Emma chose the word this week, and I hope that participating will get me back into blogging. I hadn’t realised that it had been so long – but things have got on top of me lately and the blogosphere has taken a back seat. No posts from me in a few weeks, and over a thousand items in my blog reader.
It’s strange that this word should come up this week – I feel like I have a lot of pent-up emotion to deal with, which is possibly why the blog has been neglected. I’ve not been great lately – tired and unproductive, which has made me frustrated and stressed, which hasn’t helped with the tiredness, which hasn’t helped with the productivity, which hasn’t helped with the frustration and stress which… well, you can see how this is going.
So yes, I need catharsis. My last post was about writers’ block, and it seems that this has spread to a more general emotional block. I don’t know what catharsis I need as I don’t know what I want to do. I’m not feeling shouty or tearful or anything. Just a bit weary. Decluttering is often cathartic but I don’t know how to declutter my psyche.
Pop over to see Emma and check out the other weekworders – I’ll be heading over to get some ideas, and with any luck normal service will soon be resumed.
