So, my writing friends. I’m sure you’ve been in this situation before, so I will explain my dilemma, and you tell me what works for you. Okay? Over the summer, I fell in love with blogging and found more content than I could possibly get on a blog. My heart was on a high, my creativity flourished, my writing world was filled with wonder. And then…reality hit and I had to go back to school. I became absorbed in that world because that’s what my students deserved. However, any writer/artist knows, that when your world is filled with something else, especially work, the muse becomes elusive….creativity sometimes is dried up.
My New Year’s goal was just get bottom in seat. Because at least when I got my bottom in the seat something would happen. But hmmm…not so good. I feel like one of those capsules my little first graders get that are holding a mystery shrunken creature just waiting for some great water to pour on top and reveal what I am.
You can be my water!
YOUR TURN: When you find yourself stuck, what do you write about? How do you get your creative juices flowing? Do you go to a book and answer random questions? Do you start random challenges?
IF YOU AND I HAD COFFEE, WHAT WOULD YOU TELL ME?
What’s your formula? I’m all ears.
Happy Sunday my friends. Marie
