IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!

Welcome to Crys Fey's Blog Hop at WriteWithFey!  Today, we are combining with IWSG and sharing our story about writer's block, depression, and/or burnout and how we overcame it or what we are currently doing to heal.

Here we goooo!

Since the beginning of this summer, my creative flow has waned significantly! First, I had barely found the desire to edit an already completed novel but the further into the story I got, the less interested I became. I switched to writing a short story: I came up with the outline from beginning to end and started the first chapter with full power but then my juice dropped off the precipice of doom! Next, I decided to illustrate a children's book for my little boy because I've refused to go to the library because of COVID19 so I figured I could write up a library for my little one and get him interested in reading again! But then my desire to do that stopped. I tried creating memes (which I enjoy doing) but even that fell flat!

It was so disheartening that I cried and went to pray over it. I felt peaceful during the prayer and the thought to fake it til I make it and I will succeed came to me. I decided that just because I don't feel like doing it doesn't mean I should obey that notion. I can work past it.

I know this may sound pretty simple but it sure gave me courage to move past the horrible funk.
