The end of a streak

WordPress has been congratulating me for more than a month for being ‘on a streak’, as it calls it, which means that I’ve posted at least once every day during that time.

All good things must come to an end, though: and, unfortunately, for the moment I’ve run out of things to say. My muse has once again left me. Although there are numerous folks out there in the blogosphere suggesting prompts and challenges to get the creative juices flowing, nothing of late has sparked anything for me.

Rather than fight this, I’m going to take a break for a bit.

    Best blogging streak I ever had was 200 consecutive days. The resulting silence was almost as long. Every streak has to end but don’t do a ‘me’ – come back soon!

    Taking a break at those times is the best thing you can do for yourself and your muse.

  3. Mine got to 99 the other day, so I had to break for a day. I kinda want to get back to a pre-lockdown level but I’ve enjoyed taking part in some new prompts.

    I completely understand the feeling, pendantry! I took a longer break than planned (about a year and a half!), and then got on a small streak, and now am stuck again! Writing comes when it is meant to, I guess. :-) Congratulations on your streak, and enjoy your break!

    Sometimes you just have to step away, either to wait for your muse to return or to maintain your sanity. Take that break and refresh yourself.
