Hello, lovely peeps, I’m back this week. Let me start with a big thank you to the lovely Michelle Roth who stepped into the breach for me last week. I tell you, my head so was not in the right place to blog.
I’m still not convinced it’s in the right place at all…
It is no secret that, so far, November has been an incredibly tough month for us a family. Losing one pet is bad enough, losing two within a week of each other… well there are no words, really.
Just a great big empty hole in our hearts and home where our two lovely kittens ought to be. So, yeah, writing being the creative art it is…it just hasn’t been happening. What is perhaps more worrying is that I’ve not had the inclination to write, either. Unheard of for me. On the odd occasion that my muse packs her bag, and heads off to sunny climates, I get twitchy. And moody as a moody person with severe PMS and grumpy old woman syndrome all rolled into one. 😉
Hubby will usually tell me, “For goodness sakes, woman, write. Anything, I don’t care what. I just want my wife back.”
As he hasn’t chained me to the keyboard yet, I can only assume that I’m not like that this time, which brings me neatly back to needing to sort my head out.
I’ve just had edits for my upcoming release with Evernight, and it took every ounce of self-control I had to make me do them. It’s beyond frustrating really, this not being able to get my head into the game.
So, what do you do?
Well, I usually take time out, read, and wait for my muse to come back. Problem is, she hasn’t really left. She is sitting right there in the corner with me, rocking and feeling sorry for herself.
My usual wait it out is not going to work. So, nicking one of Raven’s expressions… Time to pull up my big girl pants and just start writing. So, as of tomorrow, I’ll be tapping away at the keyboard, and see what happens.
After all, if the great Mark Twain says it, it must be true 🙂
That’s all from me today, folks. It’s really just a reminder to us all to keep on writing. And if you’re struggling with that concept, for whatever reason, hold onto the thought that a few words are better than none.
Do stay naughty, folks.
