This week I am lacking inspiration for writing. Some weeks and days I can see it all around me. A story here. A story there. This week, I don’t see inspiration at all. Where did it go?
Maybe it is the fact that all my paid writing assignments are done and submitted. Maybe it is the fact that we are wrapping up my son’s school year with his final assessment completed yesterday. Maybe it is the fact that I’m letting my brain rest.
Maybe I just don’t want to see the inspiration this week. All my other responsibilities call my name this week. And I’m not talking about running to the grocery store or bank. Instead my calendar is full of baseball games, final programs, board meetings and escaping away.
Regardless, it is nice to let my brain put a pause to the inspiration I am choosing to ignore around me. I think I’ll hit the unpause button next week!
I’m posting every Tuesday as part of the weekly Slice of Life over at Two Writing Teachers.
