Blog Profanity Not Here!

Folks on this one I could really be on a rant about profanity on blogs. It is their right to do so and it’s my right not to participate in that garbage! When someone uses profanity to make their point they are showing their lack of intelligence to show how really small-minded they are and that is sad. As comedians will tell you that it’s easy to make people laugh with the use of profanity. It’s an art form to do it without it. I think as we write we should have a sense of responsibility to our readers. The thing is if you use it a lot in your personal life then it will naturally bleed into your writing.

Now let me make this clear. I have used profanity ( especially on home repairs) and I will again. My late father taught me that if men are talking among themselves that’s one thing but when a woman shows up that stuff stops!

But then again if you don’t have self-filters in your personal life then you won’t have them in a public forum.

Writers True To Yourself

When we begin to write we often have a mindset that we want to become a certain kind of writer. The thing is that it can diminish your creative thoughts. Sure there are basic concepts in writing but I think that as writers we need to ask ourselves one question.

Am I truly being honest with myself or am I trying to fit into a certain genre? Those can be two different things altogether and can lead to years of frustration. I know there are sometimes social pressures that can push you in a certain direction. Then inevitably this leads to the ultimate question.

How much are you willing to compromise and ignore the kind of writing that you were meant to write?

Sleep Optional For Writers

For those of us who love to write sleep can become an optional exercise at best. It’s one of those things people don’t understand. Sure there could be other factors but in the end writers’ brains don’t have an off switch.

I know there are times when people have “writers’ block” but is it that or other factors? When you have other issues going on in your life it can be difficult to concentrate but is that “writers’ block”? Just a thought to ponder.
