Writing and I have a love-hate relationship. Half of the time I find I enjoy writing, and then the other half of the time I always end up finding myself stuck or, out of ideas. Now it’s not like I have just run out of things I could technically write about, it’s just whether or not who I’m writing to or about will care about what I’m saying. I don’t think that it’s me being worried about how people think or judge me when they read something I write but if I write about something very specific. Such as a certain car motor, which I have. Then I’m almost hoping that someone reading it actually cares or knows about what I’m talking about to be able to understand it better. This is one of the reasons I always find very little motivation to write for long or even short periods of time. Being lazy also definitely plays into that issue as well.
I do notice that once I do start writing I find it entertaining if it’s about something Relevant and meaningful. Another thing I enjoy about writing is trying to make it sound like yourself. Sometimes when I’m reading someone’s writing who I know personally, I’m able to relate what they’re saying to real life since it sounds just like something they would say in person. This makes the writing so much easier to understand and relate too.
If I’m honest about my initial reaction to a writing assignment it’s usually followed by a sigh. Once I start I enjoy writing, but most other times I just feel like I’m producing garbage with zero meaning. I hope that my writing improves and I become more gravitated toward the idea of doing it. I do feel some progress this year in the feeling of looking forward to writing.
