I need to whinge and whine and feel sorry for myself. Feel free to walk on by. I would.
*sigh* I feel like I'm battering my head against a wall of frustration and misery, which is growing higher and higher as the months goes by. I know why I've got writer's block, I just can't seem to get over it. I wish I could explain but I won't. I've never been keen on my personal issues over the net. Before you ask, I have the ideas, I don't need more plot bunnies, but between my brain and the screen there is nothing - zip, nada, the little fishes are swimming around in circles.
The fact is I'm a writer. My royalties pay my bills. If I don't write at a certain pace I cannot pay my bills, my kids don't eat and I get to be a bad, bad mother.
People have been very keen to give advice, and let's face it, most writers have suffered writer's block. We all have our strategies for dealing with the cold-hearted menace. My favourite is the 20 minutes a day strategy. I sit and write for 20 minutes whether the output is crap or gold. I keep writing every day, be it 10 words, 500 or 2000.
Aha! You haven't really got writer's block then! Yes, I have, because the 10 word days outweigh the 2000 words days by twenty to one, and the output is more crap than gold. Every plan I've got is on hold until I have a more regular output.
I tend to write one story at a time, publish or submit it and then write the next one. Now I have several started, none of them near completion, and they are clogging up my mind. I just want to finish one story and type The End.
So that is my moan. I have writer's block and I feel sorry for myself. *sigh*
