One Of My Many Apologies

Why is it that when you know you have to do something you try to avoid it as much as possible? I have an apology to make because I know I've avoided blogging lengthy posts, and even blogging my tracks of the month, but it's because I'm feeling under pressure.

I need to improve my writing for a test I have coming up. It's the sort of test where they'll assess and scrutinise everything, and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Grammar, sentence structure, paragraph structure, order of paragraphs, whether paragraphs are hooked, the list just goes on and on! It's a test of your thinking, general writing ability and how logical your thought process is - in 30 minutes.

Unfortunately for me, my trail of thought is exactly that. A long trail that meanders and weaves round and round. I'm not very direct and I like to beat around the bush as they say. Hence why I need to improve how I write and what I write. Surely blogging more is the simple, most interesting solution... Apparently not. I've been scared to even look at the blog and read Sean's posts. I sit and I think.. hmm why can't I write like that in 20 minutes like he does?!

Don't get me wrong, he's been very encouraging, but I just can't seem to get my head around any sort of topic to blog about enthusiastically, and I suppose I shouldn't get used to blogging about things I like because I might be given a topic I don't like, or even know nothing about, how will I fare then?! Oh.. the nerves just keep getting worse and worse, my tummy is doing somersaults!

Mind you, I've quite enjoyed writing this ramble so maybe I will write about something I can really sink my teeth into. Thank you kindly, you've been most helpful. I hope you'll read something from me soon - mainly because I hope to have written something for you to read soon!
