Years ago I came across the statement “a writer is someone who has written today”. I must admit, I had no idea what that statement meant. When I was working on my dissertation I got the advice “write something every day”. Why?, I wondered.
After blogging for about a year, I abruptly fell out of the habit. And having stopped, it’s almost impossible to bring yourself to re-start. Either you’re a writer, or you aren’t. Either you’re a blogger, or you aren’t. Right now, I am not. I keep having great ideas to write about, but never when I’m sitting at the computer. I come here, I open a writing window, and either I have nothing to write, or I fail to craft something coherent.
So how do you get back into the habit of blogging? Not by returning at full speed, that’s for sure. Will it take this time? I don’t know…
