My last blog post was all about how little time I had to do creative work. Now, suddenly, I have so much time. For obvious reasons.
I’m not going to complain. I’m in a very good situation compared to most people. I do still have a bit of income and I should be able to last for a little while on savings if I really have to. I know some people are in terrible circumstances. I feel a bit weird writing this at all, actually. I think there are other people we should be listening to right now. But this is a blog about my work, so I’m going to write about how this is impacting it.
So, as I was saying, I suddenly have more time to do creative things. But, probably like a lot of people, I’m not feeling very creative right now. And I’m trying to make my peace with that. To look after myself rather than be focused on all the music I ‘should’ be writing. I’m still keeping busy, but the ideas that usually flow through my mind vying for attention and time have gone silent. My hope is that they’ll come back soon. Either way, I’ll keep updating what I’m doing.
If you’re in a similar situation, where you’re not feeling up to doing the things you’ve always wished you had the time for, and you’re getting frustrated with yourself for not doing it, you’re not alone. You’ve got this.
I hope you’re all staying safe and well x
