*sigh* it's one of the many unanswered mysteries of life, I guess. Right up there with "Why do people actually like Peeps?" and "How the heck do Tyler Joseph and T.O.P rap so freaking fast?" I guess I'll never know.
You can't really call what I have writer's block. Oh, I can write. I have been writing. It's just the wrong kind of writing. Essays? You bet. Poetry analysis? We can do that. But ask me to blog? Journal? Just plain write?
|my face, pretty much.|
I suppose I'm a fortunate person...I haven't officially had a block on my writing for a while now. I was able to grind out at least a chapters worth in on a slow week, and even more on weeks when I could feel inspiration flowing. I've almost forgotten what this terrible disease--yes, disease--feels like.
tis very frustrating.
But on the bright side, while my writing has been out of the comission, I've been able to read a bit more--though I'm almost regretting my current book choice. Please, fluffy Christian teen novel, couldn't you have a warning label? Something along the lines of: "If saccharine sweetness turns your stomach, beware..." Yeah...I'll go back to my Death Note and Ender's Shadow, thank you very much.
The Melancholy of Haruhi Souzimiya, VIXX MTV Diary, and Sherlock have been keeping me company over the past week. I really appreciate the amount of laughter with which they have provided me.
Also, the thing that has managed to give me the most feels today? The Fault in Our Stars trailer came out today. Need I say more?
I've also been able to get a LOT of school done in the past few days. I never want to hear mention of postulates, theorems, and hypotheses ever again. If I have to conjugate yet another Korean verb, I may cry. And please please PLEASE do not ask me to go hunting for symbolic references in someone elses beautiful writing. It just isn't worth it.
The sad truth is that I'm getting bored of just having my characters walk and talk around in my mind. It's getting crowded up in there, but I just can't get their actions out onto the page. Everything I write seems to be mechanic and forced.
Guess the only thing to do is to be patient and wait for the faucet to be turned back on.
