I feel lucky not to struggle too much when it comes to writing inspiration. I trained as a designer so I’m used to finding visual prompts in all sorts of places: an usual sky, a tire tread, international magazines. I take the same approach to writing, taking cues from a variety of sources, visual and otherwise.
However, starting a blogging course recently seems to have paralyzed me. Wanting to craft the perfect post for my fellow bloggers to review I’ve procrastinated. Now it’s been a significant length of time since I last posted and that adds yet more pressure. I’m having to remind myself that it is first and foremost the sharing of ideas that is the important thing. When I’m pleased with my creativity then the words will follow and allow me to express those ideas.
I look forward to sharing more presents, prose and politesse soon.
