The two more dreaded words in an author’s world are writer’s block, or otherwise known as when our imaginary friends stop talking to us. I’ve been pretty fortunate lately. Even on days when I really didn’t feel like writing, I could without too much trouble and once I got into the groove of things, it all turned out pretty well. Alas, I should have known that could not always be so easy. The WB monster has finally caught up with me.
Yesterday I could not for the life of me even get a single….I repeat single word out. I rewrote a paragraph four times, often stumbling after two sentences. I had to face the realization that yesterday was not going to be a writing day. But in order to not feel like an utter failure, I managed to pound out a small scene. Hey at least it was something. With my work abandoned what was I to do with the rest of my day? I must remind you, that I’m on summer break so I have then entire day to do whatever I wish….
I’m not ashamed to confess that I wandered around my house for probably a good ten minutes until I figured out what to do. In case you didn’t know, in addition to writing, I also like to do crafts and whatnot. But most of my projects tend to fall by the wayside. I stared at the fabric my aunt bought for me. When she saw it, she thought of me. I had intended to turn it into a couple of throw pillows. I had even gotten fluff for it. Well since I wasn’t writing, then I guess I would sew. The pillows turned out pretty cute, although I’m not completely finished yet. I’m still debating on whether or not to add a button in the middle. But cute either way.
Well that led to one craft after another. I did get caught up on a couple of project, so I guess that writer’s block can be ok…..sometimes.
