Recharging My Creative Batteries
Yep. I really need to.
That could have been the entire post, honestly. I'm producing words--quite a few of them in fact. I'm kind of stuck on determining what my next big project is going to be. I want to focus on fantasy, maybe, or perhaps another paranormal. Whatever it is, it's not the things I'm working on at the moment. I want the project that's going to get me excited, the one that's going to crank into high gear and drives me to produce. I want the idea that takes over my life and forces me to write about it.
Yeah, I know--I want, I want, I want. It's all about what I want. That's not what it should be about. It should be about what wants me to write it.
I think I need a vacation.
Sometimes, even seeing something new can get the creative juices going. That's what I need. Something to stimulate that one great idea.
So, I think I'm going to take a virtual vacation. I need to look at some new places, maybe read something that jogs some sort of inspiration. If that doesn't work, maybe I'll take a real vacation and see what that does. The one thing I know for certain is that I can't sit around and wait for that next great idea to take me. I need to go after it and find it.
Google images, here I come.
