St. Patrick’s Day Writing Update

Writing has been pretty far from my mind these days. I only got about 1,000 words written this past weekend, so I’m telling myself that I’ll get caught up when I have my “spring break” at the end of this month.

Part of my Lenten sacrifice involved giving up caffeine and chocolate (a cliché thing to give up, I know), which has been much harder than I thought it would be.* I’m also wondering if the lack of caffeine is contributing to my lack of zeal for writing, but I don’t really think so. A few years back, I gave up caffeine for more than a year, and it didn’t affect my writing much.

Anyway, so what I’m going to try to do this weekend is get back into writing. On Sunday night, I had a dream about one of my characters that gave me yet another idea** for how I might fix the plot problems with my current story, so that should give me something to write about. 🙂

Hope your writing is going well and that you haven’t run into writer’s block!

*On the plus side, I discovered that lemon tea is amazing and my new decaf beverage of choice.

**This particular character does not want to do what I want her to do. She has been resisting me for years now, and it’s starting to get really old!

  1. As I’ve been talking about on my blog, I’ve been outlining, and I’ve kind of stalled out. I’m really not an outliner. I think I need to start writing instead. Much more fun.

    “This particular character does not want to do what I want her to do. She has been resisting me for years now, and it’s starting to get really old!”

    Well, from her point of view, being told what to do all the time is probably getting really old, too. 🙂

  2. No writer’s block, just currently suffering from “where’s the time” block due to “let’s do everything that enters my head” syndrome. I really need to buckle down this week. Campnano’s coming and I really need to get myself back in the groove. Hope your faring better now than when you wrote this!
