Two weeks down and I'm trying not to drown. Push. Pull. Persevere. Writing isn't easy. I know that. I've often told young writers that when writing gets hard, you need to push yourself and that all writers feel the same struggle. My words are certainly slapping me in the face today. I have ideas but I don't want to write about them or feel like I can't or shouldn't write about them. I'm having a hard time getting the words down. Maybe I have nothing in my brain worth writing. I'm thinking that is how kids feel when they say stuff like, "I don't have anything to write about," or "I don't want to write," or "I hate writing." I want to rant but I can't. I hate it when I get like this.
