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.
I'm in writer limbo right now. SuperGym has been out for a week, and I have nothing to focus on. Actually, I have too many things to focus on, and I can't choose just one. I have another book I could be editing, but I feel a little burned out.
I've got a couple of plays that need attention, so I think I'm going to switch to theatre for a while. I need to create something new, and I have a musical that needs to be written.
I also just finished the first revision of a play I wrote last year, and I would like to do a reading before the next edit. It always helps to hear it out loud. I'm not sure what I'll do with this one, but I really like the story.
My other focus right now is reviews. I currently have a list of four books that I need to read and review. I really enjoy reading what other indie writers are writing. There are so many interesting ideas out there.
I am also working on getting reviews for SuperGym. The more reviews on Amazon, the more visible it becomes.
If you enjoy a book, especially one by an indie writer, please consider leaving a review. They're so important.
I got this picture from an awesome indie horror author, Carol J Marshall.

In a world where Trainers rule and every calorie counts, you need to get fit or die trying.
There’s only one goal in the city of Famecili, and that is to become the ideal. Toned, tanned, and beautiful. The SuperGym Trainers are going to get you there by any means necessary. Health guru, Benjamin Pratt, hand-picked them to make sure you get fit or die trying. Come train with the best of the best. It’s not like you really have a choice.
Maggie is not the ideal. She’s not toned, tan, or beautiful, and she never will be. But, she is special. She has a special power that makes her dangerous, and her body seems completely resistant to change. Mr. Pratt loves a challenge and becomes obsessed with Maggie. He is going to do everything he can to make her the ideal. Maggie is focused entirely on escaping Mr. Pratt and his SuperGyms. There is a wall outside the city, and she is determined to get over it. But, is freedom what waits for her on the other side?
