I do not know how many bloggers can relate with this topic but it’d be interesting to see how many comment and share their experience with this topic.
Let me start off by asking this question. Have you ever been a position where you have a lot of editorial like topics you want to write about yet cannot find the right words to type words on your screen? There have several instances where I have been in this kind of situation.
I will name some of the topics that I will eventually cover after writing this post to give an example of how I occasionally go through this short period since becoming an aniblogger.
- The Best Friend, where I discuss the different types of friends lesbian characters have, what they do and their luck with love whether it is with another person or the lesbian protagonist they have feelings for.
- Big and Small, the common trend of well endowed girls being paired up with shorter, usually less busty girls.
- Foreign Exchange, the trope of pairing up Japanese girls with European or American foreigners, usually blondes.
- OG vs Slash, where I discuss why I have a hard time getting along with people who pair up characters with little to no reasonable evidence to back up their pairings and mention several reasons why I believe subtext pairings are superior.
- Nostalgia vs Present Day Opinions, where I investigate the difference in opinion between people who hold high esteem for something they cherish from the past and people who experience that same thing years later.
- OG, The Reverse Cynic. I discuss how I am no less cynical than everyone else on the internet and mention possible reasons why I’m harsher towards shows that are praised for their seriousness, edginess, realism and gritty nature. I’m a bit iffy on this topic but perhaps I may get more incentive to write it after reviewing Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo ESP.
- Attack on Titan, not exactly a review of the show but something similar to what I did for Ore no Imouto. Basically describing my experience watching the show and what I got from it.
There are times where a writer (or a blogger) has many ideas they would like to express on paper or monitor yet sometimes they can have too many ideas all at once and not enough words to convey all of them. This leads to the writer’s brain getting fried.
I often have short periods where I cannot find words accurate enough to convey the message I wish to share. Sometimes before writing posts I have a special routine where I put together what exactly it is I want to talk about but this routine involves me moving around a lot so I cannot make a video. After mapping out the post I want to write, something happens that breaks my concentration and the map gets torn to shreds. Sometimes it’s a distraction from the outside. Other times I sporadically lose interest. Then there are times I question whether I should even write a post or not.
This could be you if you get a case of topic overload.
In the end it is cool to be inspired but one has to make sure they are mentally and emotionally prepared to jot down their thoughts and not be overwhelmed, distracted or befuddled. If necessary write a permanent draft and fill it up over time. Do not make my mistake of cooking up ideas and not spread the sauce across several pots instead of pouring it all in a single one or letting it expire.
