Inspiration low, resetting for the morning

Last Update: June 05, 2016

Have you ever tried to sit down and write a blog only to find that you just can't get past the first paragraph?I thought I had a great topic for my blog post but I am just unable to get it off the ground tonight, for whatever reason. And that is ok.My husband and I went out to see a band in a neighbouring town last night and so we missed out on a few hours sleep because we were busy having so much fun!And that is just fine.We had an awesome night and I know that tomorrow morning after a great nights sleep tonight, I will be able to attack it fresh with a clear mind and a new perspective.Sometimes you just have to stop trying to force things and be confident in the knowledge that the good stuff will flow, you just have to let it.My inspiration is just having a little rest tonight, tomorrow will be a whole new day! Keen to get back into it!Good night.

edited to add: Thanks for your comments below. This morning the post was much easier to complete! Inspiration is back on track and feeling good for a great week of progress!

Sometimes you can just think random thoughts then tie them together like a string.

Sometimes it is big thinking and small writing. :)

The words will come when you least expect it & that is when writing is always at its best! Have a good night :-)

You'll be fine after a sleep, you will be thinking freshly again.

Lisa is right on track. If you try to force it, it just won't go where you want it to. Allow it flow. Just sit back, relax, and it will come.

You are on the right track of thinking.

All the best.

It is the same in anything you do. When dealing with accounts, we had to make sure our batches always balanced out to the penny. Sometimes I had trouble finding my mistake. If it took too long, I went on to something else. Whenever I returned to it, the mistake hit me in the face right away and I could then close that batch.

I find this many times - I can go through days of intense activity and then have to have a rest for a few days.

Inspiration cannot be forced or rushed, or it ceases to be "inspiration"! Glad you enjoyed the evening!

Stepping back and relaxing a bit is a good thing Kristine. I will bet when you go back to it the words will flow.

Looks like you have a plan, some times you just have to roll with how you feel.

I myself use to have that problem until I started reading books. I listen to the audio in the morning and I cannot stop myself from writing down notes to write about. And of course I come up with all kinds of ideas and things I want to do next. i've read at least 10 books this year and listen daily to my audio collection . If you get a chance, try this for 15 minutes and it will change everything.

So very true... We don't need to force ourselves to do things (at least creative things) ... unless we put them off for a very long period... lol :)

That's so true - sometimes you just need to step away from it, rather than trying to force things. Good luck with it today :)
