Blogging is hard work. Sometimes, those who don’t blog, or write, don’t understand the level of effort required to write well, write consistently, and write often. Occasionally, this leads to the dreaded apathy – or writer’s block. Currently, I’m going through an extended period of blocked apathy, which can be very frustrating for someone who likes to be a storyteller.
So how does one combat this malady? The question is unique to every writer, but for me it’s about clearing out the cobwebs and old posts, and starting fresh with new inspiration. Gone are the 100 drafts of ideas I might “some day” get around to writing.
Instead, I am starting Fall 2015 with a clean slate, and thinking of new ways to share my thoughts on wine, whiskey, food, and travel here on Luscious Lushes. While some old subject matter might reappear (realistically, how can it not?), I am moving forward with a fresh outlook.
Like many bloggers, balancing a full time job (or jobs), friends, family and the reality of life can bog you down and make it difficult to stay inspired. So what do you do to stay inspired? How do you stay on track, particularly during a change of seasons, career, or when life throws you a curve ball?
