Being Genuine & Writers Block

Being Genuine & Writers Block

Whoa what a title! Today I genuinely didn’t know if I’d be posting or not, and even though I have several drafts ready for publishing… I just wasn’t feeling it.

My goal on here has always encompassed being as genuine and real as possible on an internet platform, and I know that my best writing (and generally my best received posts) are when I am being genuinely me. Baring yourself to an online community can be a bit tricky and scary, because ultimately for better or for worse what we write and post is judged by people we haven’t even met!! (Mostly!!).

So, I went for a walk and I just got thinking about what I could write etc etc… And now here I am, still walking, telling you just that. Is there a point? Who knows, I guess other than here is me being as genuine as possible about the reality of blogging. It’s awesome, don’t get me wrong, but as pretty much everyone, blogger or otherwise, knows, writers block is a real thing. And for me what gets me through that is returning to my most genuine style; just chatting, as if to a friend 😁

Besides my ramblings, I hope you take away that it’s okay to be genuine, to be you, and to be proud of that, because I think we become stuck when we lose sight of what that is… Deep, I know. But true.

I would love, as ever, to hear your thoughts on this, because part of the fun of this community is the sharing of thoughts and wisdom ❤

Best wishes for your weekend – I hope you’re all having a great one when you get to it!! Are doing anything today or tomorrow? Would love to know!!

P.s. I’m thinking of doing a Q&A soon, so please feel free to email me or comment on my Instagram, or dm me, any questions you would like answered!! 😁 xx

P.p.s these are some photos from said walk 😅😁

    I honestly feel you :/ I’m currently having a huge writers block as well but I’m working on getting new ideas. I hope things get better for you! xxx

    I completely agree! I’ve felt kinda stuck when it comes to posting these past few months and along with other stressful life situations it all became a mess lol. I’m still trying to get a grasp of getting back into blogging and writing in general – it’s like finding myself again and making a mental note that the reason I started blogging was to simply be myself and share my thoughts with others (as if chatting to a friend, like you said). Really related to this post! Lots of love and hugs <3 xx

    Thanks! And I feel like maybe it is just part of taking a break… like maybe we need a little writers block before we can write something awesome? haha! However I am very excited to see what you will be posting, and how you theme you blog for autumn!!!:D xxx

    Aw thanks Aqsa!!!! And yes that’s EXACTLY how I feel!!! I guess the breaks are necessary and then afterwards you have that moment where, like you said, you remember why you started blogging/writing in the first place!!I’m going to go head over to your blog now to share the love 😀 Can’t wait to see your posts! <3 xx

    Love the photos. I honestly have no idea how to get over writers block. I guess you could just take a break and let the inspiration come to you. I often get writers block and it’s often at the worst times like in the middle of an exam where I have to do a creative writing piece. Being genuine is scary as well, like you said, people are harsh and judge you even though they don’t know you. I love your posts and hope the writers block leaves soon xx
