Some days my head is exploding with ideas for blog posts and I am overwhelmed with things I want to tell you. Tonight is not one of those days. I feel completely devoid of things to write about. This set me to thinking about where I get the inspiration for the topics I write about.
I write about what I have done that day – today I was at work in an office environment all day. I was focused on masses of spreadsheets and reports which are hardly the stuff of riveting posts. This week has been almost entirely about work so you are lucky that the posts of the past few days were roughed out on the weekend because since then I have been almost totally immersed in my work.
Things that I read can sometimes be the basis for a post – it can be a book, another blog or a news item. Nothing comes to mind.
It can be something as simple as an overheard comment or phrase that triggers the creative juices and gets me writing for you.
Perhaps it is a case of the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.
What would you write about tonight? Do you have a story to share?
