Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this:
“You mean well, but you you make this hard on me…”
Okay, so… Those of you who follow my blog may know that I’m a writer because I’ve talked about it a few times. Occasionally, I enjoy writing little stories to go with the photos I post here and to Flickr. Most of the time, though, the sorts of things that I write are considerably longer pieces. Sometimes, I find myself with a bit of a block, and the most random thing will inspire something new, or will give me the kick in the rear that I need to finally finish that novel that’s been on the back-burner for two years.
As strange as it sounds, this photo is one of those things. As simplistic as my surroundings may seem, I couldn’t bring myself to care about moving out of that chair because of that lovely little typewriter sitting on the desk. I saw it and decided almost instantly that it would be included in the photo somehow, and that’s how this photo was born. I think it speaks to me because that ^ is how I feel sometimes when I find myself unable to write the things I want to write.
Blocked. Lost. Completely out-of-sorts.
Sometimes you get to a point where you feel that way about a lot of things. Lately, for example, I’ve also been looking for a little bit more inspiration for my photos. See, I didn’t start my photography journey as a blogger, but sometimes, you can find yourself in a rut no matter how much you enjoy something. And those are not fun.
I found something today that really helped me to rid myself of that feeling, and had an in-depth discussion with a friend that was… well… needed for quite a while. Things are looking up, and that’s always good, right?
