So my creative juices have been a little stagnant lately. Also doesn’t help that I am trying to write this post without the help of my other favorite kind of juices (aka alcohol). Pretty brave of me, I know.
*Side note: I am listening to Radiohead’s Burn the Witch right now and have had it on repeat for about 2 weeks. Kind of scared for myself. Kind of don’t care.
Anyway, back to my problem of my creative juices not flowing very easily lately. It’s like I have so many thoughts on what to write about and no thoughts all at the same time. Does that make any sense? No? Cool.
I would like to be writing constantly. Mostly because people love hearing my opinions about things (that is joke, but is it?) and partially because it allows me to be creative. I am most happy and most free when I have an outlet to release my creativity.
Maybe I need to come up with a ritual to unlock my inner creative tiger. It was rumored that Led Zeppelin would sit around and drink coffee together, and Robert Plant would need a designated area for ironing his shirts before they took the stage. I am thinking mine should be something along the lines of sitting down with a slice of pizza and a beer, then have another slice of pizza and another beer and repeat that process five times. This ritual actually sounds like a typical Friday night for me, but I digress.
What do my fellow writers/bloggers, out there, do when they are in a writing slump? Do any of you have a special “ritual?” How do you get your creative juices flowing?
I want to hear from you! Please share all your secrets with me.
