I have been contemplating taking another online class. Something like Beginning Writer’s Workshop or Creating WordPress Websites or Secrets to Better Photography or Certificate in Meditation or…or…or… Ok, so this list could be nearly endless. I love learning. It makes me happy.
But when would I have the time?? I’m on the go most of the time and scheduling in something that requires some definite focus is challenging, to say the least. So, how to fill the void of learning?
Well, I feel like my posts have been extremely less than stellar lately. Busy, tired, not a whole lot of time for filling the soul with the new…this leaves me struggling to connect with my creative side. This, in turn, leaves me feeling discontent.
Maybe I need to just spend an hour every day researching things on the Internet. It would fill the need for learning, in a way, and perhaps it would give me more to write about that doesn’t end up like just rambling for the sake of rambling (kind of like I’m doing right now, though I like to call it ‘thinking out loud’). Now, what to research?
I love dogs, of course, but I think there are better people out there to cover that niche (niches). I’m not the technical guru and the topic honestly bores me to tears (or sleep 😉 ). Current events? Can’t say I’m up to date with those and I think I’m ok with that. Gardening? Depression? Bipolar? Marriage and relationships? How to ___? Starring at the blank Google search page hasn’t given me any inspiration so far.
I read other blogger’s and I find lots of interesting things there. I check out the Daily Post’s Daily prompts but haven’t found a topic that has really gotten my creativity moving. I think I am in a creative slump. Maybe I’ll start a picture a day posting to move through this. Maybe a word a day prompter.
What do you do when your creativity seems to have taken a vacation without you? I would really love to hear how others deal with/make it past creativity blocks.
