What the heck is a creative bottleneck? I didn’t invent the phrase, but it describes perfectly my current funk. It’s really a thing. While searching for official definitions, I came across the following interesting take on the word–it refers to production in business, but I equate it with what’s going on in my brain.
A bottleneck is a point of congestion in a production system (such as an assembly line or a computer network) that occurs when workloads arrive too quickly for the production process to handle. The inefficiencies brought about by the bottleneck often create delays and higher production costs. (Investopedia)
I’ve got complications and they aren’t the type to complain and moan about–they’re happy issues. I’ve had a lot of experiences over the last three months which have kept me active socially, physically, and geographically. They’ve been filled with time with friends and family and enjoying our full-time RV life. The quandary is so many memories have been made with so little time to actually sit and write about them. They are all trapped in the humongous fat-bottomed bottle of my mind fighting to get written about so they become real. After all, did it really happen if I don’t post a million pictures and write a blog entry about them? The problem is I’m totally discombobulated.
I’ll figure out how to regurgitate all the beautiful moments and begin one post at a time. I’ll even use Mike’s analogy about how to eat an elephant (and I won’t have to worry because I’m not a vegetarian.) If you’re curious about all the elephant stuff, read a very funny post about that subject here.
I apologize for the several posts to come because they won’t be in any logical order. It’s the RANDOM in the title of my blog, which is a testament to the intricate and overlapping labyrinth in my mind.
Does anyone else have creative bottlenecks? Am I the only one whose mind gets all clogged up and jumbles out of control? How in the world do you deal?
I think I’m gonna shake the bottle and see which memory bubbles up first.
