What is worth writing about? Sometimes I get stuck in the thought that if I don’t have something significant to say and if it doesn’t flow from my fingertips onto the keyboard in a significant way, that I must have nothing to say at all. I mean, if I did say it and then it didn’t affect anyone in any significant way then doesn’t that mean it’s not important and I wasted my time? I don’t want to waste my time. So then I end up not writing at all out of fear that it won’t be significant or that I’m not gifted enough to make it significant. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it?
I know that I’ve done my best work when I’ve written something that I consider to be significant. When it is something I feel deeply, even if it is something humorous, I can make it real. The trick is figuring out what aspect of it feels significant to me. I’ll work on that later. But right now, I just feel like a boring, insignificant typist.
