Wow, it has been over a week since I have written.
The week actually flew past.
I did try to write, but every time I tried, my head went completely silent.
It was not as though it was empty.
It was full. It was racing.
It was contemplating and figuring and planning.
But it had nothing to write. When I tried to type, my mind went silent.
There was nothing I could put to words on the screen.
(I wanted to say words on paper, but that is not the way anymore is it?)
The words were gone, my mind could not speak in writing anymore.
It could only contemplate, figure, and plan.
That was my week. A head full of things, yet nothing to write.
This coming week, however, I already have Music Monday planned (though not yet written), and things I could post for other days too. I think my head will have an easier time of writing this coming week, it has already been thinking in writing, and I have been able to get through this post rather easily.
The week 'off' from writing was a cleansing of sorts. (I even cleaned out 2 entire closets too! A true cleansing!!)
It showed me that, sometimes, you should not force the writing. It is better to just let your brain do what it has to. Let your brain contemplate, figure, plan. And when it is finished, the writing will come again.
A couple of question to my fellow writers:
What has been the longest gap in writing, or blogging, that you have gone through?
Was it hard to get back to it when you did?
Please share - writing is tough at times for all of us, and to know we aren't alone sometimes eases the burden we put on ourselves, no?
