Too Depressed to Write (Behind the Scenes)

“Lately, when I am not thinking about writing a new story about my life, a new fictional story, an inspiration quote, a peom or completing a WordPress daily challenge.
I am am doing this”


After a days long nap on a typical day, exhausting all my daily routines and draining the batteries on my phone, I zone out into a space in my head, where I wonder what has become of my life, why I am so broke, why I do not have a job yet, if I should be investing so much time on my blog/wordpress and why it is so difficult to make money outside getting a white collar job in Nigeria, “also, I wonder why my laptop had to spoil in this crucial moment and how I miss playing fifa 14”.

[Alittle sneak peak into the zoned out space in my head]

It starts by me realising that I now see the world from a different angle, that

The future I used envision for myself all seems like a mirage now, and how

Nothing except to make money interests me.

I then continue by thinking about my long range of wants and needs, and how they all seem to only answer to money, also

I think about how I no longer get excited to write anymore, “no motivation”, and I don’t mean in terms of likes and comments, you guys do a wonderful job at that and I appreciate it.

I also think about how my favourite songs now bore me, and how everyone I know kind of seems distant, “no money, no love I guess”

When I give into the pressure, I say to myself; I can no longer continue to pretend like everything ok “suffering and smiling doesn’t suite me”

I then wonder, if I have lost my game and identify,

Life has really taken a toll on me I ponder.

Help me! Help me!! Help me!!! I scream


“I haven’t been feeling up to write about anything of late as I have been too depressed to write”

  3. Hey, dont give up. There will be another day.
    Look at us here, in the middle of Europe. Not even 3000 citizens, and each year, without any sense, several million euros of EU funding are thrown out of the window.
    They dont want immigration, although the place, even the entire region slowly dies out.
    In the place you can earn money in the with nothing, unless you work almost as a slave in a factory on a machine. Culture is called “Blasmusik” and “Volkstanz”, and with the citizens of the Czech Republic, which is only five kilometers away, it is not allowed to cooperate for political reasons – some people driven out after the WW2, the descendants of them want tot get back land lost as a war reparation.

    Do you feel better now? 😉
    You are in an emerging country, and here is the downfall. Wait a maximum of 10 years, then everything is good.
    Have a great weekend ahead. 😉 Michael

    And if you want to see where we are living, look at There is a lot of own produced information. LOL

  6. It’s not easy to make money as an artist! It takes a lot of commitment – and some luck. Also you need to focus on what you really want. If money is the most important thing, you need to find a commercially viable theme. If artistic integrity is crucial for you, there’s no guarantee that you’ll make money. Some artists need to work at another job until they get up and running. Possibly you could turn off the telephone and give up the computer games. Hope that doesn’t sound too unsympathetic – but sympathy doesn’t translate into money either 😉
