THE WRITERS BLOCK RAMBLES

 

I’m going to apologise in advance in case this is the most horrible blog post you’ve ever read but I needed to get something out. Here I am sitting in my office sweating my imaginary balls off and I can’t tell whether it’s because I am really hot or whether it is because I have writers block.

 

When I started blogging I always knew I wanted my writing to be a focal point of this space (because my high school teacher told me I was good at english was enough of a reason for me to be confident enough to start blogging) and unfortunately the past 6 months have seen me get a little bit lost. Of course I still want to have the short, snappy ‘here-is-10-fucking-cute-dresses-you-might-like’ and tips on how to wear off the shoulder things but I also want to share more. You know? 

 

I want to get lost in words the way I used too.

 

It’s been a long time coming but I finally feel like I’m comfortable in cutting back content if it means producing some really epic articles. The ones that make me (and you guys) fist pump and think fuck yeah girl! And not because I found a cute red dress for under $40 but because that blog post made you feel something. Soooooo deep. 

 

What I’m trying to say – things are going to kinda change around here. I’m not going all Britney and shaving my head but you’ll probably notice more beefy articles hitting the site so maybe only log on after The Bachelor finishes for the night.

 

I also wanted to address the lack of beauty content because I get messages about you guys wanting more. The reason I’m less inclined to writing beauty articles at the moment is purely because I’m struggling to reduce my collection down to cruelty-free and vegan only products. I just don’t want to be promoting products that aren’t either of those things. Once I find my feet I’ll be back smashing through lipstick swatches and foundation reviews again!

 

Now I’m off to really brainstorm some ideas for future posts because now I’m all inspired and feeling fuzzy about the future so byezzzzzz.

How the heck do you get out of the deep and dark writers block hole?

    I feel you & feel for you Sarah! I’ve gone through so many stages of writer’s block since blogging it ain’t funny. Last month I barely punched out any posts because I was struggling with words so damn much & despite having a lot of drafts, I just didn’t feel like continuing with any of them. I too want my blog’s focus to be writing as I’ve been told that I ought to be a writer in the past (and also because my photography isn’t the best), but it can be hard when you just don’t wanna write.

    I always try & take it easy on myself in those moments because I
    know that trying to force myself to write does me no favours, but I also
    know that eventually I regain my spark & get back on the writing
    train. Sometimes it can be through something I’ve read on another blog,
    or a news article, or sometimes my brain comes up with a new post idea
    that I have to scramble to write down or type out. I’m not sure if any of these things will work for you, but I know that they’ve worked for me.

      I always regret those moments you don’t scramble and jot down what you’re thinking of writing. I’m trying to be better at that because I feel as though it’s something that really helps keep ideas and juices flowing.

      I can’t wait to see where your blog goes Shell! It’s exciting and you will find that spark again – we all eventually do :)

    This post doesn’t come across like you have writers block! It’s very well written!
    I don’t have any advice for you, I have permanent writers block and all my blog posts are shit but I like doing it so I just do it. Maybe one day I will find my place in blogging :P

    Glad to hear you’re feeling inspired with your blog! I’m sure you can tell from the type of posts I put up, but I’m definitely about the long-form posts even if they go up less frequently, just because that’s how I’ve always liked to blog and that’s what suits me best. I think the key with blogging is to just post about what you love and try to create content that you’d like to see and would enjoy reading, because sometimes one really good post is worth 5 average posts where the blogger didn’t have much to say. Everyone has different styles though, it’s just a matter of finding a balance that makes you happy and that keeps you excited about blogging. :)

      So true. I enjoy snappy things when it comes to fashion and I don’t think that side will change but I do want to incorporate more longer lifestyle posts that tell a story kinda thing

    Great post Sarah! I actually am in a very similar mindset and am wanting to include more organisation posts, posts about juggling study/work/blogging, and cruelty-free products. I can’t wait to see your beefy articles! You’re an amazing writer and i’m sure I’ll love anything you publish xx
