1. a groove or furrow in a soft road, caused by wheels
2. any deep mark, hole, or groove
3. a narrow or predictable way of life, set of attitudes, etc.; dreary or undeviating routine (esp in the phrase in a rut)
I'm thinking that people are going to start to notice. Going to notice that I write a so-called crafty blog, but that for quite a while now, I haven't crafted. I'm good at making excuses; "I need a more organised space", "It's too hot", "I'm too tired", "I don't have enough time". But I don't think any of those are it. I think it's simply that I'm in a rut.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not short of inspiration. I'm not short of ideas. It just seems that every time I go to start to make something lately, something stops me.
So last night, I go out one of my neglected sketch pads and started to write, started to doodle, started to journal in a sense. It's time to claw my way out of this deep furrow I find myself in and start to bring my ideas to life.
Have you ever found yourself in a rut? Found anything that helped?
