Revamp


I was missing from blogging for a very long time. Reason I think I had the worse writers block of my life, don't know if I can shake it yet. I will surely try.

Why did I get writers block, because I became happy, oddly so but the truth. So all my poetry was dark and gloomy and when I did not feel that way anymore I had no idea how to write as we know my tap was intensely emotional and I could make everyone feel what I felt through words. So now the new me needs some experimenting. I am not sure yet if I will close my other blog or if I will continue with it as is.

For now I will reinvent my blog and also go say hi to everyone I missed dearly, but had no words to share with.

Welcome back. Good to see you and know you are well. I found, too, that happiness tended to decrease my need to write. I've gotten over that and can write even while happy now.

Thank you Chrales, well that will be my mission now, to figure out how to write when happy:) because I am not going back to unhappy again.

There's a story on the NYTimes.com today about learning to mellow w/o losing your edge.

It is possible for you to be artistic and reinvent your art w/o being a gloomy teenager. You're just changing. It doesn't mean you stop living.

Hey there, you! Good to see you back again!

I went through something similar a few years ago: I got two books in a trilogy finished, then became too happy to finish the third. Still isn't done, though I have gone on to write other, more upbeat stories since then...

I've missed you.

I know I am changing Matt:) and I have long passed the teenager stage so I honestly dont think it was that ;)...thanks:)
Missed everyone too Steve:)

Writer's block sucks, doesn't it? The good news is that it's never permanent, although it feels like it. And reinvention is an elegant solution. Good luck!

Thank you Rick:)

Just let it go. Half of writer's block is being prepared to write the moment you do find the voice and the inspiration.

Good to see you again!
