Strategies

I think we can all agree that some days are better than others. Some days, we awaken, bubbling with creative energy seeking an outlet. Some days, we are inspired by everything, from the burping of the coffee pot to the endearing habits of our co-workers. We may speculate as to the identities of those stuck in traffic with us, or so savor a noontime sandwich that we are moved to verse.

Other days, trying to raise even one original thought seems more difficult than wringing water from stones. The demons of procrastination may sit on our shoulders until the Sandman comes round. The trials of Life Itself may stand in our way wielding a flaming sword, trumpeting forth a stentorian "thou shall not pass."
