It’s been so long since I’ve written a blog entry. Even worse, it’s been so long since I’ve done any kind of creative writing.
The drought started with a month long trip to Australia. I dragged my laptop across the continent, but only started it up to check my emails. I was much too busy enjoying my time there and I ended up not writing. Back home, I didn’t get back to writing for several weeks due to illness.
When I finally felt better and was physically able to get back to writing, I somehow did everything except writing. I thought about writing and about how I should get back to it, but I never actually sat down and wrote.
And so, in total more than ten(!) writing-free weeks have passed by. I have to face the fact that I have completely and utterly lost my writing mojo. The important question is: How do I get it back?
I desperately want it to return.
I am a deadlines person. I need that first deadline, which will make me write and, hopefully, break through the wall that is stopping me from writing. My fellow Cecile’s Writers can help with this, since their disapproval of my not writing a blog entry for so long is enough to get me writing.
I know this entry is not an inspiring piece of writing, but it’s a fresh start. I want the next blog entry to be on how one can get their writing mojo back. Perhaps someone – anyone – has some tips for me in the mean time?
