It seems ages since I posted something yet it’s only been a few days. It’s due to a spell of idle-itis on the creative front plus a need to keep WI paperwork up to date. I have new ideas, one being an information sheet to hand out to members when they arrive for monthly meetings. The sheet contains dates for diaries and some announcements, with added graphics to make it more attractive, which seems a better way of helping ladies remember things. Some nod off, you see, although I’m not sure if it’s age-related tiredness or mere boredom that causes those little bouts of shut-eye. Giving them something to take home hopefully means they can digest the contents in their own time.
I’m beginning to wonder if I’ll ever write properly again! That sounds serious and I suppose in a way it is. When I try to write something new my brain seems to seize up. I can do a chapter here and there but quickly need to take a break. The last story took ages to do but I did find that if I wrote a chapter and then broke off for a day or two, or even longer, I was able to return and write more. The advantage of that was the train of thought taking another route which gave the story a different slant each time. Perhaps it’s a signal that the brain needs a rest, one of those debilating factors that come with age. On top of that, subject matter is harder to come by but that could be attributed to reduced access to the outside world where things happen to produce ideas.
