Have you ever sat down to your computer or your binder paper and suddenly you have nothing to write. In fact, this goes on for several days. Nothing is coming to you. This is what we writers hate to have happen: Writer’s Block. Or the famine.
For whatever reason, all of our ideas have dried up like a lake that goes through a severe drought and dries all up. We want to write. We’ve scheduled our time out and yet here we sit.
This has happened with my daughter’s dedication website for me. If you were take a look at the left hand side of the site where it show all the posts first broken down by year and then month, in the beginning you would see where my grief journey was. I was able to tell people about my journey as I went through it. Something you would then start to notice was as time went by my posts would started to get further apart between postings. When I stopped to think about it, at the time I didn’t want to bore people with the same things over and over again. I had to feel lead to write something and when I did I sat down, plucked away on my computer keyboard, and posted what I wrote.
You can always tell when I was approaching two of the most important dates in my life and how they have forever changed me: her birthday (December) and the day she went to be with Jesus (July). I have no doubt that as her 6 year mark gets closer it will once again get hard for me. But that’s okay. That’s what her site is all about. It’s about my grief journey but it also has turned into something that I still dedicate to my daughter and that is my writing.
