For the past few months, I have found myself unable to blog. Not just blogging, but writing in general.
This year’s NANOWRIMO has been one of my lowest word count in a while. It’s not the lack of time that’s the issue here. I am not bogged down by work as I have been in the previous years.
I blame my lack of discipline and dedication.
It could also be due to practice.
That, or my mental state may be not in such a good place.
Whatever the case may be, I find myself unable to do any proper writing these past few months.
It’s probably that I do not find writing as a good outlet for creativity. I mean, I have always been a visual creator. Art, drawings, photos – those sort of things. But that does not mean that I am not a writer… Am I?
The past few months have caused me to doubt myself and my own abilities. I cannot seem to be able to gather my thoughts, and instead desire to waste time and indulge myself in entertainment.
However, I think the biggest issue here is that for this year, I have not been reading. Mostly watching and playing, but seldom reading.
Reading is the mind’s exercise to writing. It’s like fuel for your words.
For this year, the most I read was The Witcher. And I think that was only sometime in the beginning of the year. Why was I not reading? Probably due to lack of discipline again. Entirely my fault. It could also be that I have not found any good material to read. When was the last time that I dove in book and read and read and read – where each end of the chapter would draw me to start another chapter… It has been a while.
Hopefully you are doing better.
I’m fine, but the melancholy of December is sort of getting to me.
Also, I’m very grateful for the fine folks who have been buying things from my redbubble shop. I really appreciate it. I’m guessing these will be gifts for Christmas. Thank you for your support!
Anyway, thank you for reading. I hope you have a great day!
