I’m using this title as my writing prompt today because “Writing is a very emotional Experience” for me it is anyway…The emotions I feel as I try to express myself in words makes me very anxious (I’m always afraid I’ll make mistakes in grammar or say something which may offend someone). And it is not my intention to do that, but for example here is a picture of a tweet that I made today on Twitter:
Although I should’ve made this a RT, or a RT @, because I copied USAgov’s tweet and this is what it says: “@USAgov How would you improve USA.gov? Let us know by leaving a comment at http://go.usa.gov/l1g …Are you listening? Merry Christmas! :-)” MyUniqueLife. USAgov’s tweet made me feel like they really want to listen to what we have to say with their new site. But as usual I got no response to my tweet. I devoted my first full year of blogging to Looking for an Epiphany in 2007 with the theme of emotions.
I feel like I did the best that I could, trying to write about my emotions, but I’m just learning how to write too. If you can even call what I’m doing here writing. But since my very first entry I’ve felt paranoid about putting my thoughts into words for all the world to read. But as of today this is my 1,117th consecutive day that I’ve posted something, and I feel a sense of accomplishment in achieving my goal to write every day. Although I struggle with coming up with words to say, it hasn’t stopped me from writing.
Staying focus on one particular subject while I write seems to be my biggest problem, as my mind wants to wander about on its own. But I think I’m just making too much of a to do about what I say and the words that appear on the page. In conclusion I don’t even know if I’ve addressed the topic of writing about how much of an emotional experience that I find writing is today. But I feel great relief in getting my writing therapy done for today, and accomplishing my writing practice!
Thanks for Listening,
