It's been over a week now where I haven't written a thing and I can say with all honesty that it feel rotten, as though I'm lost.
Now I know that all I need to do is get typing but life keeps getting in the way, negative thoughts keep getting in the way- I keep getting in the way.
This is the best story I have ever written, the second book in the series of three and yet here I am blogging about not being able to write. Is this what they call writers block?
My friendly, fellow authors are pumping out the words due to the current challenge or just because they can which adds pressure to what I'm already applying to myself.
I know I am not the only author to experience this but when you're in that hole, you do feel like you are the only one. So I'm writing this blog to shout out to those who are and have been through this to tell you you're NOT alone.
Right after this blog my plan is to not check my emails, not facebook or twitter but to read my last page of my MS and let my fingers tap away and hope that letting go of the pressure and life's distractions I will be sucked back into the overwhelming desire to write.
I'm crossing my fingers, ah no I'm not, I need them to write. But I am hoping and you know what it would be really great to see some comments on whether you have or are experiencing this and what you did to overcome it. Or possibly any advice you have would be appreciated.
Thank you all and happy reading and writing.
