“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart” ~ William Wordsworth
I was a clarinet player once. Until my ear drums nearly burst from the squeeking sounds I produced from the musical instrument and my tongue became blistered, splintered and sore from biting on the reeds. I knew it was time to quit when my Dad nearly went broke buying new clarinet reeds for my twin sister and me. As I have aged, I have often looked back on my days as a clarinet player. I came to realize the issue was not the reeds, it was my inability to play well. What it boiled down to was, I did not practice.
Blogging is a great way to practice your writing skills. The more you write, your skills will improve and the easier it will get – supposedly. I often ask “when can I call myself a writer?” Probably now, of all things! I am suffering from the very thing that all writers loathe – writers block.
How do I overcome this cloud that seems to be hanging over my head? From my days of clarinet playing, I know that practice is critical if you want to become accomplished in the Arts. I will have to break from the norm and change up my routine. But, I promise you all –
- Je vais ecrire!
- Ich schreibe, wid!
- Ik zal schrijven!
- Voy a escribir!
- Budu psat!
- Lo scrivero!
And perhaps some day, I will learn WordPress well enough to use diacritical marks where they are needed, so that all of our global clients can understand what I am trying to say!
