Hiatus: a pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process.
So it’s come to this now: my confessions. I’ve been away from writing, especially here on the blog, for so long that I can barely remember how to start. I have piles of halfhearted beginnings in my draft box; I have pages in my journal that look so lonely with just a few lines filled up…
I’ve allowed myself to find any excuse possible to avoid publishing to this page. Even with such wonderful support from family and friends (and even strangers!), I still have stupid little lines running through my head —
“It’s been since February! Why post now?”
“You don’t even have a target audience; you’d just be babbling to the whole damn interwebs. Where’s the sense in that?”
“YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WRITE ABOUT!”
Rewind now. I’ll try again to commit to posting more of my work. I started working on a book idea in March of this year and I’ve been flooded with plans for the book ever since. Problem is, I haven’t been writing much because I have the illogical fear that if I write down an idea, it has to be perfect because I’ll never be able to edit/change/fix it – EVER. Like I said, very illogical. I’ve allowed myself to get stuck in my fear. Things are looking up now though. I’ll keep you posted.
