Sorry for the hiatus! After the excitement of my bike and the arrival of the new year, getting back into writing has proved to be quite a challenge – until I just sat down and started writing again. Then it wasn’t so bad. I had built up this invisible wall between wanting to write and actually doing it, and realised that the only way through Writer’s Block is to power through it. Otherwise, it becomes like quicksand. The more you struggle, the deeper you sink. Start off with baby steps, and get back into a writing routine, even if it’s 5 minutes a day. I wonder how many other writers out there are still recovering from the end of year holidays, and slowly getting back into a solid writing routine!
I really enjoyed this post by Ollin Morales – 10 Tricks To Motivate Yourself To Write – Right NOW
Check it out! And I think I’m going to print it off and stick it on my wall 🙂
On a cycling note, I’m happy to report that my bike and I have been enjoying some fun trips to the local shops. After cycling to the shops, I’ve realised how much more fun it is to cycle there instead of walking. Going downhill is super fun, and it’s relaxing to coast along. I need to get saddle-bag for my bike though, or a basket, so I can put the groceries in 🙂 My backpack can only fit so much!
