Anyone Else? Anyone?


Am I the only one who goes through phases?  One minute you can’t seem to get all of the ideas out of your brain fast enough and the next, you’re staring at the screen, drooling on yourself?  It’s not “writer’s block” per se, just kind of a glitch in the ol’ motherboard.

My progress has always been controlled by whether or not my creativity switch is working properly.  If you haven’t guessed, I’m at a total loss as to what I should blog about today.  I’ve been cruising around reading everyone else’s blogs trying to find some iota of inspiration (not that my fellow bloggers aren’t inspiring) yet my brain is stuck on “Nah, not feelin’ it today” mode.

It’s more of a commenting kind of day – which works, since most days I hardly have time to put up my own post, let alone view others – and I end up missing some really great stuff.  I’m still working on my Character Bio’s, but this has also hampered the forward movement of the story, itself.  Doing bios isn’t writing the book – or in this case – successfully merging two different storylines into one big Bestseller! (Hey, I’m optimistic!)

Writing is bad enough, but my artwork is also suffering.  I haven’t switched my background in weeks and I think the villagers are starting to sharpen their pitchforks.

*Big sigh, lifts coffee cup* Here’s hoping tomorrow brings about a little more creativity than I’m getting today.  Or at least some daily prompts that I can work with.

  1. Looking forward to the best seller, but if you don’t change your background image soon I’ll have to give it a miss…. Haha 🙂


    1. Ha! Thanks for the incentive, I’ll make sure to get that done asap, then! 🙂


      1. Oh please do. Hahaha 🙂


  2. Nope… it can happen to anyone. It does get better, although sometimes you have to write whether the muse is around or not.


    1. Thanks, Vic, sometimes it feels like it might be my own little quirk, but I know you’re right. Do me favor, slap that muse if you see her out gallivanting around? 🙂


      1. I have written a little on the subject in my “fiction” category – Revision Blues, Let me get into your head. Pretty Please and my solution came with In the Actor’s Studio. If you’re looking for ways to break out of the block, maybe you’ll find something there to help.
        Alternatively, I could slap that muse silly and ask her to go back where she belongs 😉
