So I had all these plans for writing.
I wrote achievable writing goals, targets for editing, set up beta reading schedules. I was determined. And, for the most part, I was making progress. Then, there was a restructure at work. My role changed, and I returned to full-time employment.
I had December off and planned to get a lot of writing done. I stressed about going back to work and not having time to write, that I disabled myself from writing. It’s like fretting about your sexual performance to the point where you can’t perform. I couldn’t write.
Not one for wasting time, I figured if I couldn’t write, I’d edit, and do some reading, and hopefully, one or both of those will inspire me to write. Except, I was still highly stressed. I’d write a few paragraphs, then my ADHD would kick in, and that would be it.
I went back to work three weeks ago, fulltime, and I’ve not written anything since. By the time I get home from work, I don’t have the patience or focus on writing currently, so I’m stalled completely. Hopefully, this will pass soon.
On a positive note. I’d made myself the goal of finishing Holmes by the end of 2017. I managed this. I was still up writing the Epilogue as the New Year rolled in, but I finished Holmes, and thus, the Hotel Series. I’ve been posting the third book on Radish Fiction, so you can check it out if you are interested.
