I need to write in my journal. I haven’t done that in a while. Keeping a journal is helpful in several ways. For one thing: it helps bring issues to the surface and allows you to put them in a better light. For another: just writing random thoughts down, like you would in a journal, helps stimulate ideas for songs or poetry. The problem is starting the writing process. lol That’s always a bitch. One of the best ways to overcome writer’s block is to just jot down random thoughts, and then see where they lead. It’s hard to do even that, though, on a cold grey winter day…or is it? Maybe I just need to learn how to appreciate cold grey days more often. Well this blog is just random thoughts itself. So maybe I’ll get some ideas from writing here.
