A gate, a speed bump, or just a roadside distraction??
Ah, there’s nothing like writer’s block to stifle the winds of creativity on a blog. I have a potentially great post about The Instructor, Learning, & Memory that I can’t seem to get out of low gear. Strangely enough, it’s serving as a catalyst for this missive.
It’s not just writer’s block, although that does enter into it. It’s also about the energies of the day. You can mentally psych yourself up for certain things based on your calendar, but simple postponements can easily put paid to those plans. I’ve had meetings rescheduled over the last 2 days (including one already postponed from Friday) that managed to sap a lot of the energy away.
Some of that seems to extend into my writing. I really am trying to write for me and to get things out of my head and into some kind of recorded form, but competing thoughts, changes in momentum, and other distractions make it tough to write with any degree of focus.
Is it discipline? Habit? Dedication? Or is it my style that needs work? (am I too wordy for my own good?) I dunno. Too many questions and no easy answers.
I wonder what my more prolific writing and blogging colleagues will say about this?
