Sighs of a Discouraged Writer

I am discouraged.

There, I said it. I am discouraged. Lets be real. Writing is not for the feint of heart, and even if my heart is feinter than most my mere stubbornness and sense of calling practically forbids me to stop. There are somedays where I absolutely love writing, I find it refreshing for both the mind and the soul. But there are other days where I just want to throw in the towel, throw my hands up, and say I’m done.

Sometimes I look at an hour or two of work… and just sigh.

Maybe you’re a writer and you feel the same way. If you are not but still work and dream of doing something creative, there is a good chance you are often disappointed by your own work. I suppose it is a flaw of our broken world. God created us to get pleasure from our work, and yet often it leaves us drained. And I can say, one month after writing my initial draft of this article, the drain only gets harder when you have a full time job. Writing has been sparse over the past few months for me, both time and disappointment can really hold you back.

Today I would like to share with you three reasons I typically get disappointed. Maybe you can relate.

Upcoming Projects, Web Updates

This is going to be a super short blog post! But, I am excited to announce that the Story Bunk now has a new logo! Feel free to check it out below (or above since it should now appear at the top of every page)! Special thanks goes to my friend Kayla for getting this put together!

I’m excited this summer to be able to work on some stories I’ve really been itching to tell. One story in particular, I am super excited about. You won’t hear about that one any time soon though but I’ve been able to make some good progress on it already! Just a little update on what I am doing.

Also, I’ve got one finished story that I’m hoping to publish by the end of the summer! If you read my previous blog post you can get a quick preview of it… expect a title announcement very soon!
