How things have changed since June 2012
|Can you tell when I stopped blogging?|
On “not really feeling it” right now
To succeed as a blogger you need to have real inspiration to write. I know that if I force myself to write, you guys would be able to tell. That bothers me. I’d prefer holding off writing until I really feel like putting pen to paper.
Another thing is that I’ve changed a lot since 2012 (it would be concerning if I hadn’t between nineteen and twenty-three). I’ve spoken before about how much of a difference EMDR made, and now I’m almost unrecognisably carefree. I live in a mountain town in Switzerland, I manage a team of people at work, and I’m proud to have got to a stage where nothing really scares me.
Let’s call this going on sabbatical
I’ll be back, I promise! I’d just rather it be on my terms, with no pressure to publish (and risk giving you something mediocre to read).
I’d also like some time to ponder my thoughts on being creative.
I know that I love writing, but I find it incredibly difficult to keep up with comments and emails. I think the world of everyone who values what I write, but I’d rather spend time on creating than replying to messages and marketing. Does this sound selfish? Perhaps – and I apologise if anyone is offended by this. I also apologise if I haven’t responded to your email. But it’s just how I am.
