Stretching Already

NaBloPoMo is hard.  Day 3 and I’m struggling for content.  I think I need to get out more, remove myself from my routine, and see what life shows me.

And oddly, I am actually encouraged by the difficulty of this blogging task.  I signed up for this challenge to get over this hump, knowing it would take work, and clearly the work is at hand.  It’s a good thing to stretch.

How do you find inspiration?  What do you do to inspire creative thought?  Do you have a plan for the challenge or are you flying by the seat of your pants too?

    I would be lost without the chosen structure of responding to Mary Schmich’s commencement address. The discipline just to post is tough enough!

    I’m definitely flying by the seat of my pants. In fact, I have no idea what I’m going to write about today. That’s probably why I’m not, and have no aspirations to be, a writer!

    I’m more or less flying by the seat of my pants, hoping I can drag out a weekend’s worth of photos for an entire month if I can’t come up with anything else.

    I’m not doing NaBloPoMo this year, but if I was, I’d look to XUP for inspiration. She blogs about a log of interesting topics.

    Why don’t you blog about Freaky Nutbars?

    I’m right with you, Blue Socks. Keep up the good work!

    I heard a writer speaking on the radio this morning. She was asked about inspiration and whether that was her sole motivation to write. She replied, “No. Writing is like sailing: When there is no wind, row.”

    Like you, I have days when I have nothing to say, no witty observations with life. However, on those days, I wait until later in the evening to write, trying to find something positive or humorous to say. And if I don’t have even that, I start trolling my friends’ blogs for a spark.

    But you, Sock-babe, have a voice! You should be sailing and rowing daily to keep those creative juices roiling.
