An Ode To Spring. Or Not.

I'm kidding. I have no idea how to write an ode. But if I did it would be to spring. Or Lowe's. We spend a lot of time there this time of year so I'd know what I was talking about although I wouldn't say I was passionate about home improvement stores. Also odes can run very long and I don't have that kind of time.  Nor do I have rhythm. Or any kind of rhyming ability. 

But spring it is and I'm eternally grateful. 

The 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death was April 23rd.

I saw Romeo and Juliet last week. Done by our local theatre. I confess it's not my favourite. I much prefer his comedies. Which is a bit of an overstatement, I should say if it must be Shakespeare, I prefer it be one of his comedies. 

Otherwise, I confess to having taken a bit of a break from my work-in-progress. Which is a good thing. It needed to percolate for a bit. I've spent some time filling the creative well. Now it's time to get back at it. 

Favourite Ways To Fill My Creative Well

  1. Watching Live Theatre
  2. Walking
  3. Being On A Great Reading Run
  4. Talking Craft At Writing Group Meeting
  5. Working On A Different Project

What's your favourite way to stay inspired?

What a great question!

I'd say reading, listening to music, pacing (I LOVE to pace, lol), watching TV or movies, hot showers, people watching, going to new places, and wandering around craft stores (I'm not crafty, but all the different colors/textures inspire me).

I'd say you are very apt at filling your creative well! All excellent ideas. I love people watching. I was at a function yesterday afternoon and it was interesting to note which people were wearing what, what they ate and drank, how they juggled their drink and plate, they're mannerisms.

I'm not feeling particularly deep in the creative well area today. LOL. I do love Spring, though. =o)

Yes, spring!!! Hopefully the well fills soon and you are over run with ideas!

Yippee! It's spring. Nothing like rejuvenation when talking to fellow writers about our craft!

I wholeheartedly agree, Donna!
