I ran out of steam for the blog a few days ago.
The difficulty for me is that, firstly, I have to have sufficient mental prowess to be able to run a string of thoughts together in logical sequence. After that, I need to be able to transfer the thought process to text. It can be tricky, since commonly used words have a habit of refusing to enter my mind, and the discipline to suspend the thoughts in the right place while dealing with grammar and spelling issues, can be exhausting.
Then there is the lack of willpower to even bother in the first place. Even when the idea is strong and the English flows well, the thought that it is all a waste of time due to the fact that no one actually reads it, is always a potential drain to the enthusiasm. Even if people do read it, they might just consider the blog to be poorly written, ill considered, biased, uninformed, or naive.
Still, the need to write, remains and always returns. I simply ran out of headroom for a short while.
Funnily enough, It was from looking at the technical aspects of recording signals into a Digital Audio Workstation that seemed to illustrate this to me, thus allowing myself to re-calibrate the attenuation of my thought processes.
Its a pity I can't re-calibrate them on the Mackie mixer I am using.
