I have had a few slumps since I started writing again, but usually they were countered with good ideas or simply being busy. This time, I have no excuses; I just simply cannot seem to find the words or the stories. It has been ten days since I have written more than a few sentences. Quite frankly, it’s getting exhausting.
Maybe there isn’t enough conflict in my life right now. Not enough bitterness and anger to work with. I always write better when I am busy and having to fit it in short bursts. Right now I have entirely too much time to sit and stare at that damned blinking cursor.
A short story acceptance would be good too, random editors who have my work, I’m looking at you! A small victory right now would get me motivated again, or at least thinking of new stories. Even writing a 200 word blog post is painful right now.
If you will all excuse me, I’m going to go on a five episode binge of Breaking Bad until something comes to me. That show is excellent by the way; I would recommend it to anyone reading this blog. Maybe the death professor has something for me.
