I Didn’t Touch Writing For A Month

So my dear dreamers, it certainly has been quite a while since we’ve touched base. I hope you have all been well. I can’t say I am doing well, nor am I doing unwell. In the month that I’ve been absent from blogging, I haven’t so much as written a word, not even for this blog. I think I just needed a break from writing as a whole because it had become this gnarly, ugly thing for me, this thing I had to do to get published and plus, what I wrote just wasn’t very good and that was extremely disheartening.

It’s 10pm and I’m Exhausted

Welcome to the world of unemployment for creative writers, which is that in amongst all the searching for jobs and applying for the jobs once they have been located and found, one still has one’s short stories or novels to get back to. When a writer is unemployed, he or she is only unemployed in the eyes of the world. In reality, he or she is very much employed in the daily business and arduous task of writing and would like not to be disturbed, thank you very much.

I’m Finally Happy

So, I went on an extended absence from my blog, and the reason for that was, I simply didn’t have anything to write about anymore. All of a sudden, all the inspiration that had been fuelling my blog posts ran dry, and this wasn’t because my life was going badly – it was because I was finally starting to heal from childhood trauma and my life was going well.

A Little Ramble

I really like the idea of two people who are very different falling in love. I think it appeals to my INFP’s sense of romanticism—individuals from widely different backgrounds, drawn together by fate and circumstance, who start up a whirlwind romance.

Whenever I try to write about it, however, it usually does not go down well. For some reason, I can never make the characters properly mesh, and I think that is because the characters I portray are usually too different to actually start a real relationship together.

I Started A Short Story Blog

After much debate, I started a short story blog.

Putting my writing out there for people to read is a scary thing, especially since I often hate everything I write.

But everyone has to start somewhere.

Writing and Procrastination

Sometimes, I’m lazy.

Sometimes, after a long hard day, all I want to do is come home, get some food in me and then sit in front of my laptop and relax with a couple of episodes from my favorite TV series.

It’s so easy to do that, isn’t? Continue reading Writing and Procrastination
