I have been slacking in the book department for a few weeks now. I guess I have a form of writer’s block. The odd thing is the block is not one of words. I have story ideas floating around in the noggin. It is more a block about the physical activity. I cannot seem to actually make myself sit down and write. It is not just with the book. I am also struggling to make myself write blog posts too, though I seem to have a little more success with those.

Writer's blocks?

I don’t get it.

I want to write this book. I want to write, period. But every time I sit down to do it I avoid it like brussel sprouts. I simply don’t get it. I have not stalled completely. But I have slowed down. I started with a chapter every few days or so. Now I have been working on the same one for a couple of weeks.

I have a nickel here. Lucy, tell me what my problem is!

Anyhoo, for those who have an interest, I am now almost finished with the ninth chapter (a mighty long one compared to the rest) with about 31000 words squoze out.  I am tempted to maybe post another excerpt, if anyone would like another taste. That means you, my devoted five! Let me know and I will try to find a worthy snippet!

  1. It’s the weather I reckon….lazy, sunny days! Winter will stimulate the work ethic – along with huge mugs of hot beverage and hot snacks by the trolley-full. I can send you some fingerless gloves…..LOL!

    • I might by that if we were actually having sunny days! But I can picture it now. Me sitting in front of the computer blowing on my fingerless gloved hands with a foggy breath … trying to warm em enough to type. hahaha 😀

  2. Mmhmmm… well, well… one duzn’t want the snippet, you tosser… one wants all the 31K’s worth of words!!! 😀 hahaha… As for the ‘writing block’ of sorts, think your computer is located in a ‘no go zone’ is what i think… my suggestion would be to change your workstation around, clear up some clutter… there’s bound to be better energies in any and all other corners of the room, just shift it around for a start… 🙂 the atual material clutter around us have a tendency to disturb our inner energies too… but, that’s just my beliefs… (and perhaps a few other Feng Shui addicts)… doesn’t hurt to try tho… 😉 Meanwhile, sending good energies!!

    • If the setup is the issue I am screwed. Pretty much stuck with what I have. Granted there is clutter galore. But it is the same clutter that was there when I was writing hard and difficult to remove with anything short of a controlled hurricane! 😀

  3. Been away for a while (the whole jacked-up depression thing). Anyway, you can make the five a 6 again. Ha..ha..
    I’ve been battling through what you are. I could blame it on a multitude of things going on with me right now, but whatever the cause, the end result is that I can’t get anything down because there are ‘too many’ ideas in the noggin and I frankly don’t know where to start. Perhaps it’s the little touch of OCD I have, but I like things organized and tidy, including my thoughts, and when they’re not my wires get fried easily. Maybe that’s all it is; you’re body is responding as if it were physically overwhelmed due to the traffic in your head.
