IWSG: When the Well Runs Dry

IWSG: a place where writers and friends share woes or hugs.
Welcome to mine!

The past month or so I've been finding motivation for writing difficult--this includes blogging!

I remember when I hit a wall over ten years ago while writing one of my books. It lasted a good few weeks! I had decided to help other writers out by critiquing, touting for them, encouraging them on their various platforms, including their blogs.

I also read books that involved my genre along with watching movies until one day, I felt inspired again.

This time, I've only helped one writer with copyediting, but I haven't felt the desire to read or watch movies in the same genre as my current work in progress. I was hoping I would feel inspired but it's been so difficult! I think I might be depressed.

What do you do when your writing well runs dry?

Don't forget!
May 4th was the IWSG's latest anthology, Dark Matter: Artificial!

The stories are surprising and intriguing. What a wonderful collection!

My story, Resurgence: Living in a peaceful community, Damarin encounters a trail of inexplicable anomalies and is afraid to reveal his concerns for fear of retribution, until he follows an unsuspecting neighbor through a secret portal.
