Hi, Hey, Hello!
*Obligatory comment about how bloody hot it is right now here*
Now, I have made no secret about it, but my creativity recently has taken a huge hit and yes I am still talking about it. It used to just sort of hum away in the background and I could sort of rely on it to produce something for me if I really wanted it to. I most definitely took that for granted because it’s been all but burned out for the majority of the year. I mean it hasn’t flickered out completely, thankfully, but it’s gotten to the point where it feels like it is so small that it is pretty much non-existent.
And then today, on several different occasions I have felt weirdly overcome with actual ideas that I could actually get out of my head. And I have done just that. I’ve written in small bouts in between finishing tasks at work. Scattered notes that will probably make no sense to me when I go to comb back through them later, but they are there. I ended up standing on the platform waiting for my train and found myself my frantically typing this thing out of my head and into the notes section of my phone.
As it drew closer to me getting ready to leave work I found myself buzzing with this energy to get home and do something creative. Currently the most creative thing I’ve done so far since getting home is type this post, but I have done it with minimal procrastination involved which is kind of a big thing for me (don’t get me wrong I procrastinated it, just not as much as I usually do).
I’m currently sat on this wave of desire to do stuff and I haven’t felt that way for a very long while now.
In fact I am feeling so inspired right now that I am considering giving Camp Nano next month a try again…
We’ll see. What I am going to do tonight at least is try and get some post actually scheduled for the week so that I can direct this newfound energy into the other things that I are buzzing around in my head and are existing in half formats in various places.
Maybe this heat and summer life does have its benefits…
