It's grey, it's February and it's raining. Mind you it's not snow.
This is the acid test for me - to find inspiration not only to blog, but to create momentum to shoot myself into the day's work.
I've even done some ironing this morning - displacement activity of a high order.
I'm not glued to my computer like a lot of people but this morning because my brain seemed stuck in some primeval mud, I did some surfing.
I took a peek at some other writer's blogs - in this case Neil Gaiman. Now I have to admit to not reading many of his books but I did love his short story collection- short stories being more of a favourite genre than novels.
And after my flippant comment about not having snow, found an entry about him shovelling snow at midnight. Made me laugh, set off some light bulbs and now I'm off and running.
About to edit an article I wrote for a client Elizabeth Wray, last week about stopping smoking. She's outrageous in the way she works as a pyschologist and hypnotherapist so I can be, how shall I say, more direct than for some clients.
So what kicks you off to write, not only what you want to write, but maybe like me what you have to write?
