Musings Episode 66: Introspection…

So apparently, this is my 200th post.

WOO.

Life has been very interesting, over the past month or so. In going through a bit of writer’s burnout, though it has disrupted my work flow, it’s also given me time to really just sit back and think on a few things. Think on nothing, but think on everything. That sort of grey area where you have everything and nothing figured out at the same time.

At the moment, I’m more of the latter than the former.

At the moment, I’m more wrapped up in avoiding stress as much as possible and finding everything and anything that’s constructive to keep me in a good mood.

Sometimes it’s a bit of a task – but really, times like these are moments when you can actually grade yourself on how well you cope with life.

Eventually, you just get to a point where you’re fucking tired.

Tired of stressing out, tired of focusing on the negative, tired of concerning yourself with solutions…tired of worrying, tired of having highs and lows – just, tired.

I’ve been told before by many I have a way with words – something I pride myself in.

I enjoy helping people find solutions and apparently judging by past experience aren’t too shabby at giving someone a pep talk to make them feel better.

….but what happens when the motivator needs motivation?

What happens when the person who talks everyone else up needs a pep talk themselves?

I’m slowly starting to acknowledge not all the time do I actually take the time to stop and sort my own wandering thoughts out, and understand that can be an unhealthy habit – probably why the writer’s burnout happened in the first place.

It’s been a while since I’ve properly just stopped everything and checked under my own mind’s hood to make sure the engine’s still in check – hence now, neglect has that “check engine” light flashing.

But once it’s all sorted out, everything will be running like new again – a person can go through these moments and think it’s the end of the world, when in fact it really is just a moment that’ll soon pass.

Kind of reminds me of the adage “this too shall pass.”

After a while you realize it – whatever’s going on – a mental block, a situation, an argument, even your own insecurities or thoughts running wild – it all comes to an end.

Eventually, you just get so tired of dwelling you really don’t give a fuck anymore.

Eventually, instead of doing what so many others are expected to do under stress, sometimes the best thing is to just laugh or chuck it in the fuck it bucket and move on.

Why?

Because at that moment, it’s the only thing that makes sense to do.

Be kind to yourself by being kind to your body and your mind – don’t stress. You’ll only make yourself sick – take some time out to really get to know you, and eventually nothing else will matter.

You’ll find yourself not worrying about outcomes or reactions, others opinions or even next week – you’ll learn to filter.

Keep focusing on sorting your own self out, focusing on what you want, and nothing else. Sort yourself out first, and you can help sort out others after.

Take a little time to listen to who matters most – you.

One more thing – I know I’ve been slack on the For The Weekenders posts – bear with me – there’s a pretty awesome one coming your way this Thursday. Promise.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 64: Writer’s Burnout…

First off – hope everyone had an absolutely epic weekend.

Second of all – I know it’s been a minute since you’ve all seen me on here.

To be honest, I encountered a pretty bad case of writer’s burnout…there’s really no excuse for it – all that can be said is I’ve finally made it back onto the old writing chair and hopefully won’t be falling off it again. So hopefully this post will be just as refreshing for you as it has been for me…

But wait – then this got me curious – who else has gotten writer’s burnout? Or even the more commonly known writer’s block? How have you dealt with it? How long did it last?

Keep in mind, writer’s burnout is completely different from writer’s block. I’ll be going further into detail about it tomorrow on Make it Mondays – but for now there is a really great, brief post I came across from Stella Tarakson that sums it up quite easily (also, thanks to Drew Coffman for the awesome photo).

I know this sounds rather cliché, the whole conflicted writer bit, but it does have some validity to it. Writing is all about energy and a clear head.

When a person doesn’t have energy, not a single word can be plucked from their brain…

…and when a person has too much going on in their mind and can’t focus – filtering a simple paragraph out of all the “noise” can be like trying to direct traffic with no street lights in L.A.

Whenever I write, my surroundings have got to be serene, even if I’m writing about some pretty exciting stuff. For more active environments, I’d much rather make a vlog post of it or a simple spitball audio session.

There’s a sort of structure, even to the most casual writing, you know? You may not try and label it – heck, I know I don’t like to label it – but there is something about writing that in order to do it, in order to get your thoughts on paper, each and every writer has to have their own way or “style” of doing just that.

Writing for me comes down to getting as close to how I would usually talk in person – aka write like you talk. I think it’s the best form of writing as you can really connect with your reader, when all the formalities have been stripped down.

my aim is to put down on paper what i see ernest hemingway quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Rego's Life Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout Rego's Life, Rego's Life, writer's burnout, writer's block, writers block, overcoming writer's block

It’s like it breaks out of the typical mold most writing schools say you must adhere to – and for a moment, even if it’s a short one, you’re vulnerable…your words are vulnerable. Naked. Raw. Unfiltered.

You can talk about whatever it is you can think about, and say yay or nay as to whether or not you want to write about what everyone else is talking about.

Complete control over your own train of thought.

That’s what I love about writing. That’s why I do it. It allows you to educate, excite, inform, project, debate, and ponder over so much more than if you were to have a typical conversation with someone…because the thing with conversation is, usually it entails one party talking while the other is just waiting to speak as well.

Rarely is it that one actually listens in conversation…but when you listen, that’s when you connect with that person.

I write, because while I’m the observer in many sit-down social settings, it (writing) gives me the opportunity to pour my every thought out, uninterrupted.

there is nothing to writing all you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed, ernest hemingway quotes, rego's life quotes, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Rego's Life Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout, Musings Episode 64 Writer's Burnout Rego's Life, Rego's Life, writer's burnout, writer's block, writers block, overcoming writer's block

…and it’s one of the most freeing things next to working out for me.

So now that I’m feeling back up to snuff to “bleed on paper” again, Rego’s Life will be back on schedule once more…and don’t forget to look out for tomorrow’s Make it Mondays, where you’ll see some pretty great tips as to how I personally deal with writer’s burnout and a great way you can, too. Until then…

As always…

Stay awesome.
