I’m suffering from the dreaded “bard’s block.” It’s not even my brain’s/muse’s fault. It’s mine.
I write as a day job and a night job (and weekend, holidays and any other time job), which makes creative writing, well… seem like work. Not that I don’t like my work, but after exercising my brain meat all day/night, when I’m done, all I want to do is stare at a screen and not think.
That mindset is not conducive to creative writing. But, I’m currently motivated to make a change. After dinner tonight, I’m taking my fanciest, most poem-inspiring notebook into the TV room with me and I’m going to jot down whatever comes out while I’m relaxing.
Maybe I’ll get a poem or short story out of it, maybe I won’t. The point is, I’ll be trying. And that’s good enough for me right now.
