I'm participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge again this year. Today's post is brought to you by the letter U.
I go through periods where I almost can't contain my creativity, my ideas, my words. The energy builds and builds until it just pours out of me. I can physically feel it well up. On the flip side, I hit roadblocks where nothing can reach me and I'm completely uninspired. I am currently experiencing the latter.
I started this challenge off like gang busters. I had ideas and jotted them down, pre-wrote and scheduled posts for several days. I foolishly thought I had this one in the bag. But as I try to come up with interesting things to say for these last few days, I'm drawing a blank. The more I try to come up with ideas, the more frustrated I become. I get irritated at my family for interrupting me, even though it's really not their fault. They are where my focus belongs, after all. This is just a side thing I do to keep my sanity. I think about quitting the challenge, but quitting anything, no matter how simple or silly, is just not in my nature. Even if I have to "phone it in", I would rather do that than give up.
I'm hoping I find inspiration somewhere soon. I don't want to end the challenge on a low note, but I have 4 more topics to pull out of my hat. (Thankfully I have Thursday already written.) Of course it would have to be the more difficult letters where topics are pretty sparse anyway. I guess it wouldn't be called a challenge if it was easy, right?!
