I talk about writer’s block a lot, mostly because I THINK about writer’s block a lot. As a freelance writer, there’s a lot of pressure to blog regularly or at least produce some content on a personal level on a consistent basis. As you can see from the lapse in posts, I don’t succumb to the pressure very often.
You see, I really don’t see anything wrong with not writing when you don’t have anything to write about. I put faith in ideas, and that ideas will happen sort of organically. Yes, you should feed your brain and creativity by continuing to write in one way or another. Still, if it ain’t happening, it ain’t happening. Don’t ever feel pressure to produce creatively because (if you’re anything like me) you’ll end up frustrated and disappointed.
I’ve had a crazy couple of months – in a superb way. Balancing my own business while maintaining a part-time job while staying at home with my son is a constant seesaw of obligations. On top of that, I’ve been fortunate enough to publish a book – a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Because of this my blog has definitely suffered. But that’s okay. Business is great, and taking time to focus on my business and my book will breathe life into creative ideas down the road.
So that’s that. An article about not writing articles.
