The struggle with writing is over

Thursday, April 25, 2013

The struggle with writing is over.”

Those are the words written on a post-it by Philip Roth’s computer screen. In an interview, Roth said that looking at the note every day gives him strength.  It made me wonder how it would feel like if I, too, would stop articulating my thoughts.  And so I did: I stopped writing.  For the past several weeks, I restrained myself from updating my blog. 

Knowing that I don’t have to struggle with writing anymore brought me such relief, but choosing not to struggle was a struggle in itself.  Suppressed and stultified, the need to write always threatened to overwhelm me, and now it finally did.

It always does in the end :) It's nice that you're back though.
