Now that I’m home, I’m facing (slightly) more free time than I’m used to in Southampton and it’s got me thinking about how much I miss writing.
For my tumblr, I used to write multiple stories a day to a blog that grew with a hundred followers a day, but now I’m on a ‘break’ with an unforeseeable end and literally no inspiration to write anything, let alone specific requests.
I feel like recently I’ve been talking a lot about my book to a variety of people and I’d love to rewrite that. The problem there is I cringe at every single word I wrote because that book is now three years old and 16 year-old writer Sophie and 19 year-old writer Sophie are very different.
19 year-old writer Sophie is ashamed of 16 year-old writer Sophie.
I don’t have the motivation to write and I don’t have anything I really want to write about and that’s what I miss – having the motivation to want to write. I used to sit every night and write, sometimes I wrote thousands of words a day but right now I struggle to write a blog post every day and usually they’re in low three figures.
I’m lucky in that the reason I’m not writing is because I’m spending time with friends and family and loved ones but I wish I still had that creative outlet.
Thank you for reading,
That’s where you’ll find me:
