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?!


  1. *hugs* Everyone has down days, I'm glad you aren't quitting!

    1. Thanks! I think I found some creativity to get me through to the end of the challenge. :)
