Writing Funk

This past week has found me in a bit of a writing funk. Over the past two months I've done a lot of flash fiction, outlined and re-outlined my romance WIP, A Montana Chance, as well as completing almost three chapters. I've done a little blogging both here and on my personal site, 2 Taking a 5th. I've neglected all my other blogs but did manage to eke out some time today to start a blog for my daughter and her extras casting company, CL Casting.

But this past week whenever I've tried to write some flash or work on my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts, nothing has clicked. Anything I've written is elementary school level and that's frustrating. My creativity has gone on vacation I guess....

In addition I've not done much reading, finding it hard to concentrate. Spent most of my time playing games on my phone (current Android, past iPhone, tablet). Talk about being out of it....LOL!

Now real life has intervened with me waking up sick yesterday, slept most of the day. Got my Rx filled today and feeling a bit better, maybe I'll finally get some writing done...writing that I can feel good about. First on the list, getting my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts done and scheduled. Then I'm tackling my novel, A Montana Chance, hoping to get enough written to claim my critique prize won in the 2012 Blog Hop Competition last month.

Hoping everyone is seeing more productivity than I have lately...what have you been up to?


  1. When I get that way I do housework... fixes my writing almost immediately ;)

  2. I took a week of after finishing the first draft of my most recent novel. I find a little down time leaves me fresh for the editing run. Just started that. Rest up. You will get you steam back up in no time!

  3. Donna,

    With my creativity recently directed towards Web design for a client, I have felt sapped and flat-lined when it comes to other projects, including my A-to-Z efforts. Still tossing about whether to go with a themed approach or free association. :)

  4. Sorry you aren't feeling well. I have to really cut down on the contests and such that I am doing because my WIPs are suffering and I need to build my back list! :)

  5. I'm right there with you. Been so busy with work stuff, I still haven't started on my A-Z challenge or posted anything new on my blog... my creative juices aren't flowing right now...
