As I write this, I’m counting two and a half weeks since I last posted. For the first time since starting my blog two years ago, I’ve been struck by a heavy bout of writer’s block.
I’m pretty sure it’s because of some recent upheaval in my family life, but waiting for it to pass is no longer an option when I’ve deadlines to meet and only evenings and weekends to blog. Taking a week off work with every intention of being productive and pouring loads of my ideas and energy into this blog, actually resulted in the exact opposite last week. And so along with the clocks springing forward an hour over the weekend, it feels pretty disconcerting trying to get back into the swing of things.
In times like these where my creativity takes a nose-dive, I find hauling images from all around the web to be a great way to get back in touch with what it is that I actually like. Granted, it doesn’t make the words come any easier, but I’ve found that collating images which stir an emotional reaction in me (read: I need that in my life) goes some way towards easing me back into gear. A small thing, but all the same, I hope you’ll enjoy the proverbial fruits of my labour.
Might as well write about not being able to write, right?
