Daily posting

Category: Life

Writing, lately, is not going well. I’m really not in a good place just now, very scattered, very depressed. I’ve been trying to post something daily, but I just can’t do it anymore.

I can physically type, but my head’s not in it. So, I’m simply going to write when I feel like it, at least for awhile. I also, eventually, need to do some offline writing, but I can’t write anything as fucked up as I am. I need something I don’t have right now.

    Hey, I hope things pick up for you. I hate slumps.

    “I need something I don’t have right now”

    Well, I’ve learned that things, as a rule, never deliver what they promise.

    Jesus, on the other hand, always does.

    Still praying and reading, whenever you’re able to write.

    When I find I can’t write but I need to do SOMETHING in that regard, I find doing some editing helps. Just pull up a finished piece or one in progress and instead of struggling to add to it or to begin the daunting task of starting afresh, just go through it making any changes that jump out at you, phrases or the odd word here or there. There’s always something. Helps me feel vaguely productive without actually producing new work I guess.

    Hope you’re feeling a bit better soon Michael.

    I find Jesus doesn’t help, even when I shove him up my butt.

    Rachael: I don’t mean “something” as a “thing.” I mean “something” in a different sense. Like, waking up next to a woman I love, being somewhere that feels like home, not feeling lonely. Jesus comforts you, and I’m glad, but He doesn’t comfort me.

    Alex: That’s worth trying.

    JeffV: Jesus might not like that very much, probably.

    I know the feeling; I feel this way most of my life. 🙂

    I know things will change and you’ll be writing away in no time.
