How to Deal with a Loss of Writing Passion

Where Has My Writing Passion Gone?   I’m tired, not the I need an early night tired, but that bone tired. I ache all over and I have no energy left. My writing this week has suffered. I managed to publish two pieces last week. A new low for me. There was no joy in writing and no enthusiasm to try. Then I read this article from Tom Kuegler about his lack of interest in making Facebook videos.

The Trouble With Society Today

We are programmed to react to negativity, not positivity. When you visit my local chemist you have to park on the pavement. There is a proud sign in the window that states only customers can park outside the door. Yes, it is a pavement, but it is so large it accommodates cars and pedestrians. Whilst waiting outside, I saw a lady pushing a double buggy towards the cars. The buggy was empty, I have no idea why. She struggled to get the buggy past two of the cars. Having struggled with a pram, I got out and asked if she would like a hand.

My Goals Are Changing

Re-evaluating goals is important to all professionals. As some of you may have noticed, I have been missing for a few days. The reason was simple I was knackered. We have had a couple of hectic days and I wanted to chill on the sofa with a good book, rather than write. All writers need to chill and attend to their own needs sometimes. It is good to recharge your batteries. Over time I realised my goals have changed.

My Old Battered Best Friend

The one thing that has stayed with me, through ups and downs. Throughout my life, I have owned many wonderful pieces of clothing. I had an amazing leather jacket with tassels and a brown suede one to match. I was an 80’s child, it’s my only defence. None of these compares to my very old Guns ‘n’ Roses T-shirt. It is twenty years old, so when you look at the picture and say it’s a grey T-shirt and I tell you it was black, you will understand.
