Writing Lately

In the last month or so, I’ve been distracted. Whenever I sit down to write–I just want to work on my new novel–but I can’t get my brain to settle into the story because I’m too busy burning cycles on what it means to me to experience art in general.

Another distraction

I don’t know what it means, but I know I’m in love with music, paintings, writing, movies, and friends that scratch at my brain. Most of it is honestly, pretty f’n depressing, but somehow it makes me feel amazing. The problem is that I get so immersed in my experiences that I drift away from the work I’m doing. I know that one feeds the other, but striking the balance lately has been more difficult than usual. The funny thing is, I’m not looking for inspiration–I have more than I’ve ever had before–instead, I’m so inspired that I want to be out in the world bouncing off of every bright color, falling with every leaf, fighting for every cause.

But there are others out there, already brilliantly filling the niches, lighting the dark corners of our social consciousness and sometimes, just making beauty from their lips, hips, or fingertips. So many artists and I want to shout to all of them, “Thank you!”

And then quietly, get back to work:).
