Who doesn't love a flat ass??


This may sound completely retarded and may counteract past posts, but when I get on a tangent there's no stopping the new wonder woman of blogging.

Do you ever get a creative overload? Like a short circuit (maybe like the movie) that just keeps overloading on yummy batteries? That's how I've been feeling lately. I try to do something creative everyday I have off from working a "real" job so that I keep plugging forward with my future of not having a "real" job. Recording, sewing, drawing and now writing because of this damn thing (because for some reason I feel the need to write nonsense for the 3 people who read this thing). But tonight... No way. I can't do it. I think I should do this or maybe that, but all I do is sit on my ass. My ass is literally becoming flat. Believe me it's very sexy. So on my fat ass I sit - each hour passing while I count down the half hours before I have to get ready for bed.

So it that even possible? (not that my ass is getting flat/fat or that I count down the hours in half hours) But that my creative juices have run out? That's a fucking scary thought. What happens when it's my job to be creative and I think that writing in my lame blog will solve all of my problems? I guess I'm up shit's creek. (That would be the nastiest creek ever, ewwww.)

So is this what all "creative" (and yes - I'm using tons of "" and ( ) - deal with it bitch!!! Haha...) types have to deal with? If so I might just decide to get a job sitting on my ass all day answering phones. Oh wait - that's what I do already. Shit. Wait - Let me, at least, get my life vest for the ride....

Loverly,
Erica

creative juices come and go. I like to talk a walk with my dog Herbie to get my creative juices flowing. I find that it release endorphins which in turn cause me to be a much happier blogger!

Erica Putis said...

When I take walks with my pup he gets me aggravated because he barks at squirrels and homeless people.

QofD said...

So write about squirrels and homeless people! I find it's easier to be creative if I relax. So relax. It will come to you. When it does, write like hell.

...and you never know. Sometimes the things that seem mundane to you can be riveting to someone else.

Travis said...

I often find myself wondering if eventually i will hit the bottom of the proverbial well. And usually it's around that time that I come up with ideas.

UNfortunately it falls in the same platitude as love ' if you stop looking for it, it wll come'


yeah, i hate that fucking answer too but it really does happen

Erica Putis said...

QofD: Done!! My next song is going to be about squirrels and the homeless.. Haha... And writing in here often makes me question what would be entertaining or just plain boring. I don't want to be boring, ya know???

Travis: I know that "love" statement also and have experienced it but sometimes my mind takes over when I'm trying to be creative... Damn mind!! Haha...

Gregg O'Connell said...

with blogging comes great responsibility. write wisely my dear.

Erica Putis said...

You also need to write more wisely, oh, Talk-about-balls-all-the-time-GSO...When you find your way, I will follow with strong faith.

QofD said...

Erica, you beat me to it. I was just about to ask Master GSO (aka Yoda, aka Balls-o-Plenty) what the hell he was talking about.

James Burnett said...

Found your blog through QofD. Funny as hell.

And that picture of K. Holmes? Disturbingly flat ass. So flat it's almost concave, like the inside of a spoon.

Anyway, you won't have any worries about creative juices drying up on the blog if you just follow Q's advice and write about what you see.

I swear, since I moved to Miami a year ago I have had a bottomless well of stuff to blog about, 'cause people here are nuts...or frauds, posing as rich so they stand out in night clubs, or dangerously bad drivers who sometimes forget that this isn't the old country where driving on the other side of the road is the standard.

Just look around in "average" places and you'll never lack for something to blog about.

James Burnett said...

I have to add though, don't feel bad about the occasional drought. It happens. I also write in my day job, and every few months I hit a wall and can't seem to write anything well. Usually then I spend about a week not writing. I just grab a notebook and go hang out - in the park, coffee shop, mall, beach, etc., and let it come flowing back to me at its own pace.

Erica Putis said...

QofD: Gregg loves talking out of his ass. It's the thing he is most talented at.

James: Thanks, I'm glad you like my bolg and Katie's flat bum. :) We definatly have our share of fakes here too being that it's Southern Cali and all. Maybe I should write about a girl who moves to CA to become the next big star... Oh - wait... I think that's been done before. Haha... Really though, thanks for the advice!!

NewfiesWoman said...

um, not a creative bone in me body...me reads blogs hopin to be able to get creative but so far hell aint frooze over so me dont see me learnin anythign from what me reads....

BUT: QofD an the others has given good advice...Me may not be creative an may type funny to people but me knows good advice when me reads it... Me also knows good blogs when me reads them...Yers is good...

Erica Putis said...

NewfiesWoman: Thanks for the compliment! I'm sure you must be creative and have stuff to say if you have your own blog... :)

imdougandirule said...

Yeah, creative juices are key. We all faqll into lulls sometimes. That's when you have to look for inspiration in places you haven't yet before. That's wwhen things can become interesting.

Fun blog, I just stumbled upon it clicking "Next blog."

Erica Putis said...

imdougandirule: Love your name... Very funny. Thanks for reading my bolg and that advice is quite sound. I'm starting to look at things in a different way more and more each day.

QofD said...

I would have to say that I concur with James on the bad drivers in Miami. The one time I travelled to Florida I was regularly inspired to whack my head into the dashboard of my rented car because of the atrocious drivers. I had never been so frustrated behind the wheel in my life.

Wait. I think there's a blog post in there.

Erica Putis said...

Wow - Miami drivers are worse than CA drivers??? Crazy. I'll make sure I drive my Hummer if I ever go to Miami so no one messes with me...

QofD said...

Erica, I'm not sure if I would say Miami drivers are worse than CA drivers, but they are bad on a different level. CA drivers are mean spirited, self-centered and way too fast. My sole experience in Miami and West Palm Beach was that they were more or less just oblivious.

Just one woman's opinion, and probably not worth very much. Ha!

Erica Putis said...

Maybe it's all of the old people that move down there... I know my grandfather lives in Florida and should not be driving... I hope he didn't bring his car down there!
