When your brain is tired, you feel uninspired. When your brain is tired, writing feels more like work than fun. When your brain is tired, things that wouldn’t normally bother you actually do. It’s been a really long week and a lot of stresses are really starting to weigh on me.
So even if this isn’t my best piece of writing, it is my brain dump. And more importantly, I’m creating a space for you to hopefully dump yours.
For the first time in a long, long time, my mind is totally blank. So this is really want this exercise is about. It’s why i created it in the first place. I’m usually never uninspired for writing. I can always write about something (clearly) but it’s always better when that writing is inspired.
It’s interesting to see everyone’s style that participates in this exercise. Some people tell complete stories that I am amazed are written off the cuff in just about 5 minutes. Other people simply write about exactly what’s going on exactly at that moment.
I usually have an idea of something major that’s on my mind. And I generally use this as a brain dump for that topic. But here’s what’s going on in my mind. True stream of consciousness.
Must be nice to get up and go to bed anytime you want without considering any obligations to wrap up the house for the night. I’m so tired that I feel like I’m going to be tired forever. I stay up too late and get up too early mainly because late at night is the only time I get to myself. I’m also getting really sick of looking at cities and towns and houses. I’m learning that my new adventure in living is not the same as my husband’s and I’m seriously worried about where we’re going to live and I’m secretly worried that I’m just going to give up and tell him fine, you pick where you want to live and I’ll just deal with it. But when I think about living someplace that I can’t see as home, it makes me want to cry.
