I haven’t written anything purely for my own enjoyment in about four months, what I have written, however, is lots of academic pieces for my degree. These pieces of writing will be of interest to someone I have no doubt but now that I’m on summer break I feel like its time to get back into writing for enjoyment rather than trying to reach a word count and a deadline.
Needless to say, I don’t have an answer for the above question, honestly, I just wanted to find a reason to open up WordPress and tap on the keys hoping against hope that I might find some kind of inspiration along the way. Because as long as I keep writing that’s the main thing.
But what if what I write is rubbish or doesn’t make sense to people? Or worse what if no one reads it? Honestly, I don’t mind if you read this or not, I’m just happy that I actually managed to write stuff down and was happy enough with it to hit ‘Publish’. You see I’m still in what’s known as ‘recovery’ from what has bascially been one of the most stressful years of my life; from both myself and my father having surgeries within two days of each other to discovering that I have a congenital malformed uterus which is why my periods are both painful and heavy to stay on top of deadlines, holding down a part time job, then losing two of my aunts within two months of each other to now where I have just discovered that I have to overall my diet due to a carb intolerance. It is no wonder why I lost interest in writing throughout this whole ordeal.
If I have learned anything from the last few months it is how important it is to talk to people about what you are going through, so that is what I’m going to write about. My experiences both good and bad, and maybe just maybe, this writer’s block might finally shift…..
