What do you do when your mind doesn’t want to write anymore? The muse is gone. I can figure out a scene in my head but when I sit down to write, it is gone and I stare at a blank screen. I have had a little success at typing additional paragraphs in my “new idea” books, but I just can’t do it for the western I am currently working on.
I have been reading instead of writing. All good mysteries. It has been a pleasant distraction but that doesn’t help my problem. I know I am dipressed but it goes further than that. I’m always depressed in the winter time. SADD.
I think my brain needs a jolt. I need someone to talk to someone face to face. I spend too much time alone. I need to reach out and “touch” someone. I did talk to my older sister last week and my younger sister stopped by on her way back to New York, but she didn’t stay long because she wanted to get home before dark. She lives back in the boonies from Andover.
Well, I’ve spent too much time complaining. Maybe I try writing just a little. There’s not much on TV that I want to watch.
I’m hoping that writing this post will help me to get back into the swing of things. I need to get back to writing.
