I have a horrible case of "Ad Writers Block". Yep, that's right, I have lost my inspiration.
It's a terrible and debilitating situation for someone who loves to write. It's been more than a month since my last ad.
Over the past several weeks, I have had ideas such as "Melissa's Ho Down Show Down", this idea came to me after being knocked to the ground by my dog. Laying outside, flat on my back, staring to the sky, I thought... Ho Down!" Unfortunately, the words to go with the idea, never developed.
Another day, while searching for the key to my in-call, I said to myself where is that "Ho-Key"??? without my "Ho-key, there will be no Poke-y"! Ha-ha. That could have become a cute idea for an ad, maybe...
So, last week I paid a visit to my in-call to pick-up laundry, yes, only to pick up laundry..... and noticed the water had evaporated about two inches out of the toilet! I knew then I had to do something fast!
Today, I was determined to write an ad. So, here I sit with a blank white screen, cursor blinking, blinking, blinking. Words, Creativity, Inspiration, where are you! Several weeks ago, my cartoon ad had been posted on the General Board. A poster added to the thread saying basically that creativity means nothing, the only thing that matters is looks, price, service level and consistency. Everything else means nothing. Could that be true? Whatever is a lonely girl to do?
