Where’s the cake when you need it…?

I would love to do a complete blog on cake but this is not what this blog is about and after getting back to my running regime today it would seem frivolous to indulge in such things today, unfortunately.

This blog is actually about creative thoughts and ideas.   If you have read my blog before you will know that I’m part way through writing the first draft of a children’s book.  My first.  Needless to say a good book, with a great idea behind it.  But there comes a point when inspiration runs dry and you have to take a break to gather some new information and inspiration.

I think it’s a bit like solar power.

You have this reserve of ideas which at first you steam along using as much as you can as quickly as possible, all is going along merrily and then one day you use it all up.  It runs out.  And stop.  You sit at your laptop staring at the screen.  Nothing.  You go and make a cup of tea and sit back down at your laptop.  Still nothing.

You think ok, let’s be sensible and logical about this, like all things it will come to you, you need to be patient and relax.  The next week you open up your laptop and… nothing.  You go for a run.  Nothing.  You are at the point of giving up… again!  Then you remind yourself why you started the project in the first place, to try something new and have some fun.  Have some FUN dammit!

So here starts a period of having fun, the book can wait.  It’s not eating anything or harming anyone after all eh?  It’s time to get out, get some more inspiration, re-charge those imaginative/creative solar brain cells.

Hope you all have a day of re-charging and bags of fun too.
