My heart is full. I’m happy. Life is good and we all have a wonderful time. I’m not just painting a picture. I really think that sometimes when you have to face some obstacles your perspective shifts and you appreciate all the little things.
While my hear is full I feel like my head is empty. A dangerous statement to make, right? Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that I can’t think anymore. My head is empty in regards to writing. Over the last couple of weeks I came to the conclusion that writer’s block is real and it feels rather painful.
You try. You try to combine letters into words, words into sentences, sentences into paragraphs and create a meaningful story, a post, something. But it doesn’t happen. It’s emptiness. The words don’t form. The sentences are not created, the paragraphs don’t grow. And you sit there and you feel the emptiness.
I guess it’s all part of it. I’ve been blogging for 3 years now and I guess it took long enough for writer’s block to hit. It’s just so frustrating. And now it all makes sense: The blogging schedule, the little challenges, everything. All of it keeps you going. When you have a structure you might be able to overcome it. When you have a schedule with set topics to touch on then you can create something because it’s a habit.
The writing from the heart is wonderful. It’s feels so good. But when nothing is there to put on paper then it feels really bad. When you have nothing to hold on to, like Tarzan is holding on to the vine and swings from branch to branch you can hold on to your scheduled topics. And you swing from one to the other.
To be honest: Sometimes even the strongest vine breaks though. And you plunge as well. Maybe even harder. Who knows. I have thought about coming up with a blogging schedule from here on. I have set some in place (Tell Me Something Good) while I’ve neglected others (Picks Of The Week). I guess it’s all a learning process. Learning to stick to it and keep the head above blogging waters to then go with the flow again when it all gets a bit easier again. I’m glad you guys are still here. So let’s keep going and focus on the next couple of months of happy blogging. Empty head or not 😉
