Writer's Block, Sorta Kinda
The last year has been very challenging for me as a writer. I’ve been in what might be considered a block, though I’ve been writing through that in fits and starts. It’s more a lack of direction and an overall lack of desire that I think I’ve been experiencing. I’ve worked in collections for a long time, which has provided me direction, but I’ve struggled to come up with new collection themes. I haven’t really submitted anything for publication. I really haven’t had the desire to go through that process and receive the many rejections that come before hitting an acceptance. I view this last year as just a phase, one that I’ll eventually emerge from as a stronger writer. In the end, I don’t think there’s anything that the blogging experience can do to assist me in getting out of it.
