Phew! July was perhaps the most difficult month for me, with my writing energy dropping to an all-time low. I do apologise for being erratic with my blogging, but this was a huge change for me and I’m trying (somewhat successfully so far) to not feel guilty about it. I desperately need a boost of inspiration to lift me from my gloom and I’m so glad I had the foresight to make The Inspiration Circle a monthly series.
Write what disturbs you, what you fear, what you have not been willing to speak about.
– Natalie Goldberg
There’s a reason self-help books sell like hot cakes – it’s because they’re packed with positivity. The fact remains that every once in a while we need a pick-me-up to meet the challenges of life with renewed fervour. While I’d like to live in that ideal world where I am motivated to write daily all by myself, I realised that’s not going to happen any time soon. The result of that line of thought was The Inspiration Circle, which is aimed at providing that extra boost for writers and general readers of my blog.
