How’s it going? I want to talk a bit about something a little embarrassing for me personally (for some reason or other–we’ll call it “inspiration” for now until I think of something better).
Let’s get to it.
For some reason, I find that if I’m upset, mad, frustrated, or what-have-ya about some other area of my life, I find writing to be difficult until I calm down (unless I’m writing about the thing that’s upsetting me).
Maybe I’m being human or something–I don’t know if this is a widespread thing among writers. There are probably some who can use it for energy, or focus that strong emotion into creativity.
I find it better to let it pass or resolve the issue if I can before moving on.
I’m not sure why this is–it seems a little silly to me. I mean, it’s not like I’m five and somebody called me names or anything. Maybe I just have to better allocate my emotional energy (that’s probably the ticket).
Does that ever happen to you?
Drop me a line in the comments–I’d like to hear your thoughts.
I’m not upset for days or anything (or try not to be). It’s just that my emotions throw me off at times.
Maybe it would help if I were 100x busier.
Have a great rest of your day.
Until next time,
