Do you know how it feels,when you can’t do something you love to do for a day or two? You feel incomplete right? unfulfilled!
Now try and imagine how it feels when you can’t do that exact thing for more than one week. Yeah! I can actually try to picture your facial expression right there. 🙂 . feels like “lifelessness”. not trying to be too dramatic, but that was how I felt when I was forced into the mode of UNPLUG because of ill-health.
Before blogging became my passion, I would easily scribble thoughts,ideas, prose,or poem in my paper journal every now and then. After blogging became a part of me(i believe it is now par of me). I would write a draft in my note or plain A4 size paper ,I have a lot of that all over the house,and then develop them on my devise when I am ready to post.
I write daily depending on my mood,or my schedules,sometimes I watch out for daily post,or other challenges from other bloggers to spur my inspiration when I feel a blockage.
When I got a little under the weather, the story became another thing. I tried to get over the pain I was feeling in my body by trying to write,all of a sudden my device started messing up, I would see other post coming up,and comment,but when I want to write a new post ,it was difficult this persisted for days,I was literally miserable!
I tried and tried again,even on the sick bed but nothing happened. It was really painful missing out on all activities with my fellow mates at writing 101, but I really got to learn that I needed rest all around,even from blogging!.
Come unto me all ye that labour, I will give you rest!
When I began to feel better, my body was getting back to full vigor again,my phone device was still messing up, so I went to the stores to get myself a new ASUS notebook dedicated only to writing of my books and blogging. *Dancing*. I didn’t enjoy the break,but I am glad I was forced to take it. Now I am back on my feet ,with a brand new laptop to work with.
Talk about blogging and writing made easy for me right, ;).
