Writing

Battle Plan…?

July 1, 2012

First of all, I must apologize for the ongoing absence here on the blog. For all of you who have stuck around, thank you.

As many of you know, I have issues with writer’s block. I’m one of those writers who whole-heartedly believes in it and struggles to overcome it. Lately, I’ve been feeling the weight of writer’s block even more. For the past two months I’ve been working on a project that I not only have an outline for, but that has kept my excitement level at a nice high point. But I’m stuck. As excited as I am about it, I can’t seem to open the document and continue working. I have so many new ideas attacking me every day that I can’t focus. I’m too busy running after these sexy new ideas. And it stinks.

So, to remedy that I came up with a plan of combat. Or I thought I had. See, the plan was to take an official hiatus from writing and spend a year to regroup, organize, collect, and plan without doing any official writing. I never thought I’d be one of those writers who takes a few years to get their next project assembled, but here I am. Yet, I’m not. Not yet, at least. Because I don’t think I can bring myself to step away from writing. Then again, it’s not like I can’t work on short stories or something in the meantime.

Does anyone have any good ideas to reenergize? Any advice or ideas are welcome! 🙂

    Some of my best writing comes out on road trips. Long stretches of time while somebody else is driving, new scenery…it does wonders!
