Finding the balance between being a competent decision-maker, a desirable spouse, and a kick-ass mom.

I Got Nothin’ September 1, 2011

Writers block has reared its ugly head again. I had some great ideas yesterday and promptly forgot them because I didn’t jot them down in my new favorite cross-platform app, Evernote.

So, now I am trying to remember my ideas but I’m not having much luck. I’m hoping that just writing anything, like this post about nothing, will help jog my memory. Nothing yet.

It’s like when someone’s name is “on the tip of your tongue;” my ideas are just out of my mental grasp.

My ideas are playing hide and seek in my brain. I have a vague notion of the direction at least one of my ideas is heading, but I can’t seem to catch it before it turns a corner or finds a better hiding spot elsewhere in my mind.

I’ll probably remember my ideas tonight while I’m sleeping or tomorrow morning while I’m in the shower. That’s how it usually goes. 🙂

What do you do to work through writer’s block or any other creative block? What do you do to get your ‘creative juices’ flowing?

    I am having the same difficulty! UGH!

    I find that if I jot the idea down on anything if I don’t have evernote ready to roll…just writing the words…helps burn some part of the idea into my brain. I also find if I work on something else and don’t try to remember that thing I forgot it will pop to the forefront of my mind.

    I’ve got post-its everywhere…it’s like a trail of ideas sticking up all over my desk at work. : )

    Ohh my gosh!! I have been having the worst kind of writers block for such a long time now, when ever i think i have something to put down, i find that its not there anymore.. but for me what i do to unblock, is just try to find something that inspires me, music, nature, hanging out with my family and all that.. 😀
