You choose, I respond

Full disclosure: Just because I’m not publishing on my blog here doesn’t mean I’m not writing (blogging).

I pondered earlier today if I should revitalize a draft I’ve started and post it, maybe pre-schedule it to post tomorrow or another day, since life has gotten in the way of my blogging routine. But then, I saw this:

I mean… 557 drafts? What in the world did I blab on about for it to manifest in over 500 posts that have yet to see the light of day?

Honestly, I don’t even want to know the content in those drafts. Perhaps I’ll just go and delete them all…

So instead, I thought I could do something a little different. Since this is a short week for Americans with Thanksgiving just around the corner, and most people have covid-related issues impacting their own mental state of mind, I decided to ask you what you want to read on my blog this week.

I have some suggestions for you, but you can feel free to ask for something not presented here.

Topics I could blog about:

1) I have a true story tucked away about a doctor who acted unprofessionally toward me in my youth. It is 95% written already but for some reason, I never published it. Reason I mention this? I was reminded of this unpleasant and confusing event after reading this story which my friend is publishing on his blog.

2) I have a somewhat problematic internal dilemma about my memoir that I started blogging, and not publishing, that I could complete and share here. It is sitting there in the draft folder among the other 556 files.

3) I could talk about all my stories that are in various stages of (in)completion and my plans for what to do with them.

4) Or I could just ramble on about my day, which may or may not happen anyway. πŸ™ƒ

What do you think?

  1. Whoa, I only have 10% of your number in my Drafts folder and already I feel like it’s too much. It’s always a good idea to go through it, as I actually found inspiration for an entire post there just last week.

    When it comes to what to write, I like reading about other writers’ creative process, so perhaps more of #3. Good luck!

  2. Briefly peruse the drafts, to see if there’s an underlying theme. Then tell us about that–about how an unresolved issue, or a significant experience initiated a creative vortex, that has you still writing to define its edges in your art and in your life.

  3. I think the memoir. Your personal stories, the ones you have shared on this blog, indicate that you should be a very good memoirist, with that eye to detail and a way to bring readers “in.” But anything you share will be welcomed and read!
