Writer’s Block

Broken vase fragment

I mentioned in my last post that I had some ideas for blog posts. I wasn’t lying, I just can’t seem to get the ideas to translate into words. I’ve written and re-written posts, but they all seem to sound…hollow. Writer’s block – gotta love it.

My only concern is that I’ve had some form of writer’s block for months now. This blog used to be my favorite place to come and share, but then it took a turn. At first life got in the way, then I got in my own way. I’m not sure exactly why, but my patience for writing seems to have expired.

I think this is where having a blog theme comes in handy. If this was strictly a travel blog, all I would have to worry about is sharing travel stories. Likewise, maybe, if I had a set calendar. But I can’t seem to create an editorial calendar that inspires me to actually write!

If I’m totally honest, I’m having a lot of trouble finding anything inspiring about life right now. I’ve gone on some amazing adventures this year, but every time I’ve found myself dreaming about being back here at home doing what I always do, which these days isn’t a lot. I was meant to go camping this weekend, but the trip was canceled due to technical difficulties. I was actually rather relieved truthfully. And I didn’t cancel my PTO for today. Instead I’ve had a lovely (if somewhat toasty) three-day weekend and absolutely no regrets.

There is no real point to this post, other than as an effort just to write. I apologize for the disjointed thoughts here; it’s just so frustrating! I think I’ll leave this now and come back later to clean it up. I shall persevere, even if it takes a while to get back in the groove…

  1. I’ve had a number of periods when my blog was completely uninteresting to me as a pastime. I just lost the desire to document anything, and when I tried, it sounded bland to me. But then the interest returns, sometimes a result of new material and sometimes just … because! Be patient, and if you are meant to keep writing, you will!


  2. You will get back into.the groove again. I think you made a good start today. Writing even when you don’t feel like you have anything to write. You still made an effort to and thats the point.
    Hugs to you! Life happens! We go through the road bumps and rest stops , and then back.into.the nice flow of just cruising along. Your words will flow again my friend )
