Non Stop

I.
Do.
Not.
Stop.

Sometimes I slow down, and hell, sometimes I completely stall out.

Only for a while though.

Until I’m dead, I do not stop.

    • That’s definitely true too. I have (kind of) dissonant opinions on that – I share yours, resting periods are just part of the process, and a lot of time it’s a good idea to just take a break rather than force it; I also believe in pushing forward though, building momentum. They’re kind of competing ideas, at least at first glance, but I don’t think either one necessarily excludes the other from being in play. If that makes any sense ๐Ÿ™‚ .

  1. Yeah, it makes sense. I remember pushing forward leading to good things for me back when I started my blog. I literally was pushing myself to write a text every day until I reached “50 rambles” on random topics. That worked back then. It might still work if I set myself a goal like that again. But, nowadays I’d rather not push and just wait for a good idea to come in and sort of well, “be the space to be” if you will. Like, I agree it’s nice and encouraging to have a goal, but I also think that there needs to be room for that creativity to come in instead of just being focused all the time…

    • Haha, exactly. I kind of bounce back and forth between which outlook I favor in how I’m going at it at any given time (it kind of hinges on how burnt out I’m getting, more often than not). Sometimes the emphasis is on not forcing it, and sometimes it’s on pushing forward, but whichever it happens to be, it’s also coupled with a few other things. One of the biggest being my belief that if you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong. Either I’m enjoying myself or there’s no point.

  2. I do not stop either. Sometimes I wonder if I’m going to pour it all out and eventually have nothing left. So far there’s no sign of it, though. If anything my ideas are changing, evolving and veering into stranger, more interesting territory.

    • The funny thing is, while I do get burnt out sometimes, even feel “empty”… the more I do, the more I’m capable of doing as I go forward. Like if I tap myself out from churning out 7 posts in 2 days and I’ve got nothing left for the next little while. Sooner or later something else pops into my head, and the thing that’s changed is… I’m more able to get it out of my head. To get more of it out, and to get it out more clearly than what I might have been able to do before, with less practice.

      I try not to pay too much attention to the evolution of it all though, the evolution of me I guess, but that’s just because it distracts me a lot of the time. I get caught up in the trjectory and kind of lose track of where I am (or was) at. Then I’m left treading water for a bit and trying to get my bearings haha.

      It’s definitely something that makes the ride more interesting as I go though. As long as I don’t indulge in my habit of over analyzing things too much for my own good.

      That’s not really related (directly) to what you were talking about I guess, or is (at the least) a little bit of a tangent on my part, but I was writing a post that’s loosely related to that (I’ve been thinking about it a lot this morning) and your comment seems to have ended up being the catalyst for another surge in my free flow of thought on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ack, hit send before I was finished. I was going to add that pushing ahead, has led from many ideas that I thought were going one way that led completely in other. Of course, everyone is different and has there own methods…

      • Precisely! And that’s kind of what I meant about evolving. I’m not consciously doing it. But after the fact, I look at it and realize how much has changed. I started out making everything into a bit of a love story. Lately, I’ve been killing everyone off left and right! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Ok, well that’s a little exaggerated….
