Blog Block

Tara Donovan, “Untitled” (Styrofoam Cups, Hot Glue) 


The title tells all. But for those two words to be a real title, a post must be written in this space. Therefore, I elaborate: I am stuck.

I know that simply isn’t good enough. However, as this post is a struggle, I am resisting the urge to delete any words; including “I am stuck”.

Having placed “I am stuck” within quotes makes me happy to have chosen those words. They express exactly how I feel.

Blog post ideas usually pop into my mind quite readily. I then write something, find an amusing or interesting picture, and... hey presto! But, since early last week, my mind seems to have chosen to spend time elsewhere. Where exactly that is, though, I'm not quite certain.

I promise next time to write a proper post. Perhaps once my mind returns from its adventure (or relaxing vacation?)... ;)

I sat on something very squishy just after tea, if that helps.

Blog ideas can be slow in coming. I look up random pictures : )

Blog ideas are like buses - they all come at once.

Whirl - that is inspiring! :)

Natalie - I see so many images every day; I really have no excuse. *slaps wrist* ;)

Cate - so true. I should start to jot them down. :)

Sometimes when I'm really stuck I do searches for blog memes or ideas to journal about. That can help. Or I go back and work on one of my half-finished draft posts. All the same, I think we all need some time to recharge, too.

Good ideas, Caryn! :) And you’re right about the need to recharge.

My predicament, I’ve realised, is that my mind is currently preoccupied elsewhere...
