Finding my lost mojo

Indecision

Blogging has been fun for the past 2 years, but recently it seems I’ve lost my mojo. I think about Crayon Writer everyday, but somehow I never could make myself put my fingers to the keyboard.

Part of it has to do with being a perfectionist. I didn’t reach my 400 cold call goal, and I haven’t followed up properly with those calls that I did make. But I have to realize that life still happened and perhaps my readers still want to know what’s going on.

So how am I going to find my lost mojo?

I’ve decided that I’m just going to write about whatever’s going on, even if it isn’t directly related to my writing business.

Crayon Writer is a blog about my life as a single mother of a now 4-year-old daughter, and it’s about my goal of being a freelance-writing, work-at-home parent. Along the way I may work a full-time job, struggle with daycare, and dabble in less lucrative writing ventures. In other words, I may just live life while I reach for my goals.

Though I haven’t done a poll in a while (a long while, actually), please feel free to let me know what you think of my new method to finding my lost blogging passion. A couple of readers did tell me they enjoyed Crayon Writer because it was about a real life aspiring writer. If that’s what you enjoy too, you’re definitely in the right place.

Stay tuned.

    You will simply write your way out of your slump, my friend. I’m also a freelance writing single mom and I’ve been a fan of your blog for awhile. Your posts encourage me to keep pressing on. Be mindful that the victory is in the process not the destination. Keep your head up because there are those who are rooting for you. 😉

  2. Take a vacation. I usually go to the beach, and write by pen and paper again. It usually encourages my brain. Good look to you!

  3. hi Theda,
    I often have that same problem of getting my fingers active on the keyboard…
    I agree with your decision to write about other things too. I think every blog should have an “other things” category. Sometimes that is the most interesting reading!

    I absolutely love your discovery of writing about your life. This is precisley what I have found. Writing is so much more effective when we let our heart pour out. We shouldn’t restrict our writing with all of these “shoulds and should nots”. Especially when it’s on our own blog. By just writing about what’s on your mind you will rediscover the passion . The vision will come to you as to where you want to be. I write my diary in a Word document and then many times turn it right into a blog post. It’s so freeing ( I know this isn’t a word- LOL) to just write what truly is on your mind today.
    You keep going!
    All the best,
    Eren Mckay

      Awwww, thanks Eren! I will definitely write what’s on my mind, and if you want to follow along with my really random thoughts, check me out on Twitter (not that random, but moreso than here).

      Funny how much I’ve written now that I’ve freed myself.

      All the best to you too!

  5. I’m constantly looking for inspiration, regardless whether I need a subject or not. Sometimes it can be difficult, and I feel like a hamster on the “content wheel.” I think that it is important to step away occasionally, but when it’s time to start back, just jump in and it will flow eventually.
