I don’t know if this is writer’s block or what. But, for the longest time, I haven’t been able to write. In the past, writer’s block has felt different. It felt like a stumbling block. It has never felt permanent – like it does right now.
I guess, this is why I’ve practically abandoned this blog. I really want to start taking this blog seriously. So, I keep telling myself to write more, because, eventually, I’m going to write something people want to read. I’m just afraid I’m never going to get there -this is a huge fear of mine. I keep giving into the fear by not writing.
I know I created this blog to write about people of color in the media and, at the moment, I’m not. However, I am a woman of color (even if I’m not a novelist). I write; at least, I did. I wonder if I will be able to get there again. I haven’t been reading much either. I’ve been in a really bad reading slump.
Honestly, I think it has to do with my favorite writer passing away. Ever since she left this earth, I haven’t been able to write or read much.
I want to change that.
I’m really going to start writing.
This time it will be different.
This was what I always say….
