A relatively short post for you today – It is not un-common for me to have a bunch of draft posts waiting to happen, or waiting to be completed, and posted. Some I might work on from time to time over a few weeks, others I will just pick up and complete. When it came to completing a post for this friday, I was completely uninspired. Nothing I had in the drafts I fancied picking up on. Nothing new was coming to mind. I had not had much time to work on blog this week, I thought about giving this friday’s post a miss. This was wednesday evening.
Thursday lunchtime I still did not seem too inspired, but I figured I could write a short post on being uninspired. Then I realized that fit in with the “ideas” posts, and suddenly I did have a post. You see, thinking about writing this topic, in this context, sparked something. It is a process of generating connections. Once you have a connection, an idea or two, and a context, then following the trail of more connections can begin. It may be something small or lead to something large, but where you choose to take it, is up to you.
So my question to you is, what do you do when feeling completely uninspired, but still want to put something out there? What gets you going / motivated?
In other news, whilst I have not been blog inspired over the last few days, I have had an idea for a bunch of small stories, which are just daft things, but may well make for an interesting experience on the blog. Well an interesting learning experience for me. They follow the adventures of one character trapped in a daft sci-fi scenario, but don’t worry, it isn’t too geeky, and is more humorous. I think I may develop this some more then see what I can come up with. Hopefully they will make for good reading.
