to the writer

This week has been a whirlwind. The kind where you basically have to schedule bathroom breaks. It's fun, the good and fulfilling kind of busy, but I haven't had a spare moment to pull out my yellow notebook, put on the tea, and lose myself in a world of words.

It's funny, because I had actually been in a bit of a writing slump this past month. Am I writing because I'm feeling inspired or because I know I should? Am I wasting my time? Does it even matter? These thoughts made me shy around my notebook.

And then this week happened. And I have been desperate to capture my thoughts and stories on paper, feeling all giddy and anxious about it, so eager to write that it's almost embarassing.

So I would say to you, if you are feeling stuck or uninspired or doubtful about whether this writing shiz is really for you, break the rules. You know, the one that says to write every day. Because sometimes you just run out of stuff to say. So take a break, have long conversations with friends, eat really good food. Just take in life and your well will slowly refill without you even noticing.

Do I have to tell you that google reader is disappearing? Yeah, no.


  1. I've learned that. That not every day you will have something to write about, that if you take a step back that it will just flow naturally to you. Great post.
    Love, Kierra Makayla

  2. I agree, sometimes just letting yourself breathe is refreshing. it's nice to come back to the paper once you've regrouped. happy weekend!

  3. It's so true! Writing should not be forced. Writing should flow through you. I love reading your writing, dear!

  4. Perfectly said. Love how you captured those words in your picture- just darling!
