Well, slacking as far as blog posts go. New job, new commute and a lack of things to write about in this particular format have left me a little, “meh.”
That said, I’m thinking that a different format – something more thematic and with a purpose – might work better and inspire me. Much in the same way that a budget or a deadline or a very strict format can inspire people to get creative with a project, I think giving myself some limitations or constraints might also help. After all, given the option to write a haiku or 30 lines of free verse, I think I’d start with the haiku.
