How many times have I sat here and asked myself, “Where has all of my inspiration gone?” And then in a single burst of newfound creative energy, it all seems to come back to me in full force. I live for the days when the thoughts pour right out of my head into a jumbled mess upon my college-ruled blue lined paper. Those words literally look up at me and beg me to put them into some kind of sensible order. We all face writer’s block from time to time though, and I think the best way to work through it, is to pick up a pen, and just start writing anything and everything that comes to your mind. Kind of like what I’m doing right now. In fact, I really have no idea where these words are currently taking me. I’ve been stuck without a decent thought or idea for months now.
I know I’ll never give up on the idea of being a writer because it’s the only thing in my life that has ever remained a true passion. I almost believe that a part of me would surely die if I ever did try to give up writing altogether. My soul seems to crave words as if my very life depends on them. So my advice to anyone who may be struggling at the moment is to keep pen and paper handy at all times, and just jot down random thoughts whenever you have the opportunity. I think you’ll be surprised by just how many ideas suddenly pop into your head, which may often lead to wonderful stories that you might not have thought could ever be possible.
Just never give up, you’re a writer after all, whether you feel like you can officially call yourself that or not. If you’re here and you’re writing for a blog, then you’re a writer, and it’s important that people hear what you have to say. You’re words mean something, and you never know whose lives you might touch by the simple things you say and share. Anyway, these are my thoughts for this quiet Tuesday evening, and I figured it was time to get out of my rut and write something. I hope everyone is having a good week. Keep on writing and never give up! Love, ~M xoxo
