Itinerant – a person who travels from place to place. As a writer we are itinerant like, traveling from story to story through the words we weave together. However sometimes there are roadblocks and detours, and that is where I am at.
I don’t want to hate writing. I don’t want to lose my muse forever. Some changes need to be made to assure these things do not happen. I have been close to a post a day for 5 years now. Lately I am struggling to get posts done. It causes me anxiety and guilt which I don’t need to complicate my life. So, I had to come up with a plan.
I will no longer struggle to post a daily word prompt challenge (sorry Fandango!) but that doesn’t mean I wont occasionally join in on the prompt. I need to clear my head and sometimes the best way to do that is to write it out. I will be writing more on my own whether it be what I am feeling, hoping, reliving or just flat out dreaming. I will still come close to a post a day, but I will no longer demand it of myself.
I hope my readers will not be offended by this change in course. I feel I am just ready to relax a little and regroup my life. And my writing is a part of it. So, this week I will begin some changes. I hope you will all bear with me and stay along for the ride. I can’t promise it will always be fun, but I will always put a little bit of me into all I do.
Thanks for reading and sticking with me. May you all have a wonderful new month and remember Spring is just around the corner – HURRAH!
