Creative Urge

24 Aug

I’ve been sucking with my writing lately.

Generally, the only writing I’ve been doing is handwriting little one-shots in a notebook for a bit before going to bed. It’s a nice way to wind day after a day of staring at a computer monitor and numbers and math and taxes at work. Sometimes, though, I find myself staring at my phone — which I use to play some music for writing — while blank pages from the notebook stare back up at me.

I’ve been feeling a bit mentally drained lately, probably due to the changes at work. A coworker left to pursue another opportunity, and I was the closest one to his position. I got the promotion, which is great, but it obviously came with a bit more work, most of which is familiar. The extra work is no problem, especially since it tends to fill up my work day and keep me busy. When I get home, though, I tend to just veg.

I have the urge to create, though. This job does not fulfill that urge and I want to get back more into drawing along with writing. Losing myself in the art and stories of video games, to connect with others about those, is another passion of mine that I want to pursue.

It’s funny. Often enough, I hear coworkers speak about what they are doing after work, especially on our late day. Considering I like sleep, I tend to go home and get into pjs before going to bed at a reasonable hour. It’s a wonder if I stay in my work clothes for a while after getting home from the day job if I’ll keep that work mentality…

Then again, I tend to work while on my bed, so that may not work at all, haha!

Once I get more used to the workload of my position, I should be able to focus more on my creative pursuits. Anyone got any tips for doing that?

    Congrats on the promotion! I also just started a new job, and I just moved recently, so I also have been feeling pretty drained and not writing. If you’re feeling like you are tired but need to do something, start outlining drafts, baby steps – then when you actually want to turn that outline into a blog it won’t seem as daunting since you have already started!
