There are days I just can’t write.
When I say that, I don’t mean I didn’t write anything, since I am always writing. There are days that I don’t work on the story that has been brewing in my head. The one I thought I was writing next. After all, I am still writing my series of stories on the Portal Seekers and the magic they find.
But I have a little problem………
I can’t seem to write it.
The words won’t flow. There’s nothing there except a few bits and pieces that I can’t seem to connect.
And that’s okay too.
My brain composes a multitude of sentences each and every day. My trains of thought are going every hours, sometimes on schedule, sometimes not. But they still move. Sometimes, they crash into each other, jumbling what I am thinking and causing a mess and a meltdown.
I often feel like I am writing drivel. It’s a sentiment I have shared before, I know. But it remains true no matter what.
But that’s okay too.
It’s okay not to be perfect all the time. It’s okay to do something mediocre sometimes. After all, you can always do better.
I have to remind myself of that a great deal.
And sometimes, the story I can’t write will begin to flow after I’ve taken the pressure off of myself to get it right the first time.
But I need to let that happen naturally. Story writing, at least to me, is an organic process. It’s not something I can force to grow. Just like other facets of my life, I have to let it be until it’s ready to go.
And it’s okay. Even if, sometimes, I feel it’s not okay. Because, in the grand scheme of life, it will all work out. Eventually, just like I keep writing my story, I will write the stories that want to be written.
