This morning, I was telling my parents about my plans for the next few artworks that I have in mind and my Dad suggested that I take a little bit of a break from writing. I was initially very adamant and I said that I would do no such thing, but after carefully thinking about it for a while, I have come to the conclusion that it wouldn’t be the worst thing to take a break from writing everyday, at least temporarily.
I have been at this for almost 700 days now and I have been juggling a bunch of things lately. It’s not that writing is wearing me out, but I definitely find it harder to find something to write about with the same kind of impact that my writing used to have. Writing means a lot to me, and I do not want it to turn into something that doesn’t mean anything anymore. I think that would be the worst kind of loss.
I’ll still try to be as regularly as possible, though. I’m going to try to go back to my journal-entry style of writing for a little bit. I know I’ve said this a lot of times before and never really gone through with it, and I know that this seems like giving up. But it really isn’t me giving up on writing. It just means that I need to take a breath, gather my thoughts and get back to writing better than I was before.
There has just been a lot going on and I would like it if it didn’t take a toll on my writing as well. Besides, I think that taking this break could be a good thing for me.
Let’s see where this goes.
Until next time!
