what to write

Usually, midnight catches me in a state of utter wakefulness. And night is the muse of thoughts.

A couple of weeks back, I had been writing ravenously. Exorcising my demons or exalting simple joys. Rising with each wave of sudden and delightful inspiration.

But when asked what kind of a writer I am, the word sporadic comes to mind. Inspiration comes in fits and starts. I cannot bring myself to write, or draw, dispassionately. I claim no artistic temperament; it's just the way it is. I have creative droughts.

Today, I found a link in my inbox sent to me by a friend who has elevated himself to the status of Link-Pimp. The link brought me to a site that jumpstarts creativity and encourages writing, even during brain-dead mode. Something I sorely need. It's a writing prompt, and I find it very helpful and more aesthetically pleasing than other sites as far as layout goes. Nice, clean look.
