I am in a funk.
And I must apparently go through a funk once or twice every year.
For various reasons, I’m just having a hard time being “productive. There’s a lot of stuff I’ve been wanting to blog about but as you know, I haven’t been writing anything substantive in the past couple weeks. In fact, I’ve been pretty silent.
Why am I in a writer’s funk?
And because I have limited energy, I’ve had to save it for my family, preaching, counseling, and a few projects…
I’m not sure what writer’s block is but I can’t seem to translate the many ideas to something cohesive. I’ve actually had an article due for some magazine recently and it was amazingly laborious to put together 3000 words. That must have been writer’s block.
I used to thrive in being a multi-tasker but I’m wondering if everyone has a limit and if I may have passed that threshold of effectiveness.
Weary of criticism and misunderstanding
I know this sounds weird but after receiving my share of criticism and weird emails, it just feels better to chill. I really have a growing appreciation of ANYONE that puts there stuff – words, songs, art, sermons, books, thoughts, blogs, or whatever – out there for others to engage.
So, what do you do when you’re in a funk?
