I’ve been staring at my laptop screen for a minute. It’s just not in me today. We all have those moments, this is mine. I’m not going to whine about it, I’m going to just write about why I feel like the words have forsaken me this evening.
If you’re like me, you probably have a regular job that requires some form of writing, typing, reading or whatever. Sometimes when doing that for an entire day, there isn’t anything left in the tank when it’s time to be creative. Hell, you spend your entire day being creative in one way or another. (Deal with a difficult client today? Yep, you used some of those creative juices to do it.)
Usually, I have enough creativity in reserves for when I come home. Today, it just wasn’t there. I could look at a variety of reasons, but in the end, I know I have to learn to better pace myself throughout the day. I know I need to break out the notebook, especially when I can’t get to my laptop. I have to also take advantage of my prime creative hours. (I just need to find out when those are.)
Ever find yourself in this situation? How do you deal with the drains on your creativity?
