Let's Be Honest...

Writing has been put on the back burner for me for a bit now. I did work on revisions of book two for a time after the move and it went well.


Meh. I feel like I have writer's block. But we all know what stress can do to you. As much as changes in lifestyle and all those other little bits and pieces that roll into one big ball of "I-don't-wanna!!!".

Funny thing is, I've worked through stress and writer's block before. But it seems like it always changes and becomes just that much harder to write through.

It adapts.

Which forces ME to adapt even more.

So I just continue watching all these new releases come from my writer friends and try not to let it get to me. I mean... I NEED. To. Write.

It's that simple. If I don't write, I go nuts. Okay... well, I AM nuts, it just makes it worse, that's all.

Seems like my blog theme so far has been: "Whine. Complain. Repeat." Maybe I'll just start posting up some of my flash fiction that I've been doing for writing prompts. I need to do something. You're all bored of my whiney-ness, I can feel it. Ha!

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving holiday!

And a huge congratulations to all who participated in NaNoWriMo! Like I posted on Twitter, doesn't matter if you reached the 50,000 word mark, the fact that you TRIED is good enough for me.

This would've been great for the IWSG tomorrow...
Mel, I've been in the same spot for a very long time. I'm finally working on a new outline, but the burn to write anything just hasn't been there. Didn't even thing I would again. So don't stress yourself.
