I don’t know if anyone remembers, but a while back, I did some posts in the form of diary entries from the perspective of a fictitious character called Avery. Some were purely fictional, others had basis in my currently reality at the time that I needed to talk about it some way. But lately, I’ve been having a lot of thoughts and want to get them out in story form, so I’m doing another entry into Avery’s diary, so please grab some coffee (or any beverage of your choice) as we all go brood with Avery over a delicious beverage.
Oh my goodness, it’s been a good minute that I’ve written in here, hasn’t it? All this stuff going on that I need to write down and I can’t even find a chance to write about it! …well technically, actually I have, but I haven’t had the mental energy to deal with writing.
When I have a lot of stuff going on and a lot of pressure with University deadlines and suddenly…suddenly I’m getting inspiration for my stories.
Why is that? Why did I go through a period where I could write just like that and then I dry out and now inspiration comes sparingly?
It’s confusing to say the least.
Am I not meant to write anymore? Or have I done something that’s stunted my ability to create?
Or maybe it’s because everything has changed so drastically since last year, and not just through the pandemic, but in a lot of things, generally pretty personal, that it’s just temporarily shaken my creative core enough that it’s going to be a bit before I can get myself back together and back to my writing?
I pray it’s not a fault of my own.
Maybe I need to make myself sit down, set a time for fifteen, twenty minutes each day and try and see how much I can write in that time? I should start out with five minutes and slowly build up because I don’t wanna push myself too far too fast.
I just hope I haven’t somehow killed my gift entirely…cause I need it, it helps keep my sane…and I love creating.
Hopefully, the answer will be clear soon along with the solution.
On a happy side note, it’s my birthday in exactly a week!!!
