Inspiration? Where?

While we wait to see if another Lockdown is going to be slapped back down upon us - a local food factory has seen an outbreak of "that damn virus" - I've been trying to get myself lively and productive at work and being a bit of an ideas factory to catch up for all the time we've lost.

I'm also trying to get back into other forms of writing other than this nature blog. My way of inspiring myself I've been reading about Wild Billy Childish, the Medway Poet, the inventor of the Stuckist art movement and a Musician of the British Empire.

Billy has been around since 1979, and is a former partner of artist Tracey Emin. He is absolutely prolific and has released around 100 albums and done enough paintings to cover the surface of the moon. Probably. I find people like him, steeped in words and paint, absolutely fascinating.

In actuality, I find his music nearly unlistenable and am not very keen on his paintings. But it is the idea of living a life of nothing but creativity that inspires. He spent 17 years on the dole while doing his thing at one point.

So, after I read, I felt full of drive and zest, ready to sit in front of this keyboard and create Create CREATE.

And of course, it hasn't happened. I went for a run on a very warm evening, and was too tired to do anything other than lie on the sofa.

The literary world cries into its tea.
