Sometimes you’re supposed to have a post prepared for a certain day and you’ve got nothing interesting to comment on or original to say. Sometimes there isn’t an idea you want to meditate on or a friend you’d like to shout-out (not that you’re not all great, please forgive me for that one). This my friends, is called writer’s block. I’ve got lots I could say, sure, but lack the proper tools to convey said lot.
In that, posts like this are born. In all seriousness, it’s important to keep writing (anything) even when you feel like you can’t. Detachment from your craft breeds passivity, and even though you may not necessarily be proud of what you’ve written when you feel like you can’t write (honestly, it’s doubtful I’ll look back at this and say “wow, I sure have got a gift!”), it’s important to push through those moments and come out the other side knowing how to navigate dry spells.
That being said, I’m going to share a playlist of songs I like to listen to when I’m feeling creative. Feel free to use. I call it “not embarrassing”, because I have nothing to be ashamed of, right?
