Tidbits for the muse
I haven't made a lot of progress on anything this week and my creativity has taken a nosedive too. I go in spurts of work then it defeats me or my shoulder complains. Last night I was just getting into something when the power went around 10:30 and stayed off til I gave up and went to bed.
I have so many ideas in my head and I jot down notes and thumbnail sketches, but lately its almost as if I have too many ideas and as a result nothing comes to fruition. But I will persevere, I'm sure its just a phase, as its been here before and will be here again. Creativity ebbs and wanes like the tide and we all know there's nothing we can do to change that.
While waiting for the muse to regroup her thoughts, I wander, looking for tidbits to tempt her. And I found some.
