Chasing the Writing Bug

There are numerous opportunities for me to start bringing life to the unimaginable stories out of my head. But most of the time I slack off instead. Then getting annoyed at the end because of wasted hours.

Frustrations

Writing has always been one of my toughest frustrations (next to singing). I’m aware of how random I could be throughout the day, so I’ve got to make use of my productive hours well. However, the actual writing tends to come rarely these days. 😥 This is due to my lack of a fixed writing habit. I try to be consistent with my schedule, but distractions greet me which I embrace so openly.

Bothersome distractions

Online sites are the worst!

I can skip to multiple tabs in a single screen. Spend a lot of my precious minutes reading through random texts, staring at unfamiliar faces or browsing through same-old videos. This habit built through the months of less writing made me lose focus. Now, I’m like a child having an extremely short attention span.

I’ll only go back to my senses once the day’s almost over with a blank screen still waiting. 😦

Chase and Lessons

In the massive transit of life, some individuals fall short in enthusiasm. The drive to move forward and cross multiple obstacles just to get to the goal. This is my current struggle. I have been through similar phases with moments of uncertainty as my constant companion. It’s guarding me against doing what I wanted to do.

Then through the chase of my dreams, one of the most frustrating to handle is financial constraints. It did come to me at some point where I drained my resources while daydreaming to improve my skills. I miscalculated. I fell fast and drifted farther than necessary. Still, these served as lessons for me to overcome such challenges. I have to be brave to continue with the run.

Hope that I can finally catch the writing bug again. Inspiration and the drive that I used to have, how I wish to face those again. This time, I’ll do my best to hold on.
