too much. That is a problem I often have. What I should do is keep putting things out there, and only give up when I’ve proven myself right. But it’s easier said than done.
Motivation is a pain in the ass.
Anyway, time to start producing words of some kind again. I have a feeling they might be satirical when I do…
