This used to be a really insightful place for me. I wonder what happened?

Stagnation occurs whenever there is a lack of free flow into the idea pool. It's part of the reason nothing lasts forever, be it governments or fashion trends or whatever. Once you've used up all accessible options in that pool, it's time to find a new one.

This journal isn't the problem. It's pool is not limited to any given ideal or circumstance. I'm the part that needs to branch out more in my writing. It's got to start dipping into more pools of thought.

Appreciation is one thing. Creation quite another. I need more of the latter to get myself going.

Another cup of coffee probably isn't a bad start, either.

Well, way to put into words my exact thoughts. Wondertwin powers and all that jazz. I find myself thinking thinks when I'm oot and aboot but I freeze at the semagic module. Creative thoughts scatter like willful squirrels being spied upon.

That, and the free-floating anxiety seem to be my problems these days.

More coffee for the ladies, I think.

What you really ought to do is come to CT to see Patrick's play this weekend.

Then, coffee for us in person!

is the reason alektraunic no longer exists as an lj

perhaps to return
but perhaps not
real life is nice

synthetic complications are greatly distracting
and recent lessons have shown that distration is one of our most severe threats

Re: and thus
I've never considered my lj a distraction though. It's a channel of thought.

The thoughts just need to get brewing.

Again, like coffee....mmmm.

habit is a great deadener

Sounds like you're in a rut.
Try breaking out of your routine (whether it's physical, mental, or emotional).

Re: Anyway...
Personally, I think caffeine is always good. But then, I've got ADD; caffeine calms me down.

When I have this happen to me, I generally try something different. My two favorite methods of doing this are 1) Reading a magazine with a radically different viewpoint than the one I'm accustomed to. 2) learning about and appreciating a new art form that I'm not familiar with.

I've found that these two activities refresh my idea pool quite nicely and even get me to better work with ideas that I've already had...
