We're Going On A Tangent!

What happens when you open your minds eye? Do you get a flood of uncontrollable silliness or just a wisp of dust? I started this blog to keep my brain thinking, believe it or not, that is a hard task when you have a very mundane repetitive job. Not that I'm complaining about being employed, just being unchallenged. Your brain is like a muscle, you have to use it to keep it in shape, otherwise it will suffer from fatigue and eventually become nothing more than a grey sponge locked in your skull.

The worst part I have found about being creative, is actually being creative. How many times have you looked at blank page and wanted to fill it up with words and had absolutely no clue what write? I hate writers block! It is annoying and so far the best thing I have found to cure it is to just ask a question and run with it. That's all this post is, me running with the original question.

All in all, it is fun to go out on a tangent once in a while, but how do you find your way back. You could leave a trail of bread crumbs like Hansel and Gretel did. But what happens when the birds come along and eat your trail? Anyway, this has been a wonderful tangent to be on, but I must get back to reality!

I hate being unchallenged at work as well, even for those like me with crappy jobs its still nice to be challenged once in awhile.

Writer's Block plagues all writers. When I experience writer's block, I flip on the news or the radio to get my creative juices flowing. I have read from "experts" that the best thing to do is just write, "Ideas are coming," repeatedly until one really materializes. I've done that a few times, and it has seemed to work for me.

Good luck with it!
