“I went through a period once when I felt like I was dying. I wasn’t writing any poetry, and I felt that if I couldn’t write I would split. I was recording in my journal, but no poems came. I know now that this period was a transition in my life. The next year, I went back to my journal, and here were these incredible poems I could almost lift out of it… These poems came right out of the journal. But I didn’t see them as poems then.” –Audre Lorde
We all have those times when the writing doesn’t seem to be coming. We feel that the muse has abandoned us. But perhaps, we are blind to our own talent.
