Imagine taking a large pitcher of water and completely emptying it into a small glass. While the glass will be full… the excess water will spill over the glass and run in all different directions. This is what was happening to me, when I decided to walk away from my blog and take a long-needed break. I was not suffering from writer’s block, but instead idea overflow.
I would come up with one thing I would want to write about and begin thinking it through when another idea would hit me. I would lose focus on the first idea. This kept happening over and over. So much so, that I could not decipher one idea from the next. At one time, I did try writing my thoughts down, but they too would get jumbled.
I blame it on myself. I became so determined to get my blog out there that once I felt it was ready, I was mentally exhausted. Paired with working two jobs and taking care of my family… I was doomed to have a writer’s melt down. So, I walked away. Now, my mind is still full of a million thoughts and ideas, but I am working hard to mentally file them into more organized reflections.
There are so many feelings I want to express, stories I want to tell, and opinions I want to share. I am excited to be back and ready to move forward in my writing.
