Fighting the Battle


I know that I have disappeared off the radar this week. Life has been challenging me to say the least. Things overall are good and I really don’t have anything worthy of complaining about, but I am just feeling a little deflated and like something isn’t fitting in my universe.

I am certain that things will come together as they always do. Thanks for your patience while I figure things out. I am not sure what changes will come my way, but I promise it will be an adventure just as it always is!

  1. Oh Matt! I just stopped by to check out your blog a bit more — I hope I didn’t cause any of this feeling! I don’t know how long you’ve been feeling this way about your writing, but it is cyclical. Definitely. Take some time off, but don’t disappear.


    • Feelings are due to circumstances and events that have happened over the past week. Certainly not anything to do with our conversation. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by 🙂


  2. Well, I hope you are okay. I read a bunch of your pieces, and I can see you have just started blogging in March. You really are new here. I can make a suggestion, if I may be so bold.

    It can be a bummer to write and have few people visit. But there are several wonderful communities for writers which can increase traffic to your place. One is called Yeah Write. They have a weekly writing challenge. You put your post on a grid and people come to visit you. It’s a great way to meet other bloggers that you like. A second, much bigger community, is the WANA community. WANA stands for We Are Not Alone, and it is the brainchild of @KristenLambTX – or Kristen Lamb. Her blog is If you hook into the #MyWANA hashtag and plug into some of those people by visiting their blogs, you will find that people will start to visit you. Kristen and her cohorts offer writing classes and lots of advice for bloggers and aspiring novelists. You don’t have to take these courses or anything. I just thought that you might want to scan her blog so you understand the “WANA Revolution.” It really helped to build my readership.

    When you come out of this funk, consider plugging in to #myWANA or Yeah Write. Writing is a lonely business. We need other writers to communicate with! Good luck, Matt!
