Inspirationless: n. Lacking inspiration, drive, and creative spark.

It ain't in the dictionary but it should be. I've been going through a seriously lack of it lately. I sit down to write and don't. There is no fuel for the fire. It's depressing but it's my fault.
If I had a little more patience, maybe I could get the job done. A little less stress, a little more time... surely it could all work out. But I don't, so here I am---

---in a rut. Yes, the dreaded writer's rut. It's not my first time and it won't be the last. Still, it doesn't make it suck any less.

So I've scoured the internet looking for ways to inspire myself. It usually works like a charm. But it hasn't. Instead, I found the inspiration I need to pick myself up and climb out of this preverbial ditch though other means. Reading means.

I love to read but I'm picky when it comes to finding books that bring me to my knees. I like a lot of books, but they don't all speak to me. This one did. I didn't have to push myself forward into reading it-- the author did. I simply stepped on a literary flying carpet and the author made it move. I didn't have to make leaps of intuition or think "is that really logical?". She brought me from page to page seamlessly. And it made me realize the beauty that is writing. It made me want to write so that I could make magic. It's a challenge, but one that I enjoy. So thank you to author Rachel Vincent for getting me out of my rut and being a magician of her own.

So your inspirational clip of the day? Here you go! Yes, I may be dabbling in my post-apocalyptic book today...
