Finding it hard to be CREATIVE?

Creativity, I lost mine. Can I have yours?

I haven’t posted anything yet this week, but to be honest, I have been so busy working on our new self-publishing services I just haven’t had the time. Not to mention I have lost 2 computers to catastrophic failures in the past 10 days. It was their time they both had far outlived their respective lifespans. At least both hard drives are still good and the desktop must have matched my other spare desktop close enough all I had to do was slap the hard drive in and to my astonishment Windows 10 booted right up. Albeit with no sound but that’s another story for another time and place! Enough with my bad luck back to what I was saying. Um… Right… Creativity that’s right.

Music, thank god for music. All I have to do is stick my headphones in and it seems like the ideas start flowing. At least with my more visual artistic side if you can say I have one. But writing is a different story, It seems like my thought processes are much deeper when it comes to writing. I can’t have any distractions or I lose my train of thought!  That is an impossible feat with a house full of teenagers. Unless of course, it’s 2 AM then I only have to yell at one to turn his Xbox down. Ah…the joys of parenting. I would love to hear from my fellow artists and writers out there. Do you have your sanctuary somewhere you run off to when you are putting that keyboard time in?  Or could the hurricane of today’s life just swirl around you and your screen, but you wouldn’t know any different?

Wish me luck! As I dive back into photoshop.
