My brain is fried and the work that I have done over the past 9 weeks has left me… well… not without inspiration, but tapped out in the creative energies that I have put forth in creating a new story in tandem with building upon the first that I edited for class.

I know… blah blah blah… how many times ya gonna tell us?

Honestly, I don’t know. If nothing else, randomly blathering like this allows me to practice writing without having to commit to either Borealveldt installment. My characters and the plans I have for them spin in my mind nearly all day long. Every single day.

I have no concerns or frustrations with that, but I must admit that committing to creating something new every day is not possible. This is one of those random moments that I give myself the leeway, freedom, acceptance… that I need to let my mind have a time out, if you will.

Tools I use to revive my creative side start with simply acknowledging that a break must take place. I do the barest minimum to keep the writing practice in place, including drafting a nice bit of b.s. (ah hmm.. excuse me, but it is) for two segments that I have to write for the week giving me a sense that I did not ignore my homework.

I also watch shows that I enjoy and continue to pick stories apart for plot, and character ideas, and when I find a plot hole… oy… do they stick with me. But at least I am still practicing the skills.

Professionally – my work audit prep is done on my end, and the formal side starts this week, ends next. Boy do I look forward to getting out from under that …

Then it will be on to more fun and creative making things happen!

What are your coping tools?

 (speaking of… blah blah blah… today.. :/ … sorry)

Happy day people!

Good morning, good night wherever you are.
