So I have been trying to write on the projects that I gave myself to work on for the summer and I have been coming up with nothing really. I'm not really complaining, I am just stating.
Creativity comes and goes. It comes like the waves of the ocean. It rolls in, hangs out for a moment and then pulls out again. Sometimes, you get wave upon wave that roll in on top of each other and you are just inspired for a long time. But eventually, the waves all pull out to regroup. So what happens to us while they are regrouping?
For me, I can't make anything happen. Nothing at all. I can try and I can even have ideas that are good. But I can't execute them in the slightest. It's frustrating only because I know that I want to work on these things, but at the same time, I know that I just can't right now.
So what do I do during these times? I would love to share. Thanks for asking.
I immerse myself in things that are creative. I know that eventually, the waves will roll back in again and it will be time for me to go at it. So if I immerse myself in the things that I love now, when it comes time to write again, I will be charged up to full. We should always immerse ourselves in the things that we love anyway. It's good for the soul.
So while the waves regroup, I'm immersed.
