I started this earlier as I always find my insecurities have burrowed back into hiding beyond some level of bliss by the time that fateful Wednesday appears.
But I am starting to wonder if I have been... I would not say limiting but something along those lines.
I hunger desperately for prompts, for the right prompts, to fully flesh out the ideas being neglected in my mind, its hard to remember the last time I wrote flash without the intention of fulfilling a prompt or submitting a linky.
Its like having that requirement, knowing it will be viewed in the light of some goal, makes it more valid? I can write, and feel elated by my accomplishment, that I succeeded satisfactorily.
If I just write any old thing what standard will I measure it by? What guidelines will I follow? (I mean not that I am all that great at adhering entirely by the rules, but its nice to know they are there...)
How will I know it is the best flash I am capable of if there is no motivation to prove my ability?
I know this sounds superficial, but its the deeper fear of how will I salvage an idea if I write it terribly the first time...
In more recent news I still cannot comprehend the generous following growing alongside, even with my lacklustre schedule, but want to thank all for their consideration of my little place, and am stubbornly determined to publish something- tomorrow!
