When There is Nothing to Say

23 May

To be honest, I really don’t have much to say this cloudless, sunny Wednesday morning.  No witty words of wisdom, no insight into the murky waters of self-publishing, no accounts of my debut novel shooting to the top of the Best Sellers list (yet)… For lack of a more grammatically correct sentence:  I got nothin’

What’s the problem you ask?  Well, folks, I’m exhausted.  As anticipated, springtime in Nashville-town has taken its toll on my creativity.  I had entered into this past weekend with the honest intention of relaxing, lying poolside and focusing on writing something brilliant. 

What did I do instead?  I gave in to every impromptu outing that came my way—on Friday, Saturday and Sunday… and last night (a school night—yes, shock and awe are both appropriate reactions). 

The result of said outings?  Besides the aforementioned exhaustion, I have witnessed some of the best live performances in town since I moved to Music City last July.  I’ve also been given the opportunity to hang out with some of this city’s top songwriters, up-and-coming country music artists as well as seasoned stage veterans.

What are my plans for this coming three-day weekend, you ask?  I’m relaxing, lying poolside and focusing on writing something brilliant… Those are my plans for now, anyway.

FYI: I just pulled 251 words out of the original premise: “Nothing to say.”  What do you know?  Maybe I do have some witty words of wisdom for you: When there’s nothing to say… write about it.

    LOL — I feel this way so often, and I’m always amazed at how much I have to say when I have nothing to say. I think you were right to enjoy yourself the way you did. It’s good to refill the creative well like that, and then the words will burst forth when you don’t expect them. 🙂

      Thanks, Donna! My creative well is overflowing at this point. It’s nice to know that this sort of occurrence is considered “normal” 🙂

    Oh trust me….I’ve had many days like this, especially in terms of my writing. I haven’t even opened up the word document of my memoir in a matter of weeks. I think my creativity drive has just decreased pretty rapidly now that summer is here and I can plunge head first into the wonderful land of pleasure reading. 🙂
