I had great intentions of typing up all kinds of brilliant posts to share this weekend. And in my defense, I might have followed through on my intentions but I was totally exhausted from working on the projects (that I still need to post about :)). Monday evening I sat on the couch to dream up what to write about, and fell asleep. At 8pm. I didn’t wake up until 7:30am the next day. It was glorious. Last night, I meant to sit down and type up something amazing. The words didn’t come.
That happens sometimes- writer’s block. It’s not so bad. I spent 4 years through college in the school of Journalism, where my classes were all about writing, plus I had to write all those regular pesky college papers. Words are fantastic- when they come. When they don’t? Just breathe and take a break. Walk away and find something that inspires you and conjures up an emotion deep down in you- then write. Write about sunsets and babies and the smell of spring. Write about the way a dogs tail wags or the way the bees swarm in and out of the bushes- all synchronized and beautiful, yet terrifying (to me!). Write about an open field with a blue sky and perfect white clouds and the sun beating down gently- lulling you to sleep, one slow eyelash flutter after another.
Most of all- write about what you love.
As a professor once said- don’t think of writing as a chore but rather an illicit affair you get to steal away with every day. Oh la la! 🙂
I digress. The point is I was up early this morning, sitting at the computer- putting together a post and it wasn’t good. The thing is, I spend a lot of time on projects and photographs and I want the final product to reflect all those hours and efforts- not to be thrown together when I am so tired that my vision is blurred and I am just thinking of how to say the most simple sentence without sounding…simple.
The point is- this is my post for today. This is where I am at. Tomorrow, I have something I am excited to share but I want to share it well. You all deserve the best.
Happy Wednesday my friends!
