I haven't been feeling great lately. I feel rundown, always tired, and very, very unproductive. I can't seem to finish anything, or, in some cases, start anything. I'm full of ideas though, and this makes the whole thing more frustrating. There is so much I want to do, all these ideas are dancing around in my head, but I can't seem to grasp them for long enough to do anything about them. I'm frantically making lists, writing sentences, phrases or single words in my journals, but I can't even sit down for long enough for a proper journaling session.
Maybe it's inspiration overload, maybe it's all part of the process and my brain is trying to absorb all these ideas, maybe it's pure laziness.
Whatever the case it seems fitting that we're starting the Wreck this journal bookclub today (Yep, another book club blog, I don't have a life outside the blogospehere). It's scary, even paralyzing, but I think it's probably what I need. This book is way out of my comfort zone. This is a journal with instructions such as:
*Ask a friend to do something destructive to this page (Oh! The control freak in me won't be able to cope!)
*Climb high, drop the journal (Drop? And what do you mean high? How high?)
*Rip it up! (But I was told to take care of books!)
*Spill your coffee here (My coffee? I need to drink my coffee, every single drop!)
*Burn this page (What???)
*This page is for tongue painting (Gross!)
*Tear this page out, put it in your pocket, put it through the wash, stick it back in (OK, no)
If doing things like these doesn't unlock my brain, nothing will. So wish me luck!
Oh, and if you want to join us, go here.
