Have you ever heard the phrase creative constipation? I think it’s just another way of saying that you have writer’s block. I think that’s what I’m going through right now. I haven’t been able to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.
Walking Through Life As Women is all about lessons learned and being able to communicate those lessons learned to others through our blog. I know that it’s normal to have writer’s block and it will be temporary, but here I am. Well, I guess I should remember that I have been writing this blog for over three years. Maybe I should stop listening to my inner critic and stop being so hard on myself. Life lessons are constantly happening, so there will always be something to write about.
I’ll have thoughts about what I should write about for a post, but for some reason, those thoughts escape me. I need to start writing them down when they come to me. To be honest, I think what’s giving me writer’s block is what I’m calling my Covid brain. My constant thoughts of why we, as a nation and a world, are still dealing with all this crap. Are we ever going to be rid of this pandemic? Are we ever going to resolve the divide in our nation? Will I ever get out from under this level of depression? I wake up in the morning, remember that this is still my/our reality, and think WTF. But, then I get myself up and move on with my day, focus on hope and all that I’m grateful for.
That’s probably the best way for me to get out of this writer’s block. To change my perspective or view on things, and keep moving forward. I read somewhere that when you can’t find the words, let them find you. I know that if I just start writing, the words will come.
