This is frustrating.
I thought I had a good idea for a blog post, I was all prepared to sit down and write it, I’m past my writers block I thought. Well, two paragraphs into it I was sat there looking at the two paragraphs I’d written, ruminating about how shit they were and wondering why I can’t seem to put two decent words together. Indeed, it seems all I can write about these days is my inability to write, it’s made all the worse when I think about how I’ve been like this since the beginning of January.
I think I know what the problem is though, I’ve got a new job. I’m due to leave my current place of employment where I’ve been working for the last eleven years, same employer, different job and location. It shouldn’t be a surprise that my problems started around the time I put the application in for this, clearly, it’s causing me some problems. The upshot of this is that if I’m right, this is only going to be a problem for another month.
This does make me think however, change really isn’t easy. A new job is going to be good for me, but the fact that I’m going to be leaving the place I’ve made so many friends over the last eleven years is going to be tough. It’s a big change and it’s not going to be as easy as I might have envisioned it would be, the effect it’s having on my writing is obvious.
I think I’m going to have to take my time and write my way out of this one. In the meantime, I’ll keep you posted as to my labours.
