I have been unable to write, recently.
Part of it is that I’m going through some transitions, and I’m not quite sure where I stand on some things. I’m finding it hard to articulate nuances and distinctions, because I’m not sure where I stand within their mire.
Part of it is that I’m not sure if I have anything that I want to say. No, that’s not quite right. Part of it is that I’m not sure that I have anything worth reading.
But mostly? Mostly it’s just that I’m worn down.
I’m busy. I work all day, most evenings are full of time with partners, friends, and other activities. On paper, everything is great. I feel like I should have nothing major to complain about, as I have financial stability, excellent health , and I’m moving soon to a place further away from the toxicity that I have been mired in over the last couple of years.
And yet every time I try to write, it falls flat. Usually, when I write the action creates it own energy and the next thing I know an hour or two has gone by and I have written way too much (I edit, usually). These days, I get an idea, I get started, and then about 2 or 3 paragraphs in, it just dies away.
Just like that.
And now I don’t know what to say.
I’m trying, but it’s hard.
I hope to be back soon.
One thought on “Uninspired”
As a random stranger commenting on your blog, you can take my advice with a grain of salt. It’s your blog and you can post or not post to it as you wish to. If you’re not feeling like writing, don’t do it. Unless you’re getting paid to do this, you’re under no obligation to write.
I just came across your blog today on a search and, while I like what I’ve seen thus far, I would feel terrible if you felt forced to write. Blogging should be an enjoyable activity.
I hope you find some inspiration and some rest. 🙂
