A Non-Bloggy Day

I woke up this morning completely blank. I mean it...DULL, NOTHING, BORING. So what do you blog about when your mind just isn't functioning? Hell if I know. Lots of stuff has been going on at home. You know, real life stuff and it's been a tad hard to concentrate. I realized the other day that I've gotten a little overwhelmed with everything. Non-stop writing since early January has me feeling a little burned out and basically I just want to sit back and breathe for a bit.

But you know the old saying...Publish or Perish? Well, there is some truth to that. I've taken a little over a week off, played with some story ideas and handled things on the home front. Still I'm feeling the need to decompress.

So please help the boring, dull, lifeless troll that I am come up with some ideas. What do you do to decompress? To get back in the groove of things? Tell me please. Inquiring minds want to know.

I meditate a little, but mostly I empty my mind of all my stories. Then to kick start my muse, I listen to music. It's hard to find something to blog about every day. I'm helpless in that case. Like you said there is so much going on in my life right now that has nothing to do with writing that it's hard to think. My middle son is graduating from high school next week so my mind has really been occupied with that.

Hugs to honey, this too will pass and you'll be inspired to create new and extraordinary things!

I think we all go through this one or ten times a month.

Like Judith, music often helps. So does a nice bubble bath and glass of wine.

When I'm restless, I just need the downtime and do other things. Sometimes other creative stuff.

Life is hectic right now. My head spins and I just have trouble putting all that is going on aside. And most of it doesn't include me, but as mom and wife, I'm in the loop.

just walk away from the comp..do other non creative everyday stuff i,e walk the dog bake a cake anything that you dont have to think with. meet up with the girls have a little down time sometimes you just have to walk away and take time for your self other wise it stops being enjoyable and becomes a chore i understand that writing is your job ..but it only makes you money if its done right
