Blog is SCARY January 24 2017

I don't really get nervous when I'm about to post a drawing.

Or when I speak in front of a group of people.

But for some reason I get nervous writing these blog posts.

I reword every line to sound "smarter". I go back and rewrite it like how I talk.

I delete everything.

I get self-conscious about using a new line for every sentence.

Big paragraphs are homework. Nothing scarier than a giant paragraph all by itself with no appetizer/dessert sentences. Perhaps not, if you're a quick reader. But I don't think that even the quickest readers are saying "I hope the writer doesn't get to the point!"

I'm a slow reader. I don't have trouble taking in the words, my mind just wanders off. How can it not? If you're trying to disappear into a book, why should your ability to focus not disappear too?

In school, whenever we had to read portions of text out loud, my parts were the only part where I retained zero. Luckily, I made it to adulthood and it turns out none of that information was needed after all.

Okay, I feel better now. Blog not so scary.
