Sometimes it only takes one line of text to start a blog. That one sentence that suddenly enters my mind, could be the spark to ignite a new text. I don’t even need to be in the process of writing a blog. At any time of the day a sentence could just enter my mind. Like it’s nothing. I like that more than when it happens when I already have an idea. Just hit me by surprise, and let me find out what to do with the words. It helps me use my creativity, and not think about the writing process too much. I just let myself sail along the waves of that one sentence.

It really has been hard to write consistently the last two weeks. I don’t really know why that’s happening, but what I do know is that I want it to change again. Like I said before, I don’t really need to write daily anymore, but I still want to write a lot of blogs this year. How it has been going this month, I know for sure that I will start writing less and less if I keep on going down this road. So let’s take a turn, and ride down a new road.
Some days I’m just not feeling it. Then I just don’t feel like doing anything other then mind-numbing activities. I used to feel bad about that. What good could a day be, when I didn’t do anything productive? It is the perfectionist mind. Whenever I would just enjoy doing nothing at all, the perfectionist mind steps onto the stage, and will tell me that I should feel bad for not doing anything. Now I really don’t care anymore. These days are also just a part of life. It is just the way it is.
I love writing later at night. The world starts to shut down, so it gets quieter. Sometimes I hear a car passing by. Other than that, it’s only the sound of whatever music or video I play during my writing session. It creates a relaxing vibe. I don’t know if my writing gets better or worse because of it, but I think writing later at night affects free writing sessions. Recently I haven’t been writing much early on the day, just because I work from 10:00 to 18:00, so I rather write after eating my dinner. But since I have two weeks off after tomorrow, I want to try to write earlier on the day more often.
The last two days I didn’t share a blog. I don’t have an excuse for it. Of course there were reasons for why I didn’t write, but I could’ve written something if I really wanted to. But I didn’t. I just didn’t felt like writing anymore after I got home. What the biggest problem was, was that I just couldn’t break through this energy dip. Normally that happens when I chill too long after I get home. Then I’m just really in the chilling vibe, and just don’t want to work on anything anymore. Today I am back again for a free writing session. I still have some ideas I want to write about as well, but free writing just feels good for now.
