This is the conclusion to which I have come (I think...) - taking three weeks off from writing is too long! I can't seem to get excited about any topic...can't get my mind around what to write...and am feeling absolutely no inspiration at all. It's discouraging and frustrating. I kind of feel like this old metal container - empty and a bit worn around the edges. (love, love this container though!)
Has anyone else gone through this? Or are you going through this right now? If you've already "been there, done that", how did you pull yourself out of it? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
It's as if a switch has been turned off...and I just can't get the brain to work the way I need it to. I can stare at the cursor on a blank page for a while and try to come up with something brilliant to write, but to no avail for a few weeks now. Ugh! I feel as though I'm at a standstill...and I'm not one to sit or stand still! (Ask anyone who knows me!)
In the meantime, I'm trying to catch up on comments on my own blog and I've enjoyed visiting other blogs and commenting as well. That's worthwhile and fun, but I still wish I could get excited about writing something here too, you know?
This post isn't meant to be a downer! I'd just really appreciate any thoughts or tips you have to possibly get back on track? Thanks!
All my best to you today,
