      Salt that is what I feel like whenever I am free. These few days are an exception though as I have a lot of work to do online.

      Try starting a new blog on a topic of interest.

    I just checked out your Haiti update. I have been trying to find one as I was concerned. Thank you for that.

    thanks all, all very true points... !!!!! and I did have an extra half glass of red last night, maybe that fixed the problem!?

    I can usually on cope with one glass...

    And I did, started a small hub to get going again and it worked. There are one or two that I have been working on for awhile that I was stuck on and Ive done a bit of work on those today.

    So Im back in the flow a bit and heading back to where I intended to be with my writing.. which is good, I was getting a bit lost.

    I think that was half of the confusion. Plus, you read some really good writing and you think.. wow I could have written that, but they did and then you see really good writing that you couldnt have written and you think I can never do as good as .....

    Then you get sad, dispondent, wonder why you ever bothered, who were you kidding, whats the purpose.. its not like real writing anyway...

    Then, you wake up and start something easy.. look through your other work, edit a few spelling errors and your back in the flow ...

    thanks

    maybe Ill make a hub on this!

    and yes, the brewing is important. I find after you go through a lul - a few ups and downs in mood and activity, you find that magical space again where the words are like a dew drop on the tip of a leaf in the morning sunlight, with the sound of a distant bird singing ....

    I do the same thing, I find it hard sometimes to get the motivation to write until it happens, so I just keep flicking, and flicking.

    lol Im getting there ... and then when you do get motivated, you have to go somewhere or do something... but I can get there...I will get at least one hub published per day for the next 30. I will get my unfinished hubs finished and I will perfect the ones Ive already published.

    Well, Salt.. I've seen your hubs come up and the titles are enticing ( must read).. I just get wrapped up in my sphere..
    The tracing in 'addiction'.. Save yourself! LOL
    Make yourself 'get away' before it takes you completely over... I had a mishap, which took 2 weeks to sort out and it was the bestest thing ever (for my being)
    Anyway, looking forward to reading those hubs...in time smile
    All the best.

    I write everyday no matter what. The first thing I do each morning is write. No exceptions. Then I have the rest of the day to do what I want. This is my commitment to me. It may work for you.

    Best wishes.

    Time to get focused Salt, inpsiration is what you need, perhaps, sit back for a while, read a magazine or book, watch a TV programme, something will come to you and inspire you to write smile
