Taking the Writing Challenge

For the last 2 months or so, I have been meaning to write a blog post. I do not know the topic of the said post, or its content, or anything at all about it. I just know that I have to write something. I also know there’s a lot of valuable thoughts that I have in my mind that need to be put in words, but I cannot bring myself to put them in writing.

Writing simply terrifies me.

On the flip side, in about the same amount of time, I have been able to learn quite a lot of new stuff related to JavaScript programming, among them React, Jasmine, ES6 and much more. Surprisingly, when I have had to write code on these things and put it out there, I usually do it without a problem. Writing, on the other hand, has always felt like a nightmare.

So what can I do about it?

So this is me officially putting out the challenge to myself, to venture out to where I fear most, to write more and more until I no longer fear it.

Have you been in a similar situation before, whether with writing or something else, that you know you need to do but it simply terrifies you? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
