It’s after midnight, it’s cold outside and I can hear thunder in the distance, hell, I just saw some lightning too. It’s early morning on the 18th of January and we’re having a thunderstorm. Just another sign that things aren’t normal. Then, what constitutes normal? Normal is me publishing at least one post per day. That didn’t happen on the 17th of January. It’s not from the lack of trying, I can tell you that. My journal has eight entries that were started but were not finished, they aren’t finished until they get marked “Published.” I’m not sure just what the trouble is, but I haven’t been entirely satisfied with what I have been writing. I find myself starting something and erasing it, then starting it again. I have a lot of half finished things that are not meeting the standard I like to think I have set. Recently, I have been noticing that the right words aren’t coming when and where I need them. I don’t know if there is some kind of disturbance in my creative rhythm or if there a block holding back my creative juices. (see, that last sentence, while it may be a bit cliche shows me that the creative center of my brain is functioning) So, maybe I’ll go finish that book I’ve been reading, or, I’ll watch some crappy late night TV. I guess I need to do something to keep my mind off writing for a while. Maybe things will seem more clear in the light of day.
Also, I’m interested in you other bloggers’ writing/publishing process, at least the “physical” aspect of it. I think I have finally settled on my own and I’d like to hear what the rest of you do. So keep that in mind.
