I long for freedom, and when I get it, I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I will surely be happy.

At every writing class we take,almost the very first thing that they teach us is to brain storm..
The first step of brain storming is grabbing a pen and a paper and writing whatever pops into your mind at the moment,even if you feel that your mind is absolutely blank you it write down
You grab the paper and write: "my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,..." until something flashes inside there,and you start your piece!

I've been trying to write this thing I'm feeling and nothing is flashing...it is dark inside..


my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,my mind is blank,..

I think this is not the proper way of doing things. When you keep saying "my mind is blank", I am sure you will end with a blank mind. In fact I wanted to write this since I start seeing your "pensando" with the same words. Finally I did ;-)

I understand that brainstorming is good for getting ideas, mainly commercial! I mean it works for journalism, for example, but I think writing for pleasure requires the readiness for that. Otherwise you end up with a piece of writing which has no "character".

My mind is not blink, my mind is not blink, my mind is not blink, my mind is not blink, my mind is not blink,.... It is just not ready for it!

You're probably right
but I'm in a desperate need to write
When I write I can hear myself thinking and when I hear myself thinking I make sure I am still sane and that my mind has not gone empty yet
So you see I do not write for pleasure,it has become necessary for me to write
I want to figure this thing out and I can't because I can't seem to let it out and express it and that's why I'm so frustrated
I wanna know what the heck got into me 0_O and I do not like to talk to people about it
I NEED TO BLOG IT OUT! :(

I agree with Saleh, writing "my mind is blank" over and over makes you believe that it's indeed blank.

Maybe you should try another way to vent it out.
and maybe you are rushing it out , maybe your mind is not ready yet. Maybe !!

maybe you're right
maybe I should stop blogging for a while..

Rain,
I see some contradiction here.
You say your mind is blank in your post, then you say in one of your comments there is something but you can't express it.
Also, you say when I write I hear myself thinking, typically it's the other way around.

Now if the subject in your mind is not blog friendly In terms of that someone of your readers would judge you, or if it's too personal, you have 2 options, one write it down however it may be, scattered thoughts scattered ideas, scattered feelings and post it as is without refining it to be readable by your visitors, and maybe you disable the comments.

Or 2, write it down on a peace of paper until you get it our of your system, keep it in your purse or even burn it.

I hope I didn't misunderstand what you were trying to convey in your post and comments
Cheer up, you will be visiting all of us SOON I hope, lots a of times, long visits if you please. And maybe invite your relative... Snow, he is most welcome.
