The Creative Pull




Lately, I've noticed a change in my creative pull. Maybe it's a permanent thing, maybe it's not, and I can't decide if that's a good or bad thing. Quite frankly, the whole thing has me confused. It's not that I don't have a creative drive anymore, but rather:

1. I have too much of it, and I can't quite reign it in.

and/or

2. I'm distracted too often by other things.

Honestly, it's probably a combination of the two. In my defense, however, I have been busy living life. Life has been pretty good this year, and I find myself really living. I've been doing a variety of things that I've found fulfilling and enjoyable, and that's been a huge boost to my overall emotional health. My whole life, before the last five years, has been a huge struggle. Even after figuring myself out, it's been a learning curve the last five years. I can truly say now, though, that life is grand.

I'm still working daily on my book, "The Box", and I've dusted off some other works as well that have been sitting around. I'm still productive, it just seems to be working differently. Maybe that's it then: I've just changed and grown, and my writing routine has changed and grown with it.

I guess I'll embrace it as it goes, and see where this new routine leads.

In the meantime, have a great weekend!
