Not surprising that I’m going through yet another one of these spells of what I like to call “writer’s slump.” Not exactly like writer’s block, just the fact that the motivation is getting hard to find. Hence the name.
Perhaps it’s because the past week has been a bit on the crazy side. First, there was the sudden death of a beloved family pet.
Then came traveling a total of 6 hours to Cleveland and back to Dayton between Friday evening and Sunday afternoon (not something I complain about–it’s nice to see my family).
Of course there was the great celebrating of a first anniversary yesterday.
And I can’t forget the myriad of new and often confusing responsibilities I’ve been given at work.
I must admit through all of this, the creative juices have stagnated
It’s hard to keep it flowing when I’m just so busy all the time! I know–it’s not a valid excuse. A true writer would keep going regardless. Perhaps I’m not a true writer in that sense. I find it very hard to keep writing when so much is going on…I try but often with less than stellar results.
Still, what’s the use of complaining about it? It really gets me no where I just need to try harder.
I need to make every month like NaNo…it’s just hard for me to get into that mindset.
