I Need a New Creative Outlet

I used to be a fairly creative person. I was always either writing (for myself), drawing, attempting some form of music, refinishing some piece of furniture - always with a project on the go. Now it seems as though I don't have time for anything.

It's about me letting myself get stifled.

I let myself get this way - into this routine of being a mommy, laundry service, wife, editor, and freelance writer - and now that's all I do.

I need to be creative! I need to take a class! I need to get back into photography! I need to do something to get my creative mind flowing again! Yi!

It's making me mental...or rather, it's making me extremely un-mental. At least as far as the right side of my brain goes.
