There is always somebody pressuring us to do right things and as writers pressurising us to write is a good thing. There are a few simple ways to spot when bloggers are being pressured into doing things. Equally outside forces mean we can make certain assumptions about people might be thinking. This article is not me touching up someone else's post. At least I don't think it is. I not plan what comes out, nor do I have a desire to finish any sentences for you. So, with all that said I shall continue with this months entry.
Hi my name is Robert Bridge and I'd just like to thank Reddit for 100's of visitors last month (May 2017). I am the main writer on this blog, as a matter of fact its just me all alone which is great that I do not have anyone finishing sentences for me. I know about how hard it is sometimes when people expect you to hang on every shallow word they say. Academic, a new YouTube video or some sudden biblical revelation is very personal.
I try not to get too personal and my comments I sure you agree are very superficial on the surface although lasting in a significant enough way to avoid any unnecessary instant dismissal.
Everyday it seems most people I know are tortured or distracted in the most unusual and unique ways. Many nets have been cast in the world of personal development, truths seekers and those of a similar ilk.
Procrastination starts I think elsewhere and in the world of writing online its a big responsability going over what you have previously written. Words if they are so important and simple enough to be non offensive to readers as well as reducing loss of translation across the board. Words can be very backwards, therefore is little wonder we catch ourselves back peddling.
The forces that be push us into experiencing the frustration of procrastination. And as we put things of and sugar coat things the less gets done.
From an outside perspective we have a helpful birds eye view of things. As writers we also have readers, mainly though ourselves. We come across pictures of Sea of Bones all the time and the temptation is understandably to walk on by, ignore, mind our own business to avoid any confrontation or ridicule. Finding our own voices, oracles and muses is way over the top. To our friends like wolves we howl the one thing we don't want to do and as experts we seem to be pidgeon holing ourselves with that 'build a wall' to fix things mentality.
There is a film with Bruce Willis that explains this a bit better called Unbreakable. The film alone explains the polarity of what's deemed good and bad in a topic most ignore. The mind is shaped in different ways.
Equally the brain size may have contributed to amazing engineering and architecture thousands of years ago. Special helicopters that no one talks about. Vessels that travelled swiftly over continents. Buildings built on points of earth which had astrological allignments.
All these like writers block, mysteries.
Whether its a big wow, something mundane or things you create yourself we can bet your bottom dollar, somewhere down the line someone or something is pressurising us in some way.
Again writing is solid enough to be written at equal times of conciousness.
The exposure of elements cannot help but contribute to our growth and who's to say if one glove fits all. Its our duality of conciousness and unconcious that unites us.
And there is where our quest for difference and uniqueness is where the rabbit meets the road. Which raises the question, no matter how much common sense feeds the doubt: are we any better off with coaches and mentors?
