Writing about nothing

You know what they say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, or in this case, when you can’t think of what to write about, you write about not being able to come up with anything to write about.

When starting this 100-day blog challenge I more or less knew exactly what I was getting myself into and that this was going to happen at some point down the line, though I thought it would be longer than 16 days before it did.

Sadly and for reasons beyond me I didn’t think to take into account that life right now is boring. I don’t mean that in any way along the lines of my relationship, my career or mental state but its more so about the lockdown that we are all in these days due to the COVID-19 virus.

I am sure I am not alone on the feeling of being bored as each day is more or less exactly the same, there are no fun vacations, not concerts, or talking about playing a game of darts at the bar the night before.

Because of all of that, it is a struggle to think about what to write about without simply putting a one-liner saying “Hi welcome to my blog, this is day 87 of the 100-day blog challenge. I saw a bird fly across my yard.”.

I am sure this writer’s block will soon pass as restrictions are lifted and I am able to subtly change up my daily routine.
