For a long time now I have been feeling about as creative as the average tree stump. I know that’s rather a bald way of putting it, but given the low level of my creative and expressive urges right now I think I’m lucky that I’m able to get even that out.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to present myself as some kind of creative genius at all other times…I’m just used to feeling a little more switched on than I do right now. I sit down to write something, and it just comes out flat. I try to work on a new site design, or a new image, or any kind of project and my heart just isn’t in it.

The worrying thing is, I don’t know how to get back what little creative mojo I might ever have possessed. I still have ideas, I just seem to fall down all the time when it comes to the execution, and it’s way past irritating now. It’s really getting tired…and I hate even more that this has turned into a blog post in which I whine about not being able to write for my blog.

There’s a Heinlein quote that just leapt into my mind, one from (if my memory serves me) Starship Troopers – “Soldier, shut up and soldier!”. Maybe I should adapt it for my own uses. Blogger, shut up and blog!

Yeah, that sounds about right.
