Thoughts

So it seems that I have gone a few days without posting. I did create something on Friday, but on Saturday and Sunday I was very busy and exhausted. This challenge has become incredibly difficult for me and doing something every single day is no longer realistic. You can call me a quitter but please keep your criticisms to yourself, please.

I am not quitting however, but I do need to take a short hiatus from this. I think the every day pressure is doing more harm than good in terms of my creativity. I feel like a squeezed sponge with no more water left to give.
I need to think and work on some new guidelines for myself so I can get back on track. Either make something every weekend, or make something every other day or couple of days.

Another thought, I need to try and pimp out my blog more when I come back. The lack of comments, feedback and encouragement has really hampered me as well. I am not saying that I need reinforcement to be creative but it does help in wanting to show what I have done. I am not sure if this is a flaw in my personality but it is what is.
(P.S. I do appreciate those who have been following me though!! And I thank you so much for sticking with me!)

With that, I will see you all in due time and hopefully I can come back to this very soon with much more gusto than before!

  3. Hi I’m visiting from #commenthour. I know exactly what you mean about being burnt out. I only blogged 5 times this summer. With kids and a million other things to take care of its hard to squeeze in writing sometimes, and the lack of feedback hinders me too. I hope you come back and give the rest of us hope to keep plugging along.
