When I started learning about permaculture I knew it was something I wanted to share with people, not because I see it as the way to do things but because nature is something I really enjoy and I wanted to share my passion with people.
One day I started a blog and knew I had to choose permaculture since it’s new and exciting to me. As much as I enjoy planting and digging in the dirt I am coming to the point where I am questioning my motives and intentions when I write. Questions pop in my head like, “Am I writing in a way that attacks another persons beliefs or how they do things?” “Am I presenting my thoughts as the right way to do things or am I just presenting information?”
I believe this phase of questioning yourself is normal and I know all I need to do is wait for the answer to present itself, I just hope I have the endurance to keep writing after I get through all of this.
The only thing I can think to do at the moment is keep it simple and make sure that I proofread everything before I hit that publish button.
Have any of you gone through this phase as well? Did you do anything to help yourself through this or did it go away over time?
Maybe there is no cure for this, maybe it is a test I must go through and hopefully I will come out the other side a better writer than I was before.
