My enthusiasm for writing comes and goes in cycles. Usually it depends on how tired I'm feeling, and after a full days work and then finally getting the little one to bed, all I want to do is chill out. This mostly involves trying to read and then falling asleep without realising it.
At these times I just don't have the energy, either physical or mental, to sit down to do any writing.
This will continue for a few days and before I know it a week has gone buy and I'm annoyed with myself for wasting yet another week of potential writing time.
I'm learning that writing can be a fairly solitary endeavour, and this in itself can contribute to enthusiasm putting his coat on and leaving for a while. I've really felt the benefit this week of having so many excellent blogs to discover, to find that I'm not the only one having these thoughts and feelings. There's a whole new community waiting to help me entice the enthusiasm back, and help drive me forward with all the ideas I have floating in my head.
I only hope that some of my blogs may help others keep going as much as they help me.
