The Writing Struggle Bus

Dictionary.com defines the term “struggle bus” as:

noun, slang.

1. a situation, task, etc., that seems difficult or frustrating:
With no sleep last night, I’ll be on the struggle bus today.

Recently, I’ve been riding the writing struggle bus because I’m making an iPhone photography course and it isn’t going well. I’m not happy with the content, and my inner perfectionist isn’t helping the situation.

I’m also tired of being on the struggle bus, so I decided to write the class and worry about the details (like formatting, course delivery, etc.) at a later date. I also started using Scrivener again because the program helps me organize my writing with less effort. It’s a visual person’s dream!

Hopefully, I’ll be able to write the course with ease and spend less time on the writing struggle bus.

    I’m in exactly the same place, Tammy with my loving-kindness course. It’s not the writing, that comes relatively easy to me. It’s recording the audio meditations and getting them in the correct format, and dealing with other technical details. Ugh! I’m glad you found a way forward. We will get our courses together. And, I’m excited about yours!

      Thanks Sandra! I hope you find a way forward, too! Being on the struggle bus is a challenge. Also, your course sounds amazing! xoxo.
