I have nothing to say today, so why do I bother to write?
I’m not feeling inspired today, so why should I bother to create a painting, a drawing or take a photograph.
I used to let myself take a creative pass until I realized how fast time was moving, that the best days I’ve had finished with me in front of my laptop writing a poem, a story or a post or looking through my camera to see what pictures I took that day.
At the end of the day I might not end up with the best short story in the world or the next great novel but if I can end the day with the thought, ” I created something today ” or ” I read something wonderful today ” then I have fed my Muse, ( or my Beast as I call it ) and I know that tomorrow we are going to be able to get closer to that place where the words will come together like magic and we will walk through that forest of words where ideas will explode from the vines and burst from the trees with their sweet, luscious fruits.
And we will feast on it all.
