Blogging torpor?

I try to blog every day, as you can probably tell. I rarely miss a day of blogging. It is an objective I set myself a long time ago, when I started this blog back in 2008 when I was unemployed: I would keep it active every day. Its officious motto is "Nulla dies sine linea" (No day without a line).This is a line attributed to Apelles, which I had already mentioned in 2011. I do this because blogging for me is a creative exercise and I want my brain to remain creative. That said, recently, it has become more difficult to stay inspired. It is not time I lack, although I have little of it being a father. It is energy and inspiration. I am fatigued and so is Vraie Fiction. So I am wondering if I should not go slower and take breaks a day or two. Although for some reason I find this option depressing.

I have found that blogging breaks are good for the soul. Everyone needs a rest now and again!

Totally agree! I've felt exactly the same way about my blog many, many times. So I stop and do other things. Inevitably tho, I come back to it as I find things I actually want to blog about.

Don't put so much pressure on yourself. Life is fluid and all about change.
