I don't feel like writing. I'm busy. I'm overwhelmed. I'm tired. I got into an argument with a telemarketer today. I hurt my ankle at the gym. I drank too much wine last night and I'm horrendously dehydrated. There are a gazillion reasons why I don't feel like writing but thing is, the only thing that makes me feel better about not writing is...yep. You guessed it. Writing.
So I am faced with a conundrum. How do I feel better and get my writing mojo back when the last thing I feel like doing is writing?
You know the answer to that. Write. So that's what I'm doing. I'm writing this blog. I'm writing some freelance magazine articles. I'm writing some passive aggressive letters to my local council. And although I haven't yet go my romance writing mojo back yet (that would take a little more romance in my life than currently is, I'm sure) but I am enjoying writing.
The things I write don't take long. Ten minutes here, half an hour there. I get an immediate reaction from the readers of my words and it's enough to keep me writing and get me excited about putting words on a page.
So my advise to anyone who finds themselves in a writing funk is to shut the freak up and just write. Write a lengthy insta post, send some long-winded Christmas cards - damn text your ex if you have to!
But write! Write a little bit then a bit more then a bit more until a paragraph turns into a page and a page turns into a chapter and a chapter turns into a New York Bestseller.
Happy writing my lovelies!
PS Please don't text your ex, that part was a joke.
