Remember me? The disciplined one? I don’t know what’s happened to me. I wrote a short story the first two days of summer vacation and since then….less than 20,000 words! I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo, even knowing I’d be going on 2 trips, and I just can’t focus. The story hasn’t pulled me in, and I’ve gone days–DAYS–without working on it. This is a story I’ve had plotted for over a year but didn’t have time to write. I’m wondering should I set it aside and work on a novella or something, but…that seems like quitting even if I intend to get back to it. And I need another book done. I don’t have anything coming out.
I’m trying to figure out what I’ve done this past year–2 Bluestone novels and 4 novellas. Not terrific, considering my job has become significantly less stressful this year.
I did a lot of sewing last year and still managed to write. I don’t know why I’m having trouble this year.
Who wants to give me a kick in the pants?
And how could I NOT be inspired?
