April 4 question – When your writing life is a bit cloudy or filled with rain, what do you do to dig down and keep on writing?


The Struggle is Real

I have a really hard time focusing on writing when either my writing life or my non-writing life is cloudy or filled with rain. Lately, my real life has been just that, and I’ve not written a damn thing, aside from this blog, since December. I guess I’m not very good at managing my emotions, and I let them affect my creativity. And it kinda sucks. I’ve definitely THOUGHT about writing, but when it comes down to it? I can’t get myself going. I guess I’m digging so deep on so many other things, I have nothing left to dig deep on writing.

If you have any suggestions for inspiration and digging deep and what you do through this difficult writing and non-writing times, I’d love to hear about them!!

I wish the blog could be longer this week, but I’m on Spring Break! It’s rest time, but, of course, I wanted to chime in on the #IWSG blog post!

Thanks for dropping by!
