Breaking the hiatus
Gotta do it sometime, or perhaps not
Daily musings #614- Tuesday, 1 November 2022
I had been traveling for a while. And my writing stopped entirely for nearly four weeks. Not because I wanted to, but because I just could not fit it in.
I also realized from this time that this took the pressure off. Now I find that I have realized that I could write on my own terms. And that it is okay to do that. The intent to write each day is still there, but it is not a necessity or a compulsion anyway. That indeed is what it meant to me.
In a nutshell, I decided that… When the perceived value to me from writing exceeded the value of not-writing, I would write. If the value was more from not-writing I would therefore not write. A complex way to say a simple thing, perhaps.
The good news to me today is that I broke the self-inflicted hiatus.
