Looking for Inspiration (and Discipline – Mostly Discipline)

I really want to be able to say I just don’t feel inspired. I don’t have anything to write about. But the opposite is true. There are so many ideas running around in my head.

Laughing.

Throwing things.

Looking for attention.

The trick is to try and catch just one or two of them and get them to sit still for long enough to decide if I can get them to be well-behaved enough to be interesting AND open to being captured in the written word.

I wonder how often writer’s block is really just that – the moment when your mind goes blank as a hundred thoughts clamber for your attention.

This is probably why God invented meditation.
