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!

Getting Stuck and Moving On

There are some days when I feel really stuck in life, and that it’s difficult to ever get back on my feet. Challenges and worries overpower hope and motivation. Trying so hard to return to my most productive state is a feat that is closer to impossible. This is me when negativity takes over…

However, I have faith that there’s a purpose for everything. My current situation will probably make sense in another day, week, or even a year. Those moments are the most surprising ones which freely gives off my unwavering smile. A satisfaction of getting through the storm and moving forward. How I wish I could see myself at that moment again. I am still waiting. Pinching, punching, forcing myself to continue moving forward. At times, I look back. Not for regret but for inspiration. Changes that happened throughout the years before I came to my current position. Those make me grateful for everything.

Now, I have to continue. Press every button and find the green one. Gently guide my fingers and toes. Small steps. Little by little.

Keeping a Record

IMG_20150519_120652There is a certain form of satisfaction whenever I write down words on my journal, planner, or any piece of paper. I still enjoy (and much prefer) writing with pen/pencil and paper. If I stare on a black MS word page, my mind would wander all over the place. It could be from the things on my table or many random sites on the internet. Unlike when I just use a pen, I shall get a peaceful time alone with my notebook and just write anything down.

Many things would still be on my table, and the noise coming from the tricycles, cars, and people walking in front of our house would be there. But in this case, I feel more secured and I know that I will be finishing something. 😉

The colorful covers of these notes are also helpful in giving some inspiration. They are like pulling me to write and use them as I go on with this journey of creation. Even though I have dozens of journals and notebooks with random thoughts scribbled on the pages, I can’t seem to have to courage to share them yet. I hope someday I’ll find the strength to read through them again and finally let them out of the pages.
