SOOOO…. After many weeks/months of drowning myself in the news, I’ve finally realized that “the News” has been strangling my ability to be creative. It strangled it to the point where I didn’t have the desire to write. I finally realized this after wondering what has been keeping me from writing lately.
I figured out a couple things:
-I can’t write when I’m distracted
-I can’t write when my life situation is overwhelming or too busy
-I can’t write when I’m stressed
-The News does all of these things to me
So, apparently, when I watch too much news – the desire to write goes down in comparison.
And, truthfully, the only thing in the news right now is stress, panic, and disaster. So, I’ve gotta take a break. I want to write again – I want to want to write again.
Alot of things have happened in the last four years that definitely damaged my ability to do that, but I miss the flow. I want it back. I hope it comes back.
Hopefully, this helps.
Wish me luck.
