When I started off writing this daily blog, I was often scrambling for ideas.
Whenever an idea struck me, I would pull out my phone and rush to make note of it, lest it get buried under some work email or Whatsapp forward.
With time, though, I rarely have this worry. I don’t fret as much about ‘lost’ blogpost ideas. I am now confident that if it is a good enough idea, it will stick around until I write the morning after. If it doesn’t, it probably wasn’t good enough. Also, some other idea will show up when my fingers hit the keyboard.
When we start off a creative practice, a dearth of inspiration is a nagging worry. A regular practice serves as a cure for this poverty of ideas.
