“Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?” ― Kurt Vonnegut
I have written on and off throughout my life, leaving it mostly behind after college. After my graduation, my time was devoted mainly to practical matters, those revolving around work, food, home, and family. There have been brief forays into writing and other types of creation, but they have been brief.
Now that I am attempting to get back into the game, so to speak, I have found it sometimes difficult to find a topic for writing, much less even to write. I suppose part of this comes from the everyday stresses of life that seem to overwhelm any access to the imagination. Or perhaps I am simply out of practice. Most of my writing lately has consisted of short articles geared toward gaining an “online presence” and hopefully earning a bit of money. This is certainly necessary in my current financial situation, but even writing those little articles can be somewhat difficult at times.
When words come but little, I have lately been working on altering digital pictures. The change in media is enjoyable and will hopefully stimulate some more extensive writing than the short articles and tips for Bubblews. The work seems a little indulgent, but it helps to get beyond that brain freeze that I’ve been experiencing lately. I may also again create an account on 750words so that I am forced to write and with a definite goal in mind.
So forgive me if I share my pictures from time to time. That currently is my bit of creative fun. Having completed a few of them, I will be returning to writing, especially that of my ebook and longer articles. Who knows? There might even be a poem deep down in this brain of mine.
