Falling Out of the (Writing) Habit

Writing is a habit; the more you do it, the easier it becomes. By that same measure, the less you do it, the harder it is to form the habit again.

I haven’t written—really written—in a very long time. I finished work on my third fantasy book sometime last year, and while earlier this year I finished off my current work (whose title I still have yet to decide), I haven’t done any serious creative writing since almost March. That’s a long time.

To top it off, I haven’t been blogging, writing for other sources, or really doing much of anything creative at all. Yes, I’ve been working here and there on some basic editing, but really nothing to write home about (pardon the pun).

And this depresses me, because I want to think of myself as a writer. But a writer writes, if not every day, at least once in a while. And it’s been quite a while.

So here I am, back at it again. There was a time when I would post at least one new article a week; I’m going to aim for something like this as autumn descends and winter takes over the air. I really enjoy blogging, and interacting with the community here on WordPress, and I just need to find my motivation again. Perhaps writing, if only a few words here and there, can help inspire me again.

I apologize for the absence, and I’ll be trying my best to return as often as possible!

Tell me what you think!
