Ugh. I am out of my writing momentum and, for me, this is a serious problem.
Dan Kennedy says that if you have the ability to produce, you will never go hungry.
I've taken that to heart, and it's something I always carry with me. I know I can produce. Write, create, strategize, make stuff up.
And, usually, I do it naturally as breathing.
Then, for whatever reason, you stop.
And the longer you keep on not doing something, the harder it is to get it going again.
Typically I have more ideas for what to write here than I can handle. I forget more blog ideas than I remember, and those that I do remember are still too many for me to write.
But the past couple of weeks, nothing. No spontaneous blog ideas. I usually get one to three every day, quite randomly.
So today I thought, hey, why not write about your lack of writing momentum, kill two birds, one stone.
How about that. That sentence has four commas. Far too many, really. But that's what happens when you fall out of writing momentum.
One important observation about all this is that even though I am out of momentum and that's not something I generally prefer being... I don't consider it bad.
I consider it to be the natural course of things. There's a natural rhythm and flow to things, all things.
If I don't feel like writing, I don't. I don't ever force myself to do things.
I thought it was interesting to watch the growing unrest in me. I get antsy when I don't express myself through writing. So what? It just means I learn about myself.
So there's that. I just ran out of things to say.
Also, autocorrect in OSX 10.9 Mavericks. Trippy.
