Well Run Dry

I have not had the best experience with my writing lately. I have spent so much time doing rewrites, critiques and editing on my last novel that I feel as if I have forgotten how to write! Isn't that a shame?

To make it worse, my laptop's motherboard decided to stop working on me. I am so out of sorts I am not sure what I can do!

I put my mind on vacation by reading a full blown 500 paged novel, thinking that would do the trick. Nothing. Maybe another book and another until I feel my creativity creeping up on me?

What do you do when you encounter the writing blues?


  1. How frustrating! My motherboard died a few months ago and we can't afford to fix the problem. I'm lost without my favorite tool. Out of sorts describes my mood too.

    As for writing, when I forget how to write, I have to stop trying too hard. I'll often do something else creative - sewing, needlework, scrapbooking. This seems to get the creative juices flowing and soon I have the itch to write again.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing that with me! I feel so good that I am in good company! If only you lived close by we can get together and sew or scrapbook and discuss our motherboard blues!

  3. Awesome job on your blog! You are keeping it up so much better than I do mine and you've got some good stuff on here. :)
