Well, it’s been almost one month, a big four weeks more or less, since I’ve posted anything.
Yes, we were on vacation for the first two of those weeks and unfortunately, I’ve been back at work for the last two weeks.
To be honest here, the thought of creating any type of content(of any description) literally would ramp up my already throbbing anxiety new and really exciting levels of distress.
So, no new posts in a month or so.
And the reality is, I’m not sure of there will be anything of creative writing substance coming from yours truly in the near future.
I really do feel burned out in the blogging realm.
Not so much in the writing world of things, but exceedingly scorched as it relates to the blogging universe.
As I look back, I’ve created over 900 blog posts(and yes, some of them are updates and re-posts), but nevertheless those 900 have in many respects drained the tank.
I will admit that this feeling of burnout isn’t entirely due to simply blogging and writing. Much of it I suspect falls of of where I’m at in my life at this moment.
Which in many ways feels like burnout…….which it probably is.
So, what happens next?
I don’t have an answer for that, other than to say we’ll see what happens as time marches on.
I have decided at this point to point “Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt” on an extended “leave of absence” so to speak.
I really do appreciate and have a heart full of thanks to the many, many of you who participated perhaps just once or often on a weekly basis or somewhere in between in making “Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt” a wonderful exercise in creativity(on your part) for over a year.
I don’t think I’m at the point yet of completely abandoning my blog and blogging altogether.
I am really proud of what I’ve accomplished in the wonderful and often frustrating world of writing and especially in terms of “justabitfurther” as an entity within the blogosphere.
Writing, blogging and creating poetry has forced me to look very deep within myself and often having to come to grips with what is/was hidden within the crevices of my soul.
This isn’t goodbye post or anything close to that(at least I don’t think it is).
What I think it ultimately is or will be……is simply part of the evolution of “justabitfurther” as a blog “organism.”
Life moves on and changes are part of that process we call living. This is part of it.
So, not goodbye….but how about I’ll catch up and talk to you all later.
