Man, I don't want to do this blog post.
|Phonin' it in. Batman style.|
It's not that I hate blogging, but every time it's my turn to write something for our group site, I ask myself the same question:
What do I have to say about writing that's interesting?
I'm not published. I don't feel like I've conquered any particular writing related subject well enough to offer advice about it ... so what is it I'm going to say to the world that's of particular value to anyone?
And then I remembered why I wanted to blog in the first place. Blogging is an opportunity to sell
Sure, it's great if you offer up some gold nuggets about writing along the way (here's one: make sure when writing your dinosaur romance to include an innovative conflict for your T-Rex hero ... "end of the world is coming" has been done to death!) ... but as I was thinking of how I could just phone it in this week, I realized that every time I put something out there I need to make sure it sounds like me. I've got roughly seven paragraphs to win you over. I need to make sure they count.

"Why Ryan Gosling Should Do Every Movie Shirtless" just isn't going to write itself, now, is it?
What about you? Do you ever phone in your posts? Are you blogged-out? Lovin' your blog and never in need of content? Somewhere in the middle?
