I think everyone who writes, or does anything creative runs into this a couple of times. And if you don’t, well, that’s great and I’m definitely not jealous of that.
I have a few posts lined up that I want to write, so it’s not like I have a writer’s block where I don’t know what to write. I’ve had that before as well, but it’s a different feeling in my experience. Fatigue is when you know what to write, but just don’t have the mental energy to do so. For example, I was supposed to write my next book club entry for last Friday, but I didn’t get it done, so I decided to move it to today. I spent all weekend not writing it, and now we’re here, and it’s still not done. So the goalpost gets moved up a bit more.
I’m also still nowhere near done with the next chapter of my story. I just can’t find the willpower to sit down and write.
I personally think having a good structure and challenging yourself is the way to go about it. The past few months have been very slow for me, and I haven’t really had much to do. When all you do all day is sit around and play video games, it becomes very difficult to focus up when you do have to do something. Luckily, I got a lot better contract at my job for a lot more hours, so starting this upcoming week I’ll be busier. Not too busy to have no free time, but busy enough to feel like I’m actually doing something with my life. I also need to do a couple uni courses this year, but we don’t talk about that, because that just makes me depressed.
I don’t really have a point to make today, I’m just curious if other people recognize this feeling of wanting to write, or create something, but just not having the energy to do so. Let me know if you agree, or if you don’t have that at all. I hope to be back on Wednesday for another review of the new Tensura episode, and Friday for the next book club post. Thanks for your patience everyone!
