I’m having bloggers block and I need help. This blog started out with me just pouring out my thoughts. I couldn’t contain them and I just wanted to get the words OUT! It felt great and cathartic, like a dam had burst inside of me. Now it’s starting to get harder and I’m becoming more sensitive and critical of my writing and seeking to improve. I want to write the story of Amy and Adam well, and I am struggling to know how to do it.
Should I write it like a novel with characters and dialogue (well dialogue of a sort as it’s mostly, but not all, online)? Should I continue to write it in the first person? There is so much material in the Amy and Adam story and I need to do it, and Adam, justice. How do I build them as characters? And weave them through the rest of my life story.
But then, blogging is not novel writing. Even a newbie to writing, as I am, knows this. There are many bloggers out there who are writing wonderfully and captivating people and keeping them interested. My little band of followers (you are each precious to me already) are giving me some nice feedback, but lets face it, some of you are my friends so even if you don’t like it you are being nice, or tactful. And some of you are being helpful. I really appreciate that. And I don’t mean to hurt my friends’ feelings, however the bloggers who are following me will probably be more objective.
They are interested because the story has captured them. My friends are interested in the story, however you are also interested in me cause I’m presuming you like me, or you wouldn’t be my friends. Plus for some of you this is great gossip, as you didn’t know about my secret life. One of my friends last night told me that people like to peer into other people’s lives, so I should try to take advantage of this curiosity. That’s so true. And my gorgeous sister suggested that I write this post, to practice and to seek feedback so I can improve and in turn, entertain or interest my followers. Thanks sis! Great idea and I took your advice as you can see.
Help me out here? Any ideas on how to present the Amy and Adam story? What bits so far have been the most interesting? I see the likes on my posts and I re-read the ones with the most likes to try and figure out what resonates.
I also need to know how much sex you would like to read about? Should I go boldly into that in detail? There are risks for me in opening that up widely but I’m not totally scared of doing that.
I’m also thinking of posting some pictures. Would this enhance my blog?
And lastly, should I tell Adam about the blog?
Let me know your thoughts!
