I've been feeling blocked lately. It may have something to do with the enormous amount of time that I have had to spend working on school work or it could be that I haven't really been inspired to write lately. So to get the creative juices flowing I decided to take a little drive this afternoon. I didn't really drive to go anywhere specific just to turn up the music, let my brain wander and get out of the hole I've been in for the last couple of days.
Nothing is better than setting the cruise control, singing at the top of your lungs and just letting it all go. I just let my mind wander where it wanted. I actually will say that about the time I hit Fort Smith and the sun peaked out of the clouds I actually started coming up with some good ideas again and I feel the energy and inspiration I felt a couple weeks ago. I think that I might actually get somewhere on my newest script now.
Now I probably wasn't the safest driver at 80 mph taking random pictures of the things that I saw or the views that inspired something in me but I didn't wreck and I didn't cause anyone else to wreck. There is a point when you are coming back into NWA and you top the hill before you reach Fayetteville that is one of my favorite views on I-540. You can see all of the U of A on the hill and at night the lights make it spectacular. When I was going to school in Conway this was my favorite part because it meant that I was home again. Seeing that view today, it felt just like it did back then. I wasn't even gone for more than 2 hours but yet again I had this feeling that I was home again and nothing beats that feeling.
