You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
I’ve been doing that a lot lately. Waiting for inspiration to come find me while I sit back and read other works of fiction. As someone once said (and no I can’t remember who nor do I want to Google it) ‘There’s a great big world out there’ and I’m not paying attention to it.
Goes to show what not watching the news will get you sometimes. 😛
But in all honesty- I have been doing new things they just haven’t inspired me in any way. I mean shooting my handgun is completely new, but you can’t really base a chapter off of it. Well, I can’t. I’m sure Lyo could if he was a writer.
I also went and saw a one woman play last weekend. It wasn’t bad, but all I could think about was that the DVD they are going to be filming next month is going to be a disaster. Think about all those plays you see on OPB that were filmed in famous theaters. The TV version didn’t do justice to the play or the actors. I think this one will be the same.
And it is kind of how I’m feeling. Like I’m watching a play, in this case read my life, on TV instead of upfront and personal.
I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
Really I don’t know.
My mood could also be from the fact that I’m coming to the end of a book series where I will either have to wait for the next book to come out or find a new one.
Some days the choices are just too hard. 🙂
