Blogging: Why is it so difficult?

I apologize for not posting anything for the past few weeks.

To be honest, I had no idea what to write. Can you believe that? A writer who doesn't know what to write! I know shocking right, but we all get some sort of block at least once in our life right?

I have learned something quite interesting which I am sure many of you have experienced before. Blogging is much more difficult than it looks. I personally try to write a post at least once a week and find it difficult to come up with topics that help you, my readers as well as being interesting. I seriously do not know how some bloggers are able to write 3-5 posts a week and keep it interesting.

If you're reading this, you might be a blogger like myself. How do you do it?

How are you able to find and write creative posts as much as you do?

Inspirational Writer - David Seidler

David Seidler you might have heard of him before. If you click on his name you will find an article about how this man, at the age of 73, won his first ever Oscar for writing The King's Speech.

Reading the article alone is inspiration in itself, especially when you read his life story.

My favourite quote from the article is, "Too many of the young writers haven't lived any kind of a life but film school and watching TV and movies," he says. "They're very good at their craft, but they don't have much life experience to back it up. I came at it the other way."

As a young writer I agree with that statement. I'm a movie hog. Most of my free time is spent watching one movie or another, but it does not give me near the amount of experience to write something as marvelous as the King Speech. (If you have not seen the movie, I urge you to see it. It's a simple story line but the message of over coming your biggest obstacles, makes it worth while to watch along with Colin Firth's amazing acting abilities)

What I found to be quite motivating in this article, is in the writing community it does not matter how old you are. Some industries once you become a certain age, you're basically done. Not in this case. You could write your heart out and become successful at the age of twenty five or eighty five. It does not matter what so ever. I just love the writing community!

For You:

Have you seen The King's Speech? If so what did you think of it?
Do you believe age a factor in the writing community?
