My American Life

Last night, Mr H. and I went to see a live taping of This American Life. It was lovely, funny and inspirational. I started this blog to try to spur myself to write more (which it has done) in the hopes that it increased my creativity, or at least got me back in the habit of writing most every day and thinking like a writer again. Trying to come up with something to write about each day has lead to other ideas and thoughts. After I blogged about my experiences in the theater, I started thinking about journals I could send that type of piece to. I've been meaning to get myself to a bookstore so I could pick up a copy of this year's Writer's Market, but just haven't gotten around to it. This morning, thinking about the TAL show, I went to their website (www.thisamericanlife.org/) and noticed the submitting work link. That got me to thinking that writing something for TAL would be pretty cool. So the blog is working in a way. But all this other stuff keeps happening - I guess you'd call it life. I've been sick this past week, so in no mood to do anything outside of work and sleep. Mr. H. and I are beginning our apartment search, which I can just tell is going to take all kinds of time and end badly (well, probably not badly, just not as well as I'm hoping). We are also planning for our trip to England, which is 10 days away. So much to do, so little time. How am I supposed to write? Or think about writing? It's the never ending struggle, right? Nothing no one else hasn't dealt with. Of course, that doesn't help me any. Any ideas, any motivation you guys might have would be greatly appreciated.
