I wanted to preface this with I love this blog. Since September 2017 this blog has been my lifeblood. I have spent so many hours building something great so that one day if needed, it could run on its own.
I wanted a place that was safe for other mental health bloggers to write. I think I have achieved that here on The Bipolar Writer blog. Recently, I have started to fall out of love writing on my blog. It is not that I don’t want to write, I feel as if I have not much to say anymore as I transition into fictional writing. My mental illness/mental health life is just not interesting to the masses anymore.Become a Patron!
Between my memoir and the blog I always felt as if there is still something to write on my mental health. Now that my memoir will be published which along with this blog has been my life since September 2017. I feel so drained the last week as if I could not write another word about my mental illness life.
It really felt as if I had fell out of love with writing. There is so much going on, and I knew that being a graduate student I would have to write less here (I used to write daily, and I am down to one or two posts every few weeks.) I have sat here on WordPress staring at the blank screen not knowing what to write about in my life. I feel so bad that I am not here talking about the ups and downs of this life because that is always how it has been.
This is shaping out to be the busiest that I have been in a long time. I want to share every triumph like just a week ago going on an actual job interview, something that I have not done in so long. I am always doing freelance writing work, but that is a different thing entirely. It went well but I was so busy after that I was unable to share the good news. I didn’t get the job, but it was because of the schedule along with my school schedule was impossible.
April was a great month. I found someone to come up with a fantastic concept for the logo for my The Bipolar Writer brand. This logo is going to help me launch some fantastic things in 2019.
I am finally going to be publishing my memoir. The blood, sweat, and tears to get it done with the million edits will finally become pay off. I wanted to share all these amazing things and yet when it came to writing a blog about my luck all I got was my blank page (I did talk about my Patreon, which I am oft to do lately, but I felt like couldn’t brag about the amazing things happening in my life.
It has been a tough semester, but that is not an excuse that I feel should be used. I will be working towards writing more informative blog posts from here on out. It might only be weekly, but I can’t walk away from all this. I hope my fellow contributors and followers will understand. Stay strong in the fight.
Always Keep Fighting
