It has to be. Sometimes there are sparks everywhere and you have ideas shooting across your mind; sprinkling stars, fairy dust and the imaginary yet audible giggles and snorts of strangers.
Then the day ends, you sit down, you make that cup of tea, put up your feet, turn on that laptop. You’re ready. There is nothing.
My theory is this; a few things in your head have to be aligned. The emotion has to be intense or at least clear. Happy or sad, amused or annoyed. The brain has to feel it. Or feel a certain mischief. Secondly whether your post is inspired by the positive or otherwise there has to be a certain skip/bounce that makes you able to and want to communicate. Basically verbal parts of the brain have to be lively – is there a vitamin for this?? And all of these things, the emotions, the desire to communicate flow around your personality that then pops out on to the page in your words. There is a fluidity and clarity in your brain. You feel what you write, even if nobody else does! Emotion, communication and personality all together and flowing around.
What can I do to bring my Sunday sparks back? I had SO many ideas on Sunday, like I swear I could have had a month’s blogs written ready, if I only could have sat down. But all I can remember from the pot of fizzing blog posts of futuredom is the phrase “bloggercise”. I decided I would blog all my thoughts walking home Tuesday. I can walk a nice off road route with the buggy by the canal back from toddler music. I would blog while I exercised and they napped. I’d done it before but this was planned; this was bloggercise. And this was the tip of the iceberg. Wtf. Anyway Tuesday came; I had slept twice and been to work since Sunday and there was nothing.
What did I eat on Sunday? Did I rest well Saturday night? What did I do? What is the secret recipe? Next time I will have a pen and paper ready….until next time I leave you. For those of you in the zone I’m well jell.
