I have found writing is a gateway to the soul for some. I have met a few writers on my trek through life, and you know what I have noticed in person.
They have that extra deep and wonderful twinkle in their eye.
How I notice these things (and meant to share to give you an understanding), is that when I look at a person (preferably a feminine spirited one) I noticed a few things and two of those are eyes and hair.
I find the eyes such a gorgeous thing.
So …. when you feel the burn out and the weariness run deep into your soul, it is because you are observing such horrors and atrocities that it make you have to go numb to process it .
I don’t mean to project, but that is what I believe/feel based upon my observations.
I hope you are in a good place again to write and write deeply as you desire, for some of us really do enjoy it ……
