Do you all know that feeling in which you can’t seem to get to something, although you want it? Well, it happens to me all the time when it comes to this blog.
My usual ‘excuse’ is that I’m attending university and so all my hours in a day are pretty much buckled up with study work, but I’m afraid that this isn’t the whole truth.
I have been engaging in multiple things, from big to small; organising events at uni, seeing friends at the weekends, reading books (to complete my Goodreads reading challenge) and spending time on the couch with my family, plus chasing my cat around the house. Very little time was left for writing, and if I had it, I filled those gaps with other activities.
The thing is now, that I’m planning on doing more photography in the future (starting with finally buying that good camera I have wanted for ages, my friends don’t even take me seriously anymore as I still express my wish to purchase it) and writing about what I photograph. The posts won’t be coming up in a scheme, but as my second term should be more ‘easy going’, I might find the time to finally sit down and write. I imagine you have heard this so many times over, but I genuinely like this. It’s just the discipline which is lacking.
I will be brainstorming for ideas – starting with figuring out where I put the piece of paper with all my ideas written on it… and subsequently starting to write again. God, I missed it, I realise now, and surely after reading the advise article on students who want to take up the writing life.
Enjoy your Sunday!
