and by write, I mean something of significance.
Too many days and weeks have drifted by with nary a whisper of inspiration to stir my heart to write. It's a little scary and frustrating and depressing.
At our last writers group gathering we decided to create a homework assignment where for every day we don't write, we'll at least list the reason why.
too often my excuse is this...
but really it's more like... I can't think of anything to write, or I don't feel like writing so I might as well diddle the day away by scrolling thru' facebook.
I guess it's been coming on for some time now. Feeling like I don't have anything creative left to blog about or write a short story about. I've got lots of stories written that could certainly use editing but I just don't feel the unction to do that either.
At that last meeting, we each shared what helps us get moving again when we've gotten stuck. For me its taking a trip. Something about a road trip or a camping adventure always seems to help kick it back in gear.
I've got a backpacking adventure coming up 4th of July weekend. Here's hoping the muse will be here when I get back.
