A week ago this time I was pondering the whys and wherefores of my lack of creative output this past year. Then I spent the rest of that week traveling around the country and then this weekend working on a review of policies and writing up our findings.
And today at SUAW! I have nothing to say.
I get it. All my mental writing energy has been used up. And yet, and yet - I still have so more I want to say, I just need the oomph to get it to bubble up again.
If the first step to fixing a problem is identifying it, then I'm on my way to fixing this. I think what I need is some dedicated concentration time. This next week I'm going to try to walk in the mornings and practice yoga, both of which have helped in the past to restart my creative flow.
Any other ideas for how to keep the creative output flowing when more structured work is dominating your life?
