Ready for Something More

And it has nothing to do with writing.

I’ve been open about my writing journey on this platform. Sharing an occasional story here and there about writer’s block and wanting to quit.

I’ve canceled my membership a time or two and even deactivated my account at one point.

But I’d find it in me to continue because I have made so many amazing connections. Writers I look forward to reading on the daily.

Yet the feeling won’t go away. The feeling of wanting something more. And deep down I know writing is not it. It’s fun. It’s an outlet. But I lost the spark.

It’s time to spice things up. Time for something new.

Why I’m writing this, I don’t even know. I thought about taking another hiatus (like the one I took in October but this time much longer). Maybe that hiatus was not long enough.

But I know when I see writers disappear, it makes me wonder why. What happened? Where’d they go? Are they ok?

The irony to write about not wanting to write. I don’t understand it but I do know there’s something I’m feeling, something I can’t explain for once.

So what’s the point?

The point is, I wouldn’t stop writing without a formal goodbye.

Here she goes again. I know, right?

But I can’t ignore this gut feeling that tells me to venture a new way.

And when I go that way and I find what it is I’m looking for, I hope to return here and write all about it.

Edit: Update here

A conversation changed my mind. I am here to stay.
