slowed down writing
What the thing is, I am kind of at a slowdown. An annoying slowdown. That kind of thing would not have bothered me a while ago, but now I am frustrated by it. (Maybe they should call it “writer’s frustration.”)
What it is that’s bugging me is that I have been really productive for several months. I got this idea that I wanted to write one story a week. Well, it has been maybe 18 weeks or so (I could check for the precise number, but I don’t want to.). Some were all right and some sucked, but they existed. A couple times I didn’t finish when I wanted to, there was a little ending that oozed over to the next week.
But the past couple weeks I haven’t finished even one. I should have started one Monday (it still is, for me anyway), but the last two are still in limbo. Last week’s is all right, can be finished all right if I just did it. But the week before— I kind of spun it in such a way that made it complicated to finish. That may have been where and why this thing started.
Part of it may also be lock of enthusiasm. I’m just not into it right now. Maybe that’s the source of the so called “writer’s block”— you just don’t want to do it anymore. Well, at least for that time. It just holds no interest in it for now. The scary thing is that you never know when it will end— or if it will. Anyway, I have to figure out how to stop this before it takes over…
(Oh, and look at all I wrote here…what is really going on here?)
