Hey everyone hope you’re doing well!
It’s been a while (I sense a pattern here) since my last post. If you haven’t had a chance, please have a read of my previous short story here. I have been struggling with writers block for quite some time which is equal parts frustrating and disheartening. Nothing beats those moments of inspiration, when an idea hits you and all you want to do is help it flourish into something readable. I’ve started countless new stories and haven’t been able to finish them. Not even close. The passion for these idea’s has diminished over the last six months or so and I can’t wait to feel excited about a piece again soon. If you’ve suffered with writers block and have any tips on how to combat it, please let me know in the comments!
As some of you might remember, a few months back I was worried about the outcome of my degree. My university experience was a wild ride, one I never wish to do again. The relief I felt as soon as I submitted my final piece of work was like nothing I’ve ever felt before. All the stress, worries and difficult times suddenly disintegrated before my eyes and drifted off into the atmosphere. That’s not to say I was no longer stressed, worried or anxious about the results. Far from it. But I knew I had done my absolute best and that’s all I could ever ask of myself. I’ve spent most of my educational career sailing through without trying. Always telling myself if I’d have actually put effort in, the results would be much better. So I tried as hard as I could. Anway, I managed to recieve a 2:1 or a Second Class Honors (Upper Division) Degree Classification. In the UK, this is the second highest grade below a 1st (First Class Honors). This was exactly the grade I wanted. I finally achieved something I set my mind on and it felt amazing.
As for the future. I’m still looking for a job and as you can imagine, the search has been made more difficult by the current global situation. I’m on the hunt for work within schools, as a teaching assistant, behaviour mentor or student inclusion services. It’s hard out here, that’s for sure.
Anyway, enough about me! How are you all doing? Any big life changes happening for you? Any tips on beating writers block and lack of motivation? My comments are ready and waiting.
