I haven't been writing. I wish I had a good excuse for why I haven't. It would make my hiatus sound less lame. But not writing is nothing more than...LAME.
So, tomorrow after work I'm going to sit my little procrastinating keister in a chair along with my journal and write something (I'm not going to use my computer. After work tomorrow I will have been parked in front of a computer for 40 hours and can't stand to look at an LCD display for another moment). What am I going to write? Honestly, I have no idea. But, I'm going to write something.
I'm guessing I wouldn't be far from right if I made the assumption that many of you writers have been through something like this with your writing. Even the non-writers out there have "fallen out of love" with a hobby and taken a vacation from something you adore. Sometimes it's necessary, else you risk permanent burnout.
Now that I'm back from my sabbatical from writing, I've got to get the ball rolling again...
Here's the plan:
1. Set a timer for 15 min.
2. Write about something random till the timer goes off.
3. Now that I've broken the writing seal, I'll filter through my WIPs
4. Choose a WIP that speaks to me.
5. Start cranking out the word count.
So how do you get yourself out of an no-writing rut?
