Waiting for My Muse

I have recently struggled with an uncommon problem. Or at least an uncommon problem for me. I have nothing to say. Not exactly the affliction you want when you fancy yourself a verbose blogger.
I feel like I am beating my head against the wall. Every time I sit down to write, all I hear is buzzing in my head. No words. No thoughts. Just buzzing.

After a few days, it really has started to bother me.

I do recognize the irony that I’ve just spent several sentences and words talking about not having anything to say.
Then I remembered the concept of expansion and contraction that I learned from Danielle LaPorte. In the most basic terms after a major period of growth there is an obligatory stop.
It’s almost a renewal phase. I think of this phase much like the time needed to rest after a long day or hard effort.

I am not sure how long this contraction period will last. It might be three days or three weeks.The creative process and its muse are apparently fickle.

But we’ll wait it out. In the meantime, at least it’s good to know I can say this much about not having anything to say. You know what I am saying?

Sunshine & Sarcasm,

Lowi & G
