Where does creativity come from?
I've been floundering around between several projects for the last couple weeks. I'm getting things done that need finishing. I've been making progress, but it's so scattered that I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything.
I tried several times during the last couple weeks to sit down and write something, but it just wasn't happening. I don't like to think of it as writer's block. More like I just put out something I have been working on for years, and I needed some time for my creative reservoirs to refill.
Today, I had an idea. It's something that has been floating around in my head for a while now, and today I was ready to write it. I'm not sure why it all came together today, but whenever I can, I try to sit down and write when the mood strikes. I wrote a new 10 minute play this morning. There's a local playwriting contest coming up, and I think I may submit it. Why not?
My creativity is on its way back! It just needed a little vacation.
Meanwhile, I am still putting my book out there. SuperGym: Get Fit or Die Trying is a dystopian fitness nightmare that will keep you guessing until the end.
