I have experienced it so many a times. When I sit for writing a blog entry, I am stuck right at the beginning of the process. I just think of a suitable topic for the blog. That time spent in thinking about it takes it all and I am left with the lesser time to develop the write up.
On the spur of the train of first thought on the topics, I get the idea of writing about the current political happenings, writing skills, essay writing, self-help, motivation and inspiration and such other valuable topics. Then I tend to go a bit deeper in my thoughts and try to dig out the best in me.
Then enters the second train of thoughts; in this wave of thoughts I entertain the ideas such as social issues, women, children, poverty, charity, religion, karma, philosophy and influence of my thoughts on the society. That further makes me think more about the suitable topic instead of taking up one these several themes and starting the writing. By this much time I run out of steam.
I would not equate myself to a prolific writer who has lots of ideas and is able to develop them into successful articles that are considered 3—5 starred articles by the respective readers.
I would not make any mistake by telling myself that my efforts towards making a blog entry match the best possible plan for this activity. I would not be happy by considering that instead of asking for a help, I should continue the “digging-up” process.
When all of this boils out, I am hit by a query. It is a query about my general knowledge, which is very general, not at all specific. It is a query about my self-knowledge. What is that which interests me? What is that which I am passionate about? What would be my first step, when will I take it, towards the completion instead of thinking? Is it my karma or has it more content to add to it? When will I not get stuck right at the beginning and create a small piece to publish?
