As you may have noticed my posts have been – um – not quite as regular as usual. Ok, ok. They’ve been few and far between. It’s not like I don’t have things to post about – Viva Las Vegas – it’s just that I’ve been completely lacking in inspiration.
I’ve repeatedly heard and read that if you have a blog you have the opportunity to write every day and that you shouldn’t let that opportunity pass you by. But I already write every day - for work.
For example, yesterday I wrote a letter to opposing counsel, a supplemental discovery response and an opposition to a motion to compel. You may think this doesn’t qualify as creative writing but let me tell you, you get pretty creative coming up with ways to convey to the Court that opposing counsel are bumbling buffoons who couldn’t find an intelligible discovery request with both hands and a map without actually using those words or any words even slightly as colorful. Subtlety is a creative art form.
The truth of the matter, however, is that I’m a lazy writer. If it doesn’t flow I procrastinate until it does or until a deadline makes me and with this blog there are no deadlines in sight. So, I need to either put my nose to the grindstone and pound something out or wait for inspiration to strike or . . . .
Help me out here: What do you do to get yourself inspired or make yourself just start writing? Tips and entertaining stories welcome ;)
