Writers Blo

What do you do when your mind just won’t concentrate enough to…..um….

What was I talking about?

Ever since I got over the flu I seem to be at a loss for anything I really want to …….er, where was I?

Nothing seems to be inspiring me or outraging me right now, even though there are a LOT of inspiring and outrageous things going on. I don’t feel creative enough to even write something clever, except perhaps something about how I can’t write anything write now, and who wants to read that, I mean….really.

I have pounded my head against various flat surfaces and that didn’t seem to help much. Nor did boxing my own ears…though maybe I did that wrong since I have no idea how to box ears. I tried kicking myself in the ass…..but that just made me fall down.

Oh well, it IS a Holiday weekend, and I have written something almost everyday for four years now, maybe a break is good. After all we are transitioning from one reality to another right now, and maybe my brain is just scouting ahead or something, because it sure ain’t doing much else. Or maybe it’s the tryptophan?

I just hope I don’t disappoint my fan.

Ok I have wasted enough of your time on this drivel, with me out of the game you guys need to be writing something to cover for me! Instead of listening to me whine…and dither!

And if anyone sees my brain, tell it to get its ass home!

    That tends to clear my mind.

  2. what to do, in the open thread. Go do some kind of mindless busy work.

    Anyway. We’ll just have to hold down the fort.

    But not my brain.

    And my rake broke. Some Carpenter bee made a big hole in the handle.

    Before that I watched Ice Road Truckers and the World’s Strictest Parents. I didn’t even know those shows existed until ek posted them. Thanks.

    I shouldn’t even comment really.

  3. …cept I haven’t written daily for 4 years.  But, I mean, my brain feels dead, nothing to say, what was I doing here anyway, not inspired nor outraged.  And I haven’t even had the flu.  I have nothing to blame.  It’s me.  It’s me.  No, I won’t accept that, but…

    …pardon me, I need a nap!

    when the inspiration moves you.

    Read, research when it doesn’t.

    Take time to tend to your other life goals.

    Creativity is like the wind,

    some days it rages,

    other days it’s mute and missing.

    Nothing wrong with taking a break.

    The mind needs to absorb,

    what it has done, and what is still needed.

    Hobbies like exercise, hiking, photography, movies,

    visiting friends and family,

    can recharge those creative batteries,

    in ways, that sheer will power can not.

    1st rule of Write Club:

    First you must have something to say …

    (the rest is, just “busy work”)

    2nd rule:

    Enjoy the breaks.

    it takes a little perspective

    to find a solid place,

    for outrage, to take its stand.

    Other times, watchfulness,

    is what the times, require.

    Knowing the difference, is what makes us

    smarter than the average bear!

  4. I can sympathize.  There’s a lot I want to say about the state of the world, and some stories I want to write, but when I go to actually write them down, nothing comes out.
