Sadly, as I am sure many of you have noticed, I have not been writing. Not only have I not been writing, I have not been publishing. For the past few months I have been focusing my energies mostly on work, relationships and preparing to move.
I will be returning to Ottawa at the end of this month, and will hopefully find myself with more time and motivation.
Writing is not something I ever expected myself to be so passionate about, and I have had the opportunity to test my own limits and intellect since the genesis of my writing career. This also means I am not particularly familiar with “writer’s block.” True, I have dabbled in writing before, but never to such a passionate and energetic degree as once I began writing about Psychology/Philosophy.
I’ve found you can’t rush writing, and you can’t force inspiration or motivation. If I am unable to produce anything of worth there’s no sense in producing anything at all.
I apologize for this long, drawn out dry spell, and will leave you with a haiku that exemplifies how I have been feeling as of late:
The purple hue of
the wisteria sings to
me as I fall to sleep…
