I’m having serious writer problems.
Nothing inspires me to write at the moment.
For the past 6 years, I have had a run of productivity that was enjoyable and creative. I looked forward to the times I could sit down and craft a poem or write a quick blog post. There was the period in 2014 (while job hunting) that I put together a chapter book of poems and I wrote about everything from gardening tips to snippets about life. Heck…I even wrote a short story earlier this year. I once told myself that I would never write long pieces – I didn’t have the attention span. I probably shouldn’t doubt my ability like that, or make a big deal about “can’t/won’t do” something. The universe typically calls your bluff.
I’ve been reading more posts lately. It seems that many of my past favorite blogs have faded as well, so I’ve been searching for new things to read – and I’ve found a few.
The Haunted Wordsmith
Some prolific output in short fiction by a talented writer and engaging posts.
O at the Edges
Mr. Okaji writes poetry in eloquence and brevity. I’ve been following him for some time now, and I aspire to the ability he demonstrates (and frankly, the output of poetry he produces).
Derrick J Knight
A blog diary of sorts. Mr.Knight is recovering from knee surgery at the moment and writes about his day. He has a beautiful garden.
One of my favorite blog entry formats is the list. Other people’s lists are ways to get me to open my mind again and thinking of my own. Perhaps it will get me back on the path of writing.
Thanks for reading.
