I am tired. I am tired of the day after day after day of blogging, writing, worrying about blogging, worrying about writing, struggling to get posts up (ahead of time to save time), wondering what creative mess to write about on this blog or that blog, and sometimes it’s just too much.
I have to remind myself that it is okay to skip out for a day or two sometimes. We all need rest. We all need to unwind, let loose, and not write; not even think of writing or what to write or how we aren’t writing and we should be writing.
A few days ago it was my birthday and I wanted to do something for myself BEYOND writing.
As writer’s we all need to remember that there is a world beyond the writer’s world we thrive in, stress in, grow weary, exhilarated, bombarded, excited, and whatever else comes over us as we write. Of course there is reading but in a way that is very much connected with our writing (when done properly). So we must branch out even further beyond the reading because that is part of our writing.
I don’t know about you but I have a hard time finding something else to do. I know there are other passions I could invest my time in. (I used to cross stitch, and I’ve crocheted.) But my mind is always geared towards writing. It just never stops.
Do you ever just want to scream…”It’s just too much!” I felt like that this week. But you know what…now that I’ve released some of this ‘truth’ I feel better.
Maybe I’ll go write something.
