I am in one of those discouraged moods. I know I won’t stay there long, but at the moment I am having one of those self pity “woe is me” parties. I know things take time and I just need to persevere. Life just doesn’t seem to move as quickly as I want it to at times. When I am in one of these moods, it zaps my motivation and makes it hard to get things done.
Right now I could either curl up reading a book for hours or watch television without really watching it, but just to distract my mind from thinking about things. Neither one of those would really be productive choices, when there is so much that needs to be done. Yes, we all need some down time, but I feel I have had way too much down time this week.
Instead I thought I would write, because usually it seems I feel better when I write. The only problem is I don’t know what to write about and there is nothing I really have a great desire to write about right now. I have looked at my list of article ideas, but none of them are interesting to me at the moment.
This blog post may be the only writing I accomplish today, but I am exploring the internet some for article ideas. I found a website called Quips and Tips for Successful Writers at http://theadventurouswriter.com/blogwriting/how-to-get-ideas-for-magazine-articles-freelance-writing-tips/, which had an article with some useful suggestions on how to get ideas. If I can get motivated at least maybe I will work on a list of some ideas after answering some of the questions I found there. Well, away I go to surf the internet some more, but hopefully will not lose myself there too long and will find a spark of motivation.
