I would love to sit here and tell you that I never have a problem writing. No matter how much is going on or how I’m feeling I can still crank out the words.
I would love to tell you that, but I would be fibbing. Truth be told, there are times I don’t feel like writing. There are even times when I simply cannot force myself to write.
At the moment, I’m in one of those ruts where I am having a LOT of trouble getting myself to write. I have the best of intentions but I’m tired when I get home and it is just easier to sit down and veg out. I’ve really got to change that and soon. It has begun affecting my sleep (can’t get the feelings of guilt to go away and the ideas are really swirling).
I never quite know what causes this. Sometimes it is the weather (like now) and other times it is something I simply cannot put my finger on. I do know that when I have prepped myself for motivated writing (like NaNoWriMo) I can write regardless of all the outside factors.
Does that mean I’m not motivated? I don’t really have a good answer for that. I do know that I’ve got to get moving forward. I have a number of projects on the go/looming over me that need work. I cannot afford to let them sit for too long.
Do you ever get hit by this? How do you get past it? I would love to hear your suggestions cause I’m definitely having some trouble right now.
