Today I have a major case of writer’s blah. It’s not writer’s block, it is just a ginormous case of “meh”. Yesterday, I ditched my freewrite exercise which probably was a terrible idea, but I was irritable, cranky and went to bed instead. I thought that would be the end, but it wasn’t. Had a terrible sleep and now am faced with an overcast day (which actually makes me a bit relieved in some ways) and sleepy eyelids.
So here’s what my writer’s blah feels like to me. I have ideas, lots of ideas that I could write down. I have no time whatsoever to do it, or to dedicate to flushing out my characters. This makes me cranky, so I try to read instead. I keep getting interrupted while trying to finish Eon which makes me even more cranky, since I am quickly approaching the end of the book and stuff is really starting to get good.
I guess what it boils down to for me, is that crankiness is the worst thing for my productivity. It isn’t that my ideas are gone, it is that I don’t feel that I can write. Emotionally, my writing would suck. I’m guessing all my characters would be either mean, or victims. What I really need is time to myself, without interruptions. It does help me to know that a few people are apparently having similar feelings this week. You can check out their awesome posts by clicking the links below:
Yeah, obviously not alone here. Sorry about the completely uninspiring post. Maybe I’ll try to work on the Chronicles of Jane Windall because that usually picks me up out of a funk. ~Sigh~ I just have to work up to doing that. I have no coffee, no chocolate, left my music at home and forgot my sequel to Eon. >.< Meh. At least I have a cherry amp. Watch out Friday…I may wake up sometime before 10pm, and then you will pay for my case of writer’s blah!
