Inspiration from Cleaning
Lately I've been funk-y. Not funky cool. I mean "in a funk" or "in a slump." But as an adjective. I don't know, maybe I'm just more susceptible to weather and hormones and moods. There are just days when I can't even spell motivation.
Then the sun will shine (like today) and suddenly, I have an almighty desire to do things.
But even on days when I don't feel motivated, I've found a little solution to get me up and running. Cleaning.
Yup, a wiped-down kitchen, a vacuumed living room, a tidy work area; it'll get me all inspired. I don't necessarily like scrubbing and washing. But boyhowdy, it'll get me moving on to something else (like writing) with a feeling of purpose. Plus, when the next thing is done, the house is all tidy too.
Warning: I have to not let cleaning distract me, however, into organizing toy boxes, hunting marker caps and reassembling puzzles, or else I never move on to anything else. Then it's anti-inspiration ;)
