[personal profile] hearthstone
I was going to write about this last week (the first "I" week) and didn't, wrote about something else. Now I have to, and the question I ask myself is "How do I write about inspiration when my own inspiration well has currently run dry?"

Inspiration, for me, is something that comes and goes. It has never been a constant thing--sometimes it lasts for days or weeks, occasionally for months, but eventually it will come to an end and I will be given time to recover from those days/weeks/months when ever moment not devoted to necessary other things is spent writing. It is a wonderful thing, even a thrilling thing, or at least I know it is because I remember it being, but right now in the drought season I cannot really remember it.

Which doesn't mean that I cannot write if I need something written. Generally I can. But I don't get that same flow where you just never stop. I can't, right now, say that I miss it; it is a big old time sink, after all, and the rest of life is still there waiting and rolling on its way regardless of whether the muses are visiting. But it is an "is or is not" sort of thing, isn't it?
