Pushing on

Two days in a row where the writing has not gone well. My fingers are refusing to fly. Even on a simple blog post I can’t seem to get the words out. And when I close my eyes and try to head into a plotting state (or wash dishes or walk the dog or do anything of those mindless activities where my brain gets busy), my brain refuses to get down to business. It goes in circles on any topic but the story.


And yet, I’ve still gotten just over 1K words so that’s something. Nine months ago, it would have meant that I was having two good days. Perspective is always nice.

I’m going to do a writing sprint for the next ten minutes. See if I can push these fingers into motion one way or another.

  1. I think some days it’s just really hard. But the great thing about pushing on is that eventually it kicks in again and you’re there waiting for it. Today’s 1K words are done and I’m probably not going to stop. 🙂
