Season 6 of Mad Men started in the USA last Sunday – 7th April 2013.
It’s a great series, probably the best thing around at the moment, but this isn’t an advert for Mad Men.
What I’ve noticed is that the ad men spend a lot of time just sitting around, or throwing ideas around – There’s a lot of waiting going on. Eventually there comes the punch line, or the idea for an ad campaign. It’s work, but it’s a different kind of work that is maybe more inspiration than perspiration.
I’m currently trying to write a sermon for this coming Sunday. It’s just not there at the moment. Maybe it’s because I had some time off after Easter – and I’m just not back into the flow yet … I’m waiting for some inspiration.
I feel like the ad men in Mad Men – except that I don’t drink whiskey all the time I’m thinking.
I’m still working / waiting …
