Peeps, we have a problem. And it may or may not include the fact that I just called you “peeps.” I have writer’s block. It might be because I have my first contributor post on Makeunder My Life (it’s about our financial intentions, if you’d like to stop by). Or maybe it’s because I was sick earlier this week. Yes, my creativity is still hanging out on the couch with a bottle of Gatorade.
Either way, I have writer’s block.
When I don’t want to run, I eventually lace up my shoes and head out the door. Of course I wear the rest of my running clothes. With writing, what am I supposed to do? Write? What if I have nothing to say?
I looked all around for inspiration. My Google Reader…nothing. Etsy and Pinterest…nope. I even scanned MSN, the Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune. I came up empty.
I complained to John for a little bit and he offered a few suggestions. I turned them all down. He even offered to put on his painting clothes so I could write a post about painting. I still said, “no.” There isn’t anything in the house to paint.
Off to yoga I went. When I came home, my mind was still blank. I suppose that’s a good thing. More Etsy and Pinterest….nothing. I decided to shower and get ready for bed when my idea struck. Why don’t I paint my toenails at 10pm to show you my go-to nail polish color? Yes, that seemed like an excellent idea.
So here we go, my favorite fruit punchy pink…OPI’s Peru-B-Ruby.
Well, look at that! It seems that I have a blog post! And some pretty pink toenails :)
How do you overcome writer’s block? Any surefire inspiration bringers?
