Excuse me, have you seen a wagon full of writers pass by this way? I seem to have lost my place on it.
For the past two weeks I’ve done about zero on my novel. Perhaps only a few paragraphs at most. I had turned to working on the city map to clear my brain. Hoping that I just needed a bit of time to recharge. But that didn’t do much.
Not wanting to lose my creative energy I put my mind on the “Grimm” spec script and started piddling around with that. But like my novel, haven’t done any real work on it. Just a few ideas jotted down with a very basic idea of what I want to do with it.
My wife keeps telling me that I need to sit down and write something and power through it. She’s absolutely right. And it is what I have done in the past. But man the motivation isn’t there in the slightest. Instead, I’ve found myself playing games like “Legend of Grimrock” and “Tribes: Ascend.”
Which, incidentally, are both super awesome.
It is a strange place to be right now. Because its not like I don’t know what I have to do. I’ve heard and even said the many platitudes and words of encouragement needed to push on and get to writing. But man, the act is harder than the saying. Which I’m sure we are all aware of at this point.
As with all things, it will pass and I’ll be able to move on. The next chapters are at the tips of my fingers. I only need to put my pen to paper and get to gettin’. Right? Write.
