I suffer from writers block the same as any other author. It drives me nuts. I know I have to finish up a novel and just can't make myself sit in the chair and do it.
I'm working on the Spell Box, book #4 in the Green Lady Inn series, and have been since last Fall.
My daughter left my grandson, Hayden, with me just now. She's gone shopping. I love my little bug but he talks my ear off. He's eight and want to know everything.
So back to my problem. Time is my enemy. There is just not enough of it. I get up in the morning with all the best of intentions. I sit down at the computer and my day just gets away from me. I answer emails, work with clients, update my webpage occasionally. do some marketing and always plan to work on my book before my husband comes home. Once he is home all the best laid plans go out the window.
I promised myself I would write on my book everyday this week. I was good yesterday and put down 1200 words, today not so good.
I think I need to move to a cabin in the woods or better yet a swanky hotel with room service.
If you have any suggestions on how to avoid writers block, please let me know.
I did get my new children's book started. It's being illustrated now and should be ready by my first event for the season. Labor day weekend I'll be at the Pioneer Days Festival in Englewood Florida. It's going to be in Festival Park. I've never done this one before so fingers crossed.
Please ask questions or leave comments. I'd love to hear from you.
