Bitch Killed My Vibes

kalani-hilliker-good-vibes-860x500Do you ever have those times in your life when you just cannot access your vibes? Its like my head is filled with glue. I can’t write, I can’t pick up on my gut feelings, I can’t think how to decorate my home… I try to do it and I get stuck in the glue.

It is stressing me out.

I want to get back in touch with that side of me so I’m going to try to:

  1. Get outside more often – Elizabeth I used to wake early and take a morning walk around the palace grounds and she used to run a freakin’ country. I did this today (sans palace) and, while my head is still quite glue-y, I got so many great pictures of the local area to get my creative juices flowing. I think it could really help me if I kept it up.
  2. Get ready and show up – I feel like creativity is a sport sometimes. Yes, you need some natural tendencies towards it but you also need to practice and you need the equipment (even if its just a pen and paper). So, I’m going to try and get dressed (i.e. not be in my dressing gown until midday because I can) and tidy up my flat enough so that when I am ready to read or write or doodle, I do not have any distractions like “is that popcorn on my floor and can I still eat it?”.
  3. Work it like you stole it – For my writing specifically, I think ‘work it like you stole it’ is something that could really help me get back into writing, even if its just writing a drabble of someone else’s characters or in someone else’s world/setting.

These are just a few things that I’m going to try until I get my vibes back and, if in doubt, I’m just going to follow the advice of ‘Write Drunk, Edit Sober’… Β Although without the editing part because that’s The Worst. So really, I’m just gonna get drunk!
