When I Don't Feel Inspired to Write...

I haven't felt like blogging much lately. 

I have all kinds of excuses, which just means that I'm not ready to put in the effort. 

Some blog posts are easy for me. They just come naturally and quickly to the page...and those are the ones I enjoy writing. 

Others take some time and thought. Even a little research to ensure that I'm not spouting off random, incorrect information off the top of my head. 

And most of the time, it is hard for me to write a blog when I don't feel inspired. And I haven't felt inspired much lately, which I know is part of the season I am in. 

I do have a list of blog ideas. And I keep adding to it. And I hope to cross those topics/titles off of that list as I keep adding more. 

I tend to be good at starting things, but I have a harder time following through - especially when I am not feeling inspired. 

But, to me, inspiration is like emotion - ever changing...depending on circumstances. 

And I shouldn't do things just because of circumstances. 

I am feeling more and more of a desire to write articles and even an ebook. And I think the consistency of writing my blog will help. 

I know writers don't feel inspired all of the time. And I don't know how some writers are able to write books with little kids in the room...I can't tell you how many times I've had to close my computer and come back to an entry later due to my kids. 

But again, this is a season. It will not be this way forever. Eventually my little ones will not require or demand my constant attention...but right now it does feel like this will last for a long time! 

So, I will continue writing when I can, and even making time to write more. 

I've been thinking of this quote a lot lately...

If I am going to write articles and an ebook...it won't happen by itself. I will have to write to make that happen!! So I hope that you'll be seeing more of this blog in the near future as I take one step further in the direction of this dream!!


  1. Great and honest post Bri! Don't feel discouraged. I too have blog writer's block here lately, and my two at home are 9 and 15. Write when your heart leads and when the Holy Spirit is guiding you. That is when the best blogs are written, when you speak to so many, and when your message touches people's lives. Don't give up! You have alot to give to others!! And remember, this too shall pass. :)

    1. thanks Tammy! I appreciate the encouragement! Some days are harder than others. But I know I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing...even if I don't get the chance to write about it!! :)

  2. I hear ya' sister!! Sometimes I just have to force myself and then I don't think the post is even good. Ugh!! I'm right there with you. I remember the days I would post 5 days a week. What in the world? Sometimes I think I've said everything I need to say. Haha!

    On a sidenote, I just noticed your cute button. I'm gonna put it up on my page. :)
