reverb10 day 2 topic is pretty disappointing…

December 2, 2010 at 2:58 pm | Posted in #reverb10 | Leave a comment

i’m not a writer. i’m barely a blogger. far too often, i write something and think “why would anyone care to read this?” but i post it here anyway because, well… this is my blog and i’ll do what i want. if people read it, great. if they don’t, oh well. and if someone reads it and doesn’t like it, not my problem. but today’s prompt seems to be geared towards a person that would actually classify themself as a writer, which i have never claimed to be. i went to school for photography but i don’t call myself a photographer. when i was a waitress, i didn’t go around saying, “hi, i’m alison, waitress extraordinaire. it’s lovely to meet you!”

What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing, and what can you do to eliminate it?

well, the fact that i’m not a writer doesn’t contribute to my writing. can i eliminate that? it’s pretty hard to eliminate something that isn’t there to begin with. when i go days/weeks/months without posting something on here, it’s mainly because i don’t have anything to say. or i participate in a project like nablopomo or reverb10 and completely forget about it because it’s the weekend and i’m doing other things. my life doesn’t revolve around this little blog of mine. and in all fairness, i don’t want to eliminate that fact.

am i completely misinterpreting today’s prompt?
