I try not to whine about writerâ€™s block on the blog becauseâ€¦ wellâ€¦ complaining about it doesnâ€™t make it better! 🙂 But lately Iâ€™ve been struggling to be inspired as I write revisions to a big proposal. I try not to panic when Iâ€™m facing a block, as I know inspiration will eventually strike. But I was starting to get a little nervous as the document sat in my inbox, lonely and unfinished.
Last night, I was laying in bed with the Husband, and we were talking about the block. I said I felt unmotivated for not being able to write and went to sleep feeling a little guilty, like Iâ€™d been playing hooky when I shouldâ€™ve been in study hall.
Lo and behold, I woke up this morning with the urge to WRITE.
And write, write, write I did! :) It felt GREAT! Like an emotional cleansing.
We also enjoyed breakfast in bed:
Guess itâ€™s officially Fall because Iâ€™m drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes like itâ€™s my job and craving hot oatmeal.
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Hazelnut syrup
- Toppings: blueberries, chia seeds, and pecans
Get thee to Marshallâ€™s or TJ Maxx and pick up some flavored syrup for your oatmeal, stat.
Off to enjoy this wonderful day and be thankful that Iâ€™m alive.
On that note, itâ€™s the 9th anniversary of 9/11, and I heart the good old US of A. Donâ€™t know what else to say on the subject of 9/11 (guess Iâ€™m all written out for the morning), but I am remembering the souls that passed on this day and am eternally thankful for our country and our troops.
