I am feeling largely uninspired…

My Muse must have packed up and gone away for the holidays. I hope he/she/it enjoys the time away.

In the wake of the void, I am left with my other Muse, MIB. He’s busy with life and such and cannot tickle my fancy every minute of the day. This is all right with me. I don’t expect any one person to amuse me all the time.

In the other “social” networking site that I frequent, I have found my creativity drying up in a drought of massive proportions. Part of the reason for this is because I’m going to leave the place shortly. Part of the reason deals with the fact that it’s no longer a fun place to be, and hasn’t been for months. My overall interest is waning. Dare I say it? Boredom has reared its ugly head, at least in that environment.

In real life, I’m good at organizing things, but not so good at organizing my brain. I employ bins and baskets, jars and containers to contain my clutter. I am the queen of configuration and management. It’s not so easy when your head is full of ideas that are floating about like wispy clouds. Catching those thoughts are difficult, and turning them into prose even harder. It’s much easier to rely on a Muse that can direct the brain traffic and tell it exactly where to go.

Perhaps I need a quiet moment in nature, to hear the pounding of the surf, the rage of the wind and to watch the gulls squawk and chase each other. Perhaps I should follow my Muse to the shore.

  1. Take the time you need. Don’t push it. I’ve been so burned out since NaNoWriMo. I get ideas and just don’t feel like writing them.

  2. You need to go out and chase an acorn. Or just feel better. 🙂 I think that’s a lot of it.

  3. I can’t find any acorns under the snow, fluffy little cat. Silly kitty.

  4. Hm. Maybe a jingle ball?

  5. I was thinking along similar lines. I’m not enjoying being busy but I am enjoying not posting stuff. I find that the ideas that run through my head no longer end up with “how can I turn that into a post?” Of course, most ideas shouldn’t be turned into posts — even thinking that damages the ideas.

    The thing that impresses me is how quickly I’ve managed to move from thinking in terms of posts to not.

    Anyway, I completely agree with Corina. I’m sure the rest will do us both wonders.

    Oh yeah. We tested the shower. The head plumber is coming back on Tuesday. 😛

  6. Over at the place you’re leaving, there are a whole bunch of us on a thread talking about how we can’t get inspired to write anything. I think it must be the time of the year. It’s happening to too many people.

    Want a cookie?

  7. Yes. I want sushi first and then a cookie.

    Yes. It most exactly is that time of the year. I think I want to be — well — you know — shameless — I used that exact phrase just a little while ago.

    I’ve been thinking about bouncing superballs around in a bathtub. That’s quite a fun game.

    I’m also wondering what I’ll be if I grow up.

    That’s an old joke. I still like it though.

  8. I saw a little sign the other day that read, “If you haven’t grown up by the time you’re 30, you don’t have to.”

    I would like a cookie.

    This dial tone of the brain is an epidemic today.
    Is it the pause between holidays?
    I have no idea.

  9. cookiecookiecookiecookie! Roll it, I like that.

    If it helps, I was complaining about how little I’d gotten done since Thanksgiving, and then when I listed it out, I’d done quite a lot. Could be we’re all accomplishing tons and just not remembering any of it.

  10. I don’t know. Sushi with a cookie dessert sounds peachy. You can roll the sushi too, little cat. I guess it’s just like having an acorn.

  11. MOST things are just like having an acorn. That’s the great thing about them.

  12. We have cookies now.
    The world is beginning to make sense again.

  13. I think the world makes more sense with chocolate.

  14. It just does.
    Chocolate chip cookies and puns are my kryptonite.

  15. Sushi and cookies?!

    I’m too tired to be inspired, but sushi and cookies sound great.

  16. I think it’s an epidemic!
