So here I am fresh of my writing sabbatical, I am looking around and my blog looks empty. No shocker there, but then I saw a reflection in my computer screen and it was me, and I was pissed. How the heck haven’t I written anything on my blog in almost a good week and a half? That madness. Then I took a look on my bed and seen couple of dents based on all the freedom I had jumping in it and sleeping and etc. then I changed my expression into a smile.
Sometimes you just need a time off from writing. I was working on too many fronts managing an epic amount of work load, music album, independently publishing a book, and trying to writing scripts for my youtube channel and working on a short film. I felt like I was exceeding words, so I shutdown. I had been blogging for over 4 years consistently and since last year, I had enrolled in blogging everyday. Yup I said it, 365, ouch.
Shutting down is sometimes good, and it refuel you. You get to let out fresh thoughts and new perspectives and other elements of life that happen during your absent. I am more than ready to fill in the blank, but guess what I am back. I am ready to entertain and kick some blogging butt.
Have you ever taken a writing sabbatical? Have you ever had writers block?
Thanks for reading
PS: I have also been reading. I think I am addicted right now. I think amazon is going to send me a nice bill with the books I am about to buy and have bought. Also poor ol Barnes and Noble shall be seeing my face very often.
