Week 3 was a bust. Aggravatingly non-productive, non-inspiring. I found it much easier to read about inspiration than actually sit down and nourish my own. I stopped short of organizing my pencil pot, tho' so there's some hope.
Getting creativity back into my life seems to come in fits and starts. I felt like I'd established some momentum and then all of a sudden it's 5pm and, although, the laundry and dishes are finished, I've not much to show for rekindling flair and creativity in my life. I suspect it's like a muscle that has to be constantly used in order to stay fit and able. Of course, part of working out is also for some hoped for yet maybe elusive improvement. And the same for writing or drawing or playing the guitar, I have to make the time to both maintain and improve.
Not all was a complete loss, however. I'm still working on my San Antonio: Blue Source article for Oxford American. Not that I've been accepted nor have I even submitted but you can't submit until you have something to send. So, I'm still working through ideas on that.
I'm also working on a book about marketing/sales for small businesses (primarily in the foodie space). My partner and I have worked in a variety of different roles and for all sorts of companies: some good, some perplexing, some I still bear the scars from and thought it would be great to share what we know about marketing/sales with companies trying to do good.
For Week 4: I've got big plans and have already made some progress. Provided I ignore the laundry, and the dog hair (from two dogs blowing their coats), I should have a little more to show/share next week.
