Something or other

Was at a coffee shop and I opened Word to see what I was writing and maybe add to it.  Went totally blank.  Actually, that's not true.  It wasn't blankness, it was incoherence.  Possibly caused by being in a cold corner on a cold day.  Well, at any rate, I don't want to make excuses.  Eventually I left.  If I'd let that be the end of it, I'd have to chalk that up as a setback, which would in itself be a setback.  When I got home I was able to come up with something, which is better than nothing. 

Or is it?

Looks like another Saturday Random Ten this week.  iTunes is giving me attitude after the apparently failed downoad/install.  I'll have to jiggle the handle or whatever tomorrow.

Dry spells are definitely part of any creative work. I've gone through long periods when I haven't felt the urge to draw - or at least couldn't think of a subject that interested me enough. Usually, the urge returns and it appears nothing was lost while my subconscious was sorting through stuff.It will likely be the same for you.

Saturday R10s are fine too.

The subconscious is a major factor, I think. And it's important to keep in contact with it. But how to do this? There's not just one way that will work for every person.
