It’s the internet, it distracts me. I sit down at the computer full of good intentions “I will create!” I exclaim, and almost straight away I’m looking at BBC news, or even worse bloglines, and then the whole evening is wasted. It probably says more about my flighty brain and current state of mind more than anything else, But I do feel terribly sad if I get to the end of the night and I haven’t done anything constructive. So here I sit, blank computer screen before me, trying really really hard to think of something to do, after all I’m a programmer the whole computer is full of possibilities.

I took the decision a while back that this creativity lark would only work if I did things I was interested in, but that has limited my options somewhat. Maybe now would be a good time to step away from the computer and maybe have a nice cup of tea, all the best ideas happen over a cup of tea (so I’m told).
