Microblog: Writer’s Block

I need to get back in the habit of writing regularly. Especially these microblogs, which are good for accomplishing small things every few days.

I don’t think writer’s block is the reason I haven’t updated in a while. I have a few topics sitting in draft state for a while, just needing to be cleaned up. Maybe it’s more like writer’s anxiety? Writer’s guilt? I feel bad for not updating, so I avoid the thing that makes me feel bad.

I also feel bad about my guides. I’ve been updating my boss guides as we clear stuff on mythic, but I don’t broadcast it anywhere. It feels like that’s the bare minimum, and if I broadcast it then that naturally brings up the question of why I’m not updating more. Especially my class guides.

I noticed a few weeks ago that my talent pages were totally broken (something changed with the Wowhead links). I wondered how long they’d been broken, since I haven’t looked at them in a while. Those pages are fixed now, at least.

I need to get back in the habit of writing because it makes me feel better about myself, like I’m contributing to something, even if that thing is just my personal blog. It’s the same as wearing nice clothes even when I’m working at home; because it’s important to do those little things that make you feel like you’re accomplishing something.

    You really need to be included on the Peak of Serenity website as one of the brewmaster contributors. I know you have your own site (it’s better for general BrM gameplay than POS), but the community would benefit a lot from you being active.

      Aww thanks! Though the Peak of Serenity folks are great, we tend to value different things when it comes to guides. They also tend to be much more up-to-date than me! But it’s nice to know people out there value my guides for what they are. :)
