Inspired

Despite a sick baby. Despite still having no energy. Despite my neverending to do list.

I am feeling SO inspired today. I think it's a combination of doing Kal Barteski's Nurture Your Creativity class again + watching this TED talk with Elizabeth Gilbert this morning.

I just want to WRITE.

It's so hard to describe. It comes from my very core and I wish to the stars that someone would just start making deposits into my bank account for no reason whatsoever, and give me the freedom to just write words - no clients, no deadlines, no invoicing - just the words that are inside of me that need some time + space + energy to come out.

Reality sucks away my inspiration sometimes. OFTEN times.

Lately, I feel like I'm just FULL of ideas + creativity + inspiration, but it's being blocked on every level and I JUST CAN'T GET IT OUT. It's been messing with me. It feels like this giant mass inside of me and it's so uncomfortable to live with it... It wants to get out and be free. I cried about it today.

I don't expect it to make sense to a lot of people. Either this will sound completely reasonable to you, or you're going to call me and suggest medication.

I really need to figure out what to do about this.

Argh.



Sorry. Can't resize this one. It's just going to look stupid for a while :)

I have no idea if you are like me, but when I have all the time in the world to write, I can't. My best writing comes when I can just squeeze it in, or when I have a crazy stupid deadline, or I'm half distracted. I always feel like "time to write" would be great, but it never works out for me. But I'm not saying "make time!" I freaking hate that.

Totally makes sense. And I *heart* you. Did you know that? This post made me *heart* you even more.

I totally get it! It works itself out, but it's a nasty pent up feeling in the meantime.
