A anti-creative fog has befallen me. A gloominess of spirit has descended. I start contemplating the meaning (or meaninglessness) of existence. I start to obsessively search for all the bad bits in the newspaper (it isn't difficult). Like a little grey cloud I carry it above my head - I feel people stare at it. They may even point. I think it has something to do with all that creative zing I experienced during the last few months of 2008, and the excitement of xmas, and now I am all zinged out. No ideas, no inspiration, no nothing.
The best thing for me is to ignore it, and hope that like a pestering child, it will eventually give up and go away. I know that another best thing to do is sit down and create something. But I just do not seem to be able to do it. Do you ever lose your zing? How do you get yours back?
