What to do? 

You may have noticed, or not, that I have been quiet for a while on here.

Well the truth is I feel like I have nothing left. 

I haven’t got anything to write, my inspiration is gone and I can’t find it anymore. 

So I’m thinking about giving up completely. 

I lost my original inspiration a long time ago and it’s not coming back. 


Not sure many people would bother but I have got nothing left at all. 

So yeah, that’s all I’ve got to say just now.

Hey there, thanks for dropping by. My name is Colin, sometimes I go by the name Scottish Legend. I am 34, married with a beautiful baby girl who is the light of my life. When I grow up I want to be a writer. I have written my first novel and want to try and get it published. One day I'll get there. In the meantime I am spending as much time with my daughter as I can. I've been a stay at home dad for the last year and I have loved every minute of it. I post stories, poetry and rants on here and sometimes heartfelt pieces that I just have to get out. Please feel free to contact me via the contact page and I hope you enjoy my work and life. I look forward to hearing from you If you feel like supporting me by buying a coffee would be appreciated http://ko-fi.com/scottishlegend

      1. Well what you’ve written here has been great. I mean, at least I liked it. Don’t give up! We all go through dry spells but you still have to write. Write something, anything. Gaze into your little girl’s eyes and write what you see. What do you dream for her? What do you Long for for yourself? What’s got you down? What’s missing? What’s extraordinary? Go ahead. Write rubbish. Just keep writing, my friend. The world is a better place because you do and will be lesser if you don’t.


      2. I will quote someone I know:
        “…you beat the monster inside you once, and you are still standing.”
        Seems if she can say that to him, I can say that to you. Don’t let the monster of doubt take over. I know life is hard but we are a community and we all have each other. Stand up, stand strong, square your shoulders and keep writing. 😊

  1. I just accept when the wind doesn’t blow my boat doesn’t move. I might even get out for a quick swim, but I never leave the boat in case the wind picks up again … (I sailed when I was younger, and yes, you do need to stay close to the boat …)
