On Creativity

Obviously, May did not bring my full time blogging comeback as I had hoped. I had been searching for the words to describe the lack of creativity I have been feeling lately until I read a recent post on No More Empty Fortune Cookies. She described her lack of inspiration as a form of creative constipation. And there you have it, the perfect way to put into words what I have been feeling--Creative Constipation.

And speaking of creativity...here's a short talk on nurturing creativity given by one of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Gilbert. I encourage you to listen; it's very engaging, and inspiring.

I know what you mean about the blogging blues. I go through burnout too. Sometimes there's too much going on and I don't get a chance to catch up on the blogging. Other times, I feel as though my life is too simple, too plain to write about. I posted about this not long ago. One comment that I'd share with you said, "Keep blogging. We'll keep reading." There you have it.
