It’s the second week of January and whilst everyone else seems to be full of hope and optimism for the new year, I feel like I am desperately lagging behind.
I have really struggled to get into the new year (it feels like this month has already lasted forever!). It’s been tough, I’ve been ill and very tired (as have a lot of other people by the sounds of it, nasty germs around at the moment!) and I just can’t seem to get going.
I’ve felt down about my blog because I just haven’t been able to get inspired to write anything. Before Christmas I couldn’t wait to get tapping on the keyboard, these past few weeks have been difficult. What’s happened?? Where’s my blogging mojo gone? I think it got packed away with all the Christmas decs!
That’s life I suppose, ups and downs, particularly at this time of year. So, I’ve been reading a lot of posts instead whilst I’ve been feeling writing ‘lethargic’. They have been brilliant, informative, entertaining and inspiring. And whilst I have still felt like a bit of a loser because I haven’t been able to get my arse into gear, they have given me some motivation.
Having read a few posts about writing tips and resolutions, one thing stood out for me – that I should just keep writing. Even if it’s a few words a day, which turn into a few sentences, which turn into a few paragraphs, which turn into a post. Even if they never make the cut and sit in my drafts forever.
So, that’s what I’m doing here, writing down a few words about where I’m at right now. Whether they make it onto my blog I don’t know (I’ve decided they will!), but I feel a whole lot better for having finally put fingers to keyboard and written down some words in some sort of order!
