Due to a total mind blank, my blogs have been seriously lacking of late. I sit at my computer ready to type and will the words to come flying out of the tips of my fingers like magic from Harry Potter’s wand (see what I did there…topical 🙂 ) but something is going on. They are sticking at my knuckles and spluttering, like shy little children hiding behind their mother’s skirts.
And I don’t know why! Maybe it’s because I don’t have anything to moan about at the moment. (We won’t mention the English summer). Don’t get me wrong, I want to write something; I want to create something that you guys respond to, and I want to stand on my little soapbox and shout my opinion, but nothing seems to be bothering me enough to have an opinion on it. Maybe I have some sort of critical illness; this isn’t my normal path. I have had a few moments where I have clenched my fists and grit my teeth, and then it’s passed in a wave of peace. So what? Worse things have happened at sea, I think, and my thoughts stray elsewhere.
Seems like I might have come across a bit of an eternal circle. Life happy, writing lacking. Life sucking, writing flowing like a dam that has broken. Oh lord, maybe I’ve grown up. Now I’m closer to thirty than twenty, I may have matured. Shudder.
So this might be a little cheeky, but I’m offering up a prayer to the forces that be, whoever they are…..
“Hi! Look at me!!! I’m over here! I know it’s a bit much to ask, but could I be happy and inspired all at the same time? And also maybe win a little on the lottery and have my council tax bill go away? Ooh and if you could see it fit to let my car sail through its MOT next month (despite the weird whirring noises being emitted from the engine) then I will be eternally grateful. Many thanks, Kind regards. ‘Belle xxx” PS sorry if that’s pushing it a bit. Definitely the happiness and inspiration one though”.
