I knew that once the baby comes in July, I would need to take a blogging break in order to bond with her and figure out what our new normal will look like. What I didn't account for was how early this inability to write would come; not because of a lack of time but because I struggle to even form a coherent thought.
You see, I have started no fewer than ten drafts in the last month and have yet to finish any of them. I come up with an idea for a post and immediately set about working to fleshing it out, but after only five or ten minutes, I hit a brick wall. My brain seems to shut down and I can't put any more mental effort into it. When this happens, I give up and click over to Pinterest, because it doesn't require much thought at all to repin things that grab my attention.
So... that's why I haven't been posting much lately. And honestly? I'm trying to be okay with this dry spell and instead, focus on preparing my heart for the next season of motherhood. But, man, is it hard. I love to write and I have so many ideas for posts that I think you all will love. Not being able to see them through is frustrating. But, I keep remind myself that this is just a season and I will be able to write again soon.
Until then, I'll post when the thoughts completely form and if you don't read anything from me for a while, you'll know what's going on. And... if anyone has any tips for breaking out of this pregnancy-induced-creative-funk, I'm all ears!!
