I am struggling creatively.
It isn’t writers block. That is when you want to write but have nothing to put down. I want to write, have ideas, but can’t seem to consistently sit down and put words down. It is like I am being a total brat.
I am pretty sure this is a form of procrastination. I am SURE I have covered procrastination in the past. But this one… It is bugging me. I feel an internal struggle. And I am not sure with what. Is it me? Is life making it to where I am too distracted and crazed to get the words down? Maybe.
Or maybe I shouldn’t write.
I have wanted to write since I was a Senior in High School. I have dabbled and then became very serious and became published (online) and was on a hot streak! Then ever since then…
I have started thirty short stories. I didn’t finish a one. I have a great idea for a novella but can’t seem to put it together. I want to do the NaNoWriMo but I am worried I will quit a week in and be disappointed in myself all over again.
What in the hell is wrong with me?
That being said, there has to be a reason I haven’t quit.
I’m gonna go contemplate that for a bit. I will leave you with this. Something I saw on Facebook. One of those things people put up all of the time. A picture of words meant to inspire. I hate those. But this one resonated with me. Even two weeks after I saw it. So, I am sharing it with you.
I am so sorry to its originator. I have no idea who to credit here.
But I love it.
