Finding inspiration to write
Blog Posted:8/6/2019 12:09:00 PM
As a very beginner, I find it very very tough at times to write, to find material, to figure out what is in my head and what is in my heart, and find the words out there to put together. I watch others do so effortlessly and that actually makes it harder for me! :)
So I cannot write daily, but I am ALWAYS thinking of writing and inspirations, and then I write down or record little things to get me started - even if I'm driving at the time. But then when I see snippets later, or the next morning, the thoughts don't come back to me as they did so naturally when listening to music while driving, for one example. But not really the best time to put the pen to paper, or to put the keyboard to use.
And I know this won't be read likely, as I'm new here, but I still want to write down my thoughts right now, however lame and confused it may sound, so I can reflect on it later.
I've been going through a depression for about a month now or so. With that said, it brings me to continual writing about death, but also love for some reason. I think the negative things are for the obvious reasons while depressed, while those love words are coming from a few lost ones and from the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel" that I'm always searching for to get out of such funks. Anyway, my short thoughts on writing, and inspiration and what sometimes spurs my initial thoughts. And then makes me think of how others not only are finding inspiration daily - but are also finding such fantastic words!! -Jim
