Zafra once described writer's block as somewhat like constipation of the brain. Such metaphor is seemingly so appropriate right now for me. For many days now, this post had been saved in blogger's draft and many days I've tried to open it only to save it back. Am as dry as a prune can get! No matter how hard i try to squeeze any creative juice out of my brain, any effort just ends up in vain and am left more frustrated. Days like this makes me miss attending grad school when i used to have a mountainload of readings from semantics to Discourse analysis. But since there are no more deadlines to beat, nor intimidating literature professors, my mind started to laze the day away with mindless tv viewing and lounging. My refashion projects have also accumulated dust alongside with my sewing machine as i have neglected to finish them all up. I blame it on my spontaneity...i got too much of it to the point of being sedentary. I know am speaking in contradictions but it is possible i tell ya. Am so spontaneous in decisions of making no decisions! It doesn't make sense i know but this is as far as my brain could elucidate the thought....hahaha, pardon my inarticulation! I know i gotta do something about it...so i guess i have to pull myself out of this rut and start hitting the books again to oil away corrosion in my brain. Wish me luck my dearies!!!

  3. Sometimes it can feel like you've been in a rut forever when it's only been a few days or weeks. Don't forget all the amazing things you've achieved this year - I'm constantly blown away by your ability not only to design beautiful clothes and jewelery etc, but to create your own look books and manage all the online promotion/graphics/styling for your business. I think you are very driven, talented and deserve to take time out for crap TV when you need it xx

  6. hahaha I am totally familiar with this. I am like this bum of creativity then a huge stop. I even tried some exercises with creativity and postponing things because when I am creative I notice that I do things in hurry. Like I am afraid it will slip away. But you know what, everyone of us sometimes needs a little break. Our body is enough smart to recognize that, I think so.
    And you look just gorgeous my dear.

  7. I totally know where you are coming from.

    But I trust it is only a fleeting temporary thing from the creative dearie I know. ♥

    I have been diligently clearing drafts from my blogger hehe, but there are still tonnes of photos I still have not converted to drafts. Oopsy.

    Love your photos btw, you always look so good. :)

  8. I totally get you! I was in a rut for a few weeks. I'm still finding my way back. But your creativity will come back. I found that by changing up my routine, even if only slightly, I can get some juices flowing again. And that included taking a break from the blogging world!
