Call it whatever you want, but I am STUCK.
Not just stuck, I am B.L.O.C.K.E.D.
Of course this would happen to me when I have two amazing writing opportunities presented to me. And the big kicker of it all, they are PAYING jobs.
And here I sit, staring blankly at my computer screen, allowing myself to be distracted by Go, Diego, Go.
All I'm doing is making excuses.
I'm blocked because I'm overwhelmed. Or I'm blocked because I've never been paid to write. I'm stuck simply because I'm lazy.
And a tad bit scared.
Writing on a blog is a totally different experience then writing for a website or a magazine. When I blog I can cuss or I make a grammatical error.
I can just let it flow on my blog
When I write for someone else, I have to be formal and I can't let my snarky side take over. I have to be prim and proper... which is really hard for me. Part of what makes me love to write is having my voice shine through and I'm worried (afraid?) that if I don't have that sarcastic wit in my articles, it will suck.
Because an article without sarcasim sucks, right?
Maybe I need someone to poke me with a cattle prod?
