Change is Coming...

Change is Coming...

Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.
— Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

I’m not gonna lie: my creative brain’s been on a bit of a rough road lately. Although I’ve been hard at work with my second novel (over twenty thousand words in so far), much of that’s been done outside of the home with my writing group.

Writing while at home… that’s been much more of a challenge lately. That challenge hasn’t just been with writing my novel, but other forms of writing, too, such as this blog. I’m probably being overly dramatic, but I feel like the motivation I’ve had for writing here has taken quite the gut punch over the last two weeks.

That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy creating these posts. On the contrary, I find it to be a great way to write differently when compared to writing fiction - another way to improve my craft while sharing my thoughts on the writing profession. I even have a few unpublished posts with clear ideas ready to be expanded upon.

To be blunt, I’ve just not had the motivation at the moment.

I do expect things in my mind to turn around, especially with the holidays coming up - great times to catch up with family and friends. But in the meantime, I aim to publish my next few posts every two weeks, effectively going back to a twice-a-month publication schedule in terms of proper blog content. This should give my at-home brain enough time to buckle down and continue pumping out the quality content you readers expect.

In the meantime, expect my next post to drop two weeks from today. I only hope you will stick around with me during this blog-impacted creative slump.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
— Lao Tzu
 Expect more from me in the weeks to come.

Expect more from me in the weeks to come.

Thank you, as always.
