Do you ever feel like the well has run dry in your life?
Maybe it's coming off of a three day weekend where I allowed my brain to shut down and not be a slave to social media and lists. Maybe it's due to being in the middle of a blog tour and I've been writing several guests posts for other sites (which is so wonderful to get to share your thoughts on someone else's blog). Or because I've been preparing for my mini book tour/road trip at the end of June to Maine. But I looked at my blog today and thought "I have nothing to write about."
These things can certainly happen and I think it happens to us all. That 'end of school year' feeling when you didn't want to do any more work because summer was coming. Plus we got hit with a heat/humidity wave in the Northeast that sort of sucked the life out of all things creative in my brain. Sitting in an air-conditioned room was all I could do.
When my well runs dry: I re-group. I stop and think of the exciting things I have going on in my life and what is coming up. (That's the planner in me. And I saw a report the other day that the anticipation of something is many times just as exciting as the actual event.) I'm really excited about some projects on the horizon as well as a few summer trips I have planned (starting with next week when I get to be with my family in Punta Cana to celebrate my sister's upcoming marriage in a beach ceremony).
For now, I continue to plowing along and I know my creative juices will return - at some point.
So if your well dries up...don't fret. The rain will come again and fill it up with the greatly needed sustenance to get you back on track.
