IWSG - Creative Shutdown

Today, I will keep my comments brief. I've been having some vision issues lately so writing has become difficult as of late. In addition to all this, I have been affected by the government shutdown, although, I suppose, not as much as I could've been.

I've still got a job and will continue to report to work as usually throughout the resolution of our governmental and budgeting woes. Unfortunately, I will be working without pay until further notice. But hey, at least I've still got a job, right?

Because of these things, my creativity has been smooshed. I'm hoping to keep driving on and use my forthcoming dire economic situation to kickstart my creative juices.

It is too bad our Congress and President could not (will not) call upon the benefit of personal economic hardship as a catalyst to get stuff done.

That's all I have to say about that.

  1. I cannot tell you how much that SUCKS. I think my creativity would be smooshed too. I hope it gets resolved soon!

  2. You can bet those congressmen responsible are still getting their paychecks!!!! Nothing can be done about gov't, but I send well wishes for the eye problem clearing soon.

    Take care JL.


  3. Sorry to hear about your eye problems. Would new glasses help? They did me.
