I forgot how to write

I’m sitting down to write something and I think I forgot how to do that. My mind is whizzing, but sitting down to the keyboard and actually picking a project is a chore. I used to be able to crank out material at a prodigious rate and while I think I know what happened, why that changed, that doesn’t excuse it. I need to get over it and just get the job done.

With that in mind, I’m sitting down today to start work on a fantasy adventure story which is in need of a title. This is a new piece. I had thought about going back and picking up the thread of other pieces I’d started some time ago, but I think a fresh start on something new is what I actually need at the moment. By putting it here, in the open, I’m hoping to shame myself into working on it on a daily basis. I can talk the talk, time to get back to walking the walk.

(and yes, I’ve shamelessly stolen the graphic – Thank you!)

  1. One weird way that helps me write more is to start something completely new. It often gets absorbed to the main thing that I write at the time, but it somehow kick starts the whole gig… Anyway, I’ll be wanting to read your new stuff, do share when you have it!

      That’s kinda what I was thinking as well and of course I’ll share! Half the fun of writing is sharing it around 🙂
