I Can't Publish That

Well I did have something proper written for today and now I'm not sure I'll be able to publish it. I hate when that happens. If I question if something should be published then chances are I won't publish it. I have a few drafts I'm not sure will ever see the light of day for whatever reason. I guess sometimes it helps just to write something out but it feels like a wasted effort when you write something specifically for the purpose of publishing it and then you don't. It was inspired by a sort of argument me and a friend had yesterday that ended in her deciding not to talk to me for a while.

I don't know why I won't publish it either really. She's not too likely to read it and its not like I attacked her anyway if she does. I wasn't even that much of a pathetic emo in it. Most of the time people write and don't publish something seems to be relativity and the longer they go without publishing it the less relatable and current it is, and the less likely they are to publish it. There's also when you don't want certain people to see. Oddly enough I still have that fear despite posting several things that would set alarm bells off in my families head if they read and still got no reaction from them over it. I can pretty much say at this point they aren't reading, but the fear they might still stops me. I've also mentioned a few things I'd do if I wasn't scared of the backlash I might get.

Don't worry about me though, it wasn't Jessie I fell out with, and with friends like her and Holly I can get through anything. They still love me, even at the times I really hate myself.

Also, today and tomorrow are going to be very busy days for me. It might be back to holiday rules of reading but not commenting. Though Megan, I'll send your posts to myself in an email and go back and comment on them when I can.

  1. I don't think that you should be afraid to publish whatever you want although personally I've been sitting on something too, it's been really bothering me but I can't bring myself to write about it so I do understand. Hopefully you'll decide to publish it, best of luck in the things that are keeping you busy too buddy.

  2. If I were you, I would just publish it. And now I really NEED to read what it is you wrote because of all that amazing build up!!

  3. Well, if that's part of your advertising comapaign (I deliberately spelled that wrong), it works man. I'm all hooked and wanna see what you're talking about.
    I'm also about to work on a 4-week musical excursion into myself and kinda self-realization and stuff. Just post it and hope for the best.
    And DON'T pray to the Sun. Just give it a thumbs up every once in a while.

  4. There are a lot of things that we write that should never see the light of day and knowing when not to publish something is as important as knowing when to publish something. But if you do want to write it out, you know we'll read it. Take care Mark.

  5. I know what you mean. Some of my friends read my blog, and sometimes a write a post about how crappy one of them has made me feel, but I don't post it as I worry about their reaction to it if they figure out it's them! But I feel better after writing it, like a catharsis thing :D

  7. I have had stopped talking to friends in the past, and it's been fine because we know we love each other enough to recover, and all we need is some space and time apart. Hopefully the two of you sort things out. And, like you said, you still have Jesse and Holly. Has Jesse ever done a guest post for you?

  8. It's better to not post something than to post and regret it.

  9. I hope things work out between you and this person. If your mind tells you not to post, they you've made the right decision!

  10. There are many times I question whether to publish something I write. Some things make it to the blog while others don't. The ones that make it are the ones I think can help someone who may be in the same type of circumstance as me, anything else goes in the trash. I hope all is a bit better now.

  12. Thank you Mark. Not being a serious writer and still a bit unsteady on my feet, I really appreciate your, or anyone else's feed back.

    We have all done that with friends, but most of them understand and things pass. Post whatever you like, but make sure that you don't lose anyone in the way. I hate it when friends fall out over something trivial. But, as it is a personal matter, only you can know the right thing to do.

  13. It is sometimes good to wait a day or so, if you are not sure if you want to publish something. One might consider it in a different light when they are in a different frame of mind. From my point of view, I am throwing caution to the wind more and more, in regards to holding things back in my writing. As long as you are a good person, and writing things that are what you truly believe in, there is no reason to hold back. The people that mind don't matter, and the people that matter don't mind.

  14. Mark! You should totally do, like, a week or so of unpublished posts for your next blogaversary! Maybe they're good, maybe they're hilariously bad. It's win-win either way! :D

  15. It's an erotic fan fiction about Bibleman isn't it?

  16. I hate when I write something and then realize that one reason or another I really shouldn't publish it. I hate that feeling.

  17. I've only deleted one post before, published everything else. But yeah, it's not a good feeling. All that work for naught. ._.
