I have always been critical of this blog and my writings in general. I might sound to people that I believe in everything I say here, and strongly. I think the arguments I post here are the closer version of what I have in mind.
I still believe in the opinions I shared on this blog, but the approaches to arriving to these opinions are changing constantly. Things are getting more complicated for me lately and I cannot seem to know how to use language to articulate these struggles I am going through while thinking of a certain problem.
Writing anxiety is something common among writers and bloggers, but some manage to get past it over the years but others don’t. In my case, the older I grew the more I find it hard to write.
I am not sure if what I am talking about is doubt. I think it’s beyond that. I has to do with language per se and the images the mind gets while thinking. When we think, do we think of words or images? In my case, it has always been images. My self-conscious efforts to translate these abstract images into language (words, grammar, structure) have always caused me some trouble in writing, even in discussions.
Reading. Reading books is the answer, I know it. I spend a lot of time reading online, but reading books is different. I know that now, well, perhaps I’ve always knew that but been lazy.
Now I think I am ready to get serious about my readings and writings. I love writing. After all, writing is the only way for me to exist in this world.
So please take a minute and choose one of the answers listed in the poll below. It would help me decide whether I should stop blogging or not.
