I found a new addiction—Podcasts! I know I'm a little late to the party on this, that's how it goes with me and technology sometimes... The past week and a half I have had several people tell me to listen to a Podcast called Serial. From the very beginning I was hooked and couldn't stop listening to it—You won't get any spoilers from me, but I already have a theory on the determination of the situation dealt with in this story!
If you haven't listened to this podcast yet or any Podcast for that matter—you should.
I share this with you because to be honest, for the past year I haven't really done anything to stimulate my creative self—no book reading, writing, or things like Podcasts. Really, I've been stewing in my own thoughts and getting lost in the quagmire of recovering from three massive heart attacks and the life change that comes with all that. This adventure of writing a book is forcing me to snap out of it and jump-start the creativity buried deep inside of me. Reading books, writing every day, and listening to Podcasts or something similar helps to crystalize thinking and gets the creative juices flowing.
So if you haven't listen to any Podcasts do it now! BTW—I made it a goal to write 800-1000 words a day and I have for two out of the last three days—more on this goal later in a blog post.
Keep telling your story,
