Have you ever had days when you just didn’t feel like writing?
I have lists of ideas for blog posts, and half finished drafts, as well.
Having blogged for over a year, there have been many times when I look at my list of ideas for blog posts.
I stare at them, but nothing inspires me.
Sometimes I reread the words, and they don’t even make sense. The don’t reflect my viewpoint anymore.
Other times I will sit with a blank screen and hope my muse shows up to help me create a post. It doesn’t.
The harder I try to be creative, the thicker the wall grows.
I’ve learned to stop fighting the lack of creativity.
I’ve learned to step away from my blogs.
I get up from my desk, go for a walk, play with the dogs, call a friend, wash dishes, read a book, or go for a (short) drive.
By removing myself from the situation, I regain a new perspective and my creativity reappears.
What do you do when your creativity stalls?
What re-motivates you?
