I’ve done it again. I’ve hit that dreaded middle and stalled. I did that three times with Prosperity and managed to come back all three times. This time feels different. Maybe it’s because I’m pressed for time with my writing assignments. Perhaps it’s life going on around me. It’s probably a little bit of everything right now, and I hope it will pass. At the moment, I have no desire to trudge through the pages to see where I went wrong. My mind is set on earning a decent living from writing, which has had its ups and downs these past several months. That goal will to take some time to achieve, I’ve come to realize.
Yesterday, I had several articles come back to me because the client closed the channels that they were under. They were kind enough to return the copyright back to me, so I will be posting them here soon. In the meantime, I’ve picked up the habit of reading again. I had fallen out of that habit a while ago, and it showed in my writing. Even my husband is pleased to see a book in my hand. He said that it was like I had returned to an old friend. He’s right. It feels good to read a book and escape into its story.
I’ve also taken up bicycling on a stationary bike. I don’t trust the drivers in my neighborhood. My goal with this is to strengthen my leg muscles so that I can go on long walks with my husband. So far, I’ve been riding for a mile each day over the past couple of weeks. I’m still managing to stay off of the cigarettes, which is a feat that I thought I would never achieve. July 24 will mark the 1-year anniversary of when I quit those nasty things.
While the block is bothering me, I’ve come to accept its presence for a while. My priorities have shifted, and I have to take care of the important things right now. Once those needs are met, I can figure out how to unblock myself. Perhaps I’ll be able to dive right in, as I always have. If not, I found a great article on beating writer’s block.
