Old Blog 24/10/17: Ignoring Inspiration


Writing consistently isn’t the hardest thing to do, it is trying to motivate yourself to do it that is the hardest part.

I am currently writing my speech for my Grandad’s funeral that is harder than I thought it would be, mainly as I don’t have the emotional competence to start the blasted thing. I did write a eulogy of sorts for this blog but that was very much written to help me acknowledge his passing in my own mind, something that you don’t want to keep revisiting.
