I had to give myself a break, and even shelf a project for a bit to distance and detach myself from the dreaded burden that was weighing me down. It literally felt like I was dragging a couple hundred horses behind me who were galloping the other direction at the same time. Ugh! I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
One night, I had a cathartic event that helped me, even just a tiny bit, to dig myself out of my deep hole of writing despair. I decided to start plotting out an idea for a new project, which I have started working on. I thought that if I started with something fresh and new that I'd whip myself into shape. You know what? It worked. IT WORKED! Hallelujah and jump up and down and twirl in circles like a giddy little girl!
So what I'm saying here on this #ISWG Wednesday is:
- If you need to, take a break
- Shelf a project for a while to distance yourself from it, to breath again
- Work on a different project to get your writing blood boiling again
What are your tips to get you writing again? How have you overcome wanting to quit?
