I want to write

Due to illness and other business, I have, unfortunately taken a very long break from writing and blogging…
I haven’t even been reading a whole lot and that really screwed up my yearly reading challenge.
(I challenge myself to read more than a novel a week)

So, as of today I am going to start writing again, not daily probably, not that I ever posted daily.

I always wanted to be one of those people, the ones who can pick up a pen or their laptop and just… write… Everyday.
I’m making it sound easier than it is.
No one just writes, I know it’s hard work.
I guess I just don’t have the self discipline.

(To be honest, my concentration levels are currently so poor, I can’t read a single page without losing my train of thought so how am I meant to write one?)


I’m thinking that getting back into writing is like learning to walk again.
I’m going to stumble and fall a lot in the next few weeks.

Patience and practice are key.

One day, I’ll work up the energy to take a nice artistic photo of my own writing set up.

Merry Christmas and happy new year everyone!

      1. Yes, you could. I find my inspiration comes from …no inspiration at all.

        If you really want to post each day, set a schedule that’s easier. I don’t recommend mine; in fact, I just killed off one of my series because I have NO TIME to write.

        You can do a quote you like, then a short quip, then a depressing observation, then a poem, then a picture you found on Instagram, then a reblog, then a flash fiction piece. There’s your week. 🙂

      2. 😀 Well, that’s a start.

        I DO notice that, when people ask sincerely for advice, that I give them what I really need to do.

        There’s not a great replacement for a deficit in motivation or hormone inbalance, though…
