*Self Censored*

I've done it again. I wrote an entire post and then deleted it without ever giving it the chance to be posted. It wasn't that it wasn't good, it was just not right. Honestly I think it was a bit boring even if I find what I was writing interesting. Sometimes I shouldn't share everything that is in my head.

Really though I know the problem was the content of the post. It is not so much that it was bad content, it was more that it was the wrong content. What I was writing was not what I wanted to write, and when my heart and head are not fully behind what I am writing, my writing suffers. I am sure you writers out there can get behind that statement as well.

The things I want to write about...well I just can't. It is not that I am physically not capable of writing it, it is just that there are ramifications to everything I write, and I am not prepared for the ones that would come from me writing these things in public.

I tried to think of something I could write that would at least serve as a good analogy for my frustrations, but that didn't even work. Possibly it is because my feelings are very raw just now, and I want to verbalize them in clear and concise terms. Making some round about moral story or analogy just isn't going to cut it this time.

So until I can get this out of my system some way other than putting it in print, I am not certain what I will post about. Hopefully something more pressing will come along and I can talk about that instead. Somehow though I see myself stewing about this for a while longer.


  1. Hmm...based on today's post I think you're going to love the series I'm writing this week. More on our fears of failure and exposing ourselves.

  2. Apparently people like pictures of kittens ;-)

    Kidding. Whatever it is you're going through, I hope you can find your way out of the other side. Take care.

  3.  I am enjoying this weeks series so far. Mostly I can't write what I want right now because I would get fired for it. Plus there would be a lot of ugly language that no one needs to be exposed to.

  4. I like pictures of kittens, I should take more pictures of Etta and do another post on her. People would love that.

    This will all pass in a few weeks time, it is just making it through the next few weeks. I have to remind myself I am professional and by nature a good positive person.
