Summer in the Sunshine State doesn’t mean what we think it means. There’s sun, true. But lately the afternoons have been a little more humid, gray, and rainy. Currently, I’m sitting in a comfy chair at Starbucks, sipping on a now lukewarm vanilla blonde roast, and watching the sun tentatively peek its way out of the clouds and dry off the parking lot I had to wade through just an hour or two ago.
“If it’s true that inside of me lives the Holy Spirit of the Living God, and God is the source of all beautiful, true, and life-giving things in the world, and if I am called to make things in his name and for his glory, then that is an infinite well of inspiration… we don’t ever have to be afraid of running out of different ways to say something beautiful.” (plug. I’m still geeked I got to do this interview.)
I think in making it official, I don’t feel so guilty about not writing anything here. And hopefully, I’ll come back to the blog with a new perspective and enthusiasm.
A few things before I go…
- This doesn’t mean I’m done writing publicly. On the contrary, I’d love to get back into writing for other places! If you need a guest post for your blog or know some place I should consider submitting, let’s talk. jenwritesstuff at gmail dot com
- During the downtime, I do have a project brewing that I’m excited about… a few weeks ago, I compiled a draft of thirty something poems. Hopefully, when I reopen this blog I’ll have something more to say about that. :)
- Here’s an excellent article on The Creative Doldrums that explains this weird dry spell nicely. And I’m not just biased because my boyfriend wrote it. Well, maybe a tiny bit biased, but… read it, okay?
- On a personal note… this is the last month of my 20s! Shoot, that’s probably some good blog material right there….
