The One Without a Witty Title

More than two weeks have gone by, and I still haven’t written a new post for this blog.  This is more than a simple case of writer’s block.

Just like a romance gone sour, I feel I have lost my passion to write.  The motivation to weave words into moving pieces has taken a one-way ticket to oblivion.  I’d much rather curl myself up in a corner and immerse myself in a book, or daydream the whole day while pigging out on greasy burgers and fries.

Could this be merely a phase?  I hope so.  It would be a shame to put all this hard work to waste.

Until I sort my goals out, I will be stuck in limbo, uncertain of what steps to take next.  I’m unsure of where I’m headed.

Now, this has just turned into an utterly boring blog post, devoid of any moral, social or emotional significance.

I’m pathetic.

  1. Happens to all of us, I think. :) We’ll still be here when you feel refreshed, and like writing. :)

  2. Aww cheer up buttercup! Every day is a new day!

  3. Don’t worry. It happens to all of us. We just sometimes lose our drive pero it comes back naman. No worries. =)

    Ako nga, I can’t count the number of times I’ve taken a hiatus in writing. But I learned that, when I’m in the mood to write, I should write as much as possible then schedule my posts to appear on specific dates. It’s such a life saver lalo na since it’s also hard to find free time when taking care of a baby too. More often than not kasi, I prefer to rest na lang than pen a post pa. So write lang when in the mood, then schedule wisely. =)

    When I started this blog over 4 years ago, I made it a point to update it every single day. Then my enthusiasm dipped and I attempted to put in a piece a week. Then I deteriorated to once a month and then my posts became more and more sporadic until a couple of friends had to remind me I have a blog! I now realise I haven’t written in almost a year and the last time I wrote before that was a year earlier!2011 is here and I’ve decided to get back to blogging and to make life easier, I don’t promise myself or anybody else a blog a day or even a blog a week but just that I hope to write often enough to keep my creative juices flowing and not ending up in writer’s block!Change has always been a dear topic but the title today does not reflect what I’m going to write about but very simply a change of blog. So friends, you can now follow me on: For the last time on Sugar, spice and everything nice – from slo, it’s Tally-ho!

  5. I’m feeling the same way I think… I took a year almost off because I wanted to make the most of my time with my newborn and I’m wondering if I even want to get back to blogging. But every now and then something comes up and I feel a spark… so maybe my passion is still there somewhere, buried under fatigue and responsibilities. I’m thinking of running a fun blog challenge sometime next year. For myself mainly, but if I invite others to join me, it will be more fun. It’s still very much in the air, but if it happens, I’ll let you know!

    • Hi Tat! Nice to see you here again :). Yes, please let me know if and when you start that blog challenge.
      I think I just need inspiration. A lot has been running around in my head lately…
