Writer’s Block and Other Insignificant Problems

March 13th 2019


Stopping by to chat a bit about problems that don’t really matter.

I have writer’s block. I have rewritten the first sentence of this post so many times and just haven’t found a better way to say what this post is about than to just say it outright. I have writer’s block and it sucks because I want to write and create content but every time I open up a new draft on WordPress, I sort of just stare blankly and wonder when inspiration will strike.

I wrote a post last year about How to Get Inspired to Create Better, Bolder Blog Content and even my tips from that post aren’t helping me. I think it is because my issue isn’t that I don’t have ideas; it is that I have ideas and my head just isn’t in the place to contribute my best work to those ideas.

You see, I am moving in a little over a month and a half, and the whole thing has become super stressful. Between packing, finding a job, leaving my current job, coordinating time to come back to New York for events and things after I move, and tying up all my loose ends, and dedicating adequate time to all of my friends, it has all become quite a lot.

I think the amount of things going on in my head at any given moment has made it impossible for me to give as much to blogging as I would like to. That isn’t to say that I am going to stop blogging or even take a break anytime soon, but that realization sort of put things into perspective for me.

For the next little bit, while I am trying to push through this writer’s block and regain inspiration for some of the exciting series I would love to start this year, I think I am just going to write what feels right and put less emphasis on my series and bigger projects. Right now, my main focus is self-reflection, preparing for a new chapter of life, and closing out the chapter I am living in now.

I still have plans for a few series posts over the next 2 months as I begin to move, but I definitely think my schedule has been skewed more towards personal growth posts, some opinion posts, and a few things here and there that have been on my mind lately.

I hope you can all bear with me as I make the necessary transitions in my life and I will be back in full swing as soon as I feel up to it.

I would also like to thank all of the new followers who have joined me on this corner of the internet in the past few months!

    1. I don’t feel like I’m rushing really but I am trying to give myself a break while I keep writing because it really is cathartic for me to write when I’m feeling stressed:)
