Unfortunately, I’ve been sick for almost two weeks now and with that came a lot of negative thoughts that I thought I had more of a handle on, and they’ve been making me re-think many of my previous decisions up to this point.
I feel very lost, self-conscious and insecure mentally, emotionally, and physically, and it’s been quite a challenge. I started working at my old job again, I’ve been trying to read more and think more creatively about the blog and my content, and also focus on getting better – unfortunately, I’m struggling to find a balance with all that. So that’s why I’ve been a bit quiet and non-interactive for a while.
I’m also struggling with what exactly I want to DO with this blog, and what my aims are. I love the idea of authors reaching out to me and interacting with the bookish and publishing community, and I do make my voice and opinions heard – I just don’t know how exactly to go from there.
But I also made myself a promise that I want to do more than just bookish things and talk about/express my thoughts about things that are important to me, and to be more open and honest in my posts – something that I feel like I do struggle with in real life sometimes.
To my fellow bloggers, any advice on channeling creativity when you’ve encountered a block? And what do you think about posts like this? Let me know in the comments below!
