I think it’s time for an intervention. I’m working on three weeks with little to no motivation, and even now, I’m wasting a blog post talking about my writer’s block instead of working on my books.
Usually, lists help, but even now they aren’t doing it for me. For the past week, I have had this list by my computer to prompt me for writing.
- The Savrith Tree
- Principles of Eating Green
- Eco-Wellness for Blog
- Conservation Fitness 30 Day Challenge
- Articles for Submission
- Why Zoos Matter
- The Cynics Guide to the Pacific Northwest
- Fitness, Nutrition, and Conservation articles for magazines and guest blogging
- Queries and Book Proposals
Okay, granted, I worked on the Savrith Tree the other day and finished a beautiful poem that I’m super proud of (poetry is HARD). But everything else? C’mon, it’s not like I don’t have the information. Just freaking write!
I think I need another 30 day writing challenge. I’m pretty sure I need a writing challenge.
This is also a call for help. A few days ago, I literally stopped writing mid-sentence because I hit my minimum word count. I haven’t gone to writing groups, but things are still a little crazy with Chris’ doctor appointments and commitments I have for myself.
I thought after finishing my first book, I’d be moved to start writing again. I finished my second book, only after brushing it off and brushing it off and realizing I had to finish it pronto or risk not taking it to AAZK with me. But the muse is alluding me now.
