I have a brainstorm book that I write any and all ideas in. Crazy, scary, mushy gushy, political, familial, marriage related, writing related, you name it, I write it. However, I don't always complete those thoughts. Remember how in elementary school, the teacher use to tell you, "Sweetie, there are no wrong ideas." [Or was that questions?? Both!] Well, there are. There are some very, very bad ideas.
We all have them in our lifetime. Some a little more permanent than others. But where was the breakdown, I wonder, from the initial thought, to the execution of it, to the realization of just how bad it was.
All this is leading up to today's morning pages prompt:
How much is too much in the world of blogging?
I ask this because I have read hundreds of blogs in the last year and have found a sea of variety in writers, styles, and focuses of blogs.
-Some people are very private with their private life [family, friends, loves, etc] and others just lay it all out there [exactly what it means].
-Some readers are offended or bored by the inner-circle stories and others feel more normal, connected, and encouraged.
There is a balance, but where is it?
Can you be too personal?
