Not-writing without wanting to

If you ever sat before an empty page or document not knowing what to do, you know what writers block ist. It is the hollow feeling that you aren’t capable, all good ideas have already been written into stories and nobody wants to read your writing anyhow. Writers block is the angst of the blank page, is that blog post from six months ago staring at you. It is that feeling of wanting to write but fearing to write. You probably speak than sixteen thousand words per day – why is it so hard to write them down, you may ask. I have no idea.

So what I am doing here? I am writing a blog post. I will be writing a blog post every day in november. Originally, I intended this to be a blog about knitting and other crafts. But since I haven’t written anything else than a cheesy “Hello World”, I won’t restrict myself to that. This november, I will write a post each day. It may contain knitting, or science or old tea bags. But it will contain something.

I will need to give myself some rules and I think that will be a good topic for my post tomorrow.
