I can't write! AH! I don't know what's going on. I wrote two books. Yes ... two. I finished the second one about two weeks ago. I went through it on a first re-write and then called it done. I don't feel there is anything more I can do to it. Well ... I felt that way. Now, as I sit here with a blank word document open before me to work on another idea I have ... I feel like maybe there is more to be done to the second one.
But, I shouldn't. I loved it very much when I was finished and I don't want anything to jade me from it right now. I need to have it bound like the other one so it can sit on my shelf next to it.
I haven't heard back from all the agents. The ones I have heard from politely rejected me. But, it's a rejection nonetheless. This is a rite of passage for writers. Everyone gets turned down. So, I'm really working on NOT being discouraged by all of this. There's still a BUNCH of queries out there.
But now, as I eagerly sit before the computer to start an idea I feel pretty strongly about ... I can't write anything.
Writer's block? Perhaps. I've been working a lot, not getting too much sleep and ... I don't know, maybe my brain needs a rest? Do writers take time off between projects?
Inspiration is running rampant in my brain but I can't seem to form the words right and put them on paper.
I'm blocked. Blocked like a clogged drain.
What could I use as Drain-O for my brain?
Maybe I should just take a few days off ... read, scroll Pinterest, scribble down ideas. It will come back to me eventually.
