For many reasons and maybe none at all, I stepped back from my blog for a while.
I would like to be able to say that I stepped back for one particular reason, but honestly I’m not sure why I took such a break. I started this year off super strong. I was excited to read new releases. I was ecstatic for virtual book tours and new Netflix shows and new release movies. I had many posts planned out and arranged and scheduled. I was so excited to continue this writing journey.
And then… I’m not sure. Something just didn’t click anymore.
I tried to write through the great something so many times, but I just couldn’t get the words out correctly. They were not at all what I had hoped that they would be. And then, when I thought I could elaborate proficiently, the words just wouldn’t come.
I spent so much time worrying that every word wasn’t good enough. That everything tangible that had been stopping my writing wasn’t a legitimate excuse. That even though I wrote out my hardships, they still existed and continued to affect my headspace. This time, I couldn’t write my problems away. I couldn’t just hit publish and yeet the great something into the void because I had no idea how to describe it.
Even now, I’m not sure that I’m doing whatever it is any type of justice. But, I feel that although whatever it is that has stopped my writing for so long, I am willing to come back to writing. I hope that you’ll be patient with me, and that I will be patient with myself as I figure out how to navigate this space again.
Thank you, for still being here. And, thank you for taking the time to read this.
