I’ve always loved to write. It’s something that has never failed me.
It is reliable in life to just pick up a pen, in my case pencil and write down lists,thoughts,dreams,letters I’ll send, letters I’ll never send to that person but had to get out of my system, short story’s, or even the odd poem here and there.
I mean heck! I can be anything in the privacy of my own home.
Lately when I’ve wanted to write, something odd happens. My throat tightenes and I can’t manage to get the words out and onto paper.
It’s a blockage. A blockage that I will not let frustrate me, it sometimes makes me grin, because I can’t understand it…
” I just has something to say but it’s not ready to come out and into print”
Its a weird feeling. A feeling of limitation. As though I’ve lost my freedom. My juice has run out. Gosh it makes me feel so useless.
Have I nothing? Nothing productive to share?
I must have something bubbling, that is of interest to me, because my heart and soul is still working away, making me restless inside my body. Fidgetting, shaking with my legs, bodily movements and impulses annoying the crap out of the people closest to me.
I’d love to put something down on paper, but nothing productive comes out.
Then I noticed. It’s not a creative block…it’s just WRITING BLUES.
And then I started investing time in putting my thoughts and love and juice into expressing myself differently.
When at first you don’t succeed, give it time to come back to you, while you do something else you’re passionate about.
I have paused my hobby writing, but found other ways to live out my needs.
Telling stories through pictures.
Instagram allows me to post and share picture, that tell a little tale about my life and my interests, but allow me to put my writing at rest.
My writingsoul needs time to recuperate and get inspired again. And then the words will flow again. I’m sure. But in the meantime there’s no need to worry. So much time in a day to be filled with other passions…
Don’t fret, accept and have a good time.
Express yourself differently and writing will come back to you.
