When you haven’t written on your website in forever it feels a bit strange to try to just jump in when the first words off of your fingers may not seem “worthy” enough for such a break. Why is it that a pause in my life here makes my brain think that I need some sort of big, dramatic reentrance into the world of writing. It reminds me of when I first got a phone that could take photos and I struggled with which photo should be first. So today I just write in hopes that writing will break up this writers block that I have had for so long.
My first post back doesn’t have to be profound or life altering; it just needs to be so that I can fill up more pages with more of my words. I remember when I used to love writing and I want to get back to that. I started to censor myself because I didn’t want to ruffle anyone’s feathers but then the stress of holding everything in became too much.
Thank you for coming to my writing exercise, I hope you’ll join me again soon and I promise I’ll look less skeptical.
