How does one go about with restarting a love/a hobby/a passion?
I used to LOVE coming here with a jumble of excited ideas and thought-trains all clashing into one another, impatient to just get out and get typed out.
Somewhere along the way, when I moved out of my hometown, I started losing the habit.
It kept dying with every other week and month.
But eventually it was my PhD that killed it for sure.
Academic writing dulled my wit and humor and overall love of composing notes and blogging.
Every two years I had resolve that yes, I'm going to write. I'm not going to surrender my joys and interests for my academic degree. Unfortunately that was about it. I'd made a comeback post resolving with renewed determination and grit, and then I had be back to square one.
The obsession with social media meant I wasted every free moment looking at content instead of creating my own stories or poems or anything/
I came to the sad conclusion that I would only be able to regain my own life once my PhD was over. And now it is over and I'm confused and getting cold feet. I couldnt help wondering -
- What if I've probably lost my own style of writing after so many years of disuse? What if I'm no longer good at writing. What if even if i do manage to write one good post, I'd still be undisciplined and not write frequently enough to keep the passion alive? What do I write about?
and on and on and on my head goes.
Anyway, if you like stream of consciousness, anxiety-infused irregular blog posts, maybe stay?
I'll share all about the niche things/situations I love, and you could read and tell me how I can dust off my dormant writing skills and get better.
