These days I don’t get writer’s block. My problem is the opposite: I always have too much to say and can get scattered. My mind is full of a zillion ideas and many seem worthwhile to pursue. While I’m writing a story, often another nags at me until I have to stop and give that one some attention. This is the reason that after all these years I’ve only completed a few novels. There are a whole bunch more in various stages of drafts. Hell, it’s hard to even finish a 5,000 word short story when I could pop on the ‘press and pound out a 500 word post or three. 👻
Some of you may have noted that I have two serial stories in progress on this blog right now. I’m bored with both of them, though not blocked. I know exactly how I want them to continue and end. But it’s simply more fun to start new things. I’ve also lost my motivation to finish my WIPs for my Kindle bookshelf, which may mean my OCD has succumbed to ADHD. A battle of the disorders! Ooh, that could be a cool story! 🤣
On the extremely rare occasion that I feel I want to write but words fail to flow, I get away from the keyboard and immerse in a different form of creativity, such as baking or coloring or listening to music. The words always return. 🎶
