‘Process Guy’ has been rather quiet of late. This is not because there has been any shortage of things to write about. Far from it. I’ve been getting exercised at varying levels of intensity about a wide range of topics. Yet, while not exactly writers block, a number of things have been getting in the way. In part it has been a curious mixture of when I have had the inclination to put together a post on something I haven’t had the time, yet when I have had the time I haven’t had the inclination.
Another part of this ‘blockage’ has been something I am discovering about my attitude to this blogging lark. I frequently have ideas for things to write about but want to attempt to come up with a least a half-decent argument in the subsequent post. But I am not one of these people whose thoughts flow easily out of my brain and on to my keyboard. I have to work at it in order to come up with something coherent. So often, while I have a good idea, the time I have available to work on expanding it into something worth asking someone else to bother to read is not sufficient. In the desire not to write rubbish I end up writing nothing at all.
“If that is the case, how come this rambling effort?” I hear you ask. Well, one of the few pieces of advice I can remember hearing about writing was that if you are finding it difficult to write what you want just start writing anything. You can attempt to write your way out of the difficulty. Also blogging is habitual, but once you fall out of the habit it can be difficult to fall in to it again.
So after some weeks without anything appearing on this blog I thought I had better make a concerted effort.
