I’ve been thinking about how we writers/bloggers get going, when the words and ideas won’t form.
Why do we think that everything we write has to be perfect? Life isn’t perfect, so why do we torment ourselves and insist that our writing is spot on the first time?
If the words won’t come, we’re failures. We beat ourselves up and the word and ideas retreat even further into the back of our minds.
I think sometimes we have to place a bit more trust in ourselves. Trust that although the words may have gone AWOL at that particular moment in time, they will return. We just need to cut ourselves a bit of slack and let our imaginations and creativity find themselves again… in their own time.
