I think this has been my exact problem these past several months. To be reliable to my own writing muse. Ever since last July when Mari’s 5 year mark came and went, I’ve had a hard time trying to motivate myself to do any kind of writing. Whether it was writing something for Mari’s website or this one, writing something for her book, or just writing for my fiction book, I just couldn’t find the motivation.
I kept being told by others that even if I only write a sentence a day I needed to write something. Yet, I didn’t listen to the very important advice given. It’s like a force field remained around my writing muse keeping me away from it.
Then one day I finally decided to take a word a day and write about it. I went searching for something like this but couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. So I found the next best thing. A book with 365 phrases I could use to break through the force field. It feels good to be back at writing on a more regular basis, if only I could change the ‘more regular’ to ‘regular.’
I finally got my daughter’s book edited and sent to the professional editor, who also happens to be my friend. Things are moving in the right direction and I’m feeling good.
