You guys remember back when I did that post on writer’s block? How it didn’t exist, was simply a psychological fallacy, and was just generally an excuse to not write?Well…let me just say…I’m a total hypocrite as of now.
I have discovered that particular horror for myself. The past couple of months I’ve actually had serious trouble writing anything, let alone the novel sitting in my documents folder. Journaling, RPing, short stories, *cough* blogging–all of it has been surprisingly difficult. I would have a post or a story planned out in my head, but when I finally found time to sit down and write it, I would suddenly be too tired or too blank or have a headache or ANYTHING THAT WOULD SUFFICE AS AN EXCUSE NOT TO WRITE! It’s pretty pathetic, really, and that phenomenon is only now starting to fade. After losing a good three months of writing time on a novel I was supposed to have finished half a year ago. Oh, well. Lesson learned (I hope). Always have a plan. And always stick to the plan.
Though I wouldn’t put it past me to do it all over again if I get distracted, which is a fairly common–OOOH! DOCTOR WHO!!!!
