Writing Drought

If you're looking to me to find some motivation for your writing, then I suggest you move on to another blog. That's unless you gain some sort of curious satisfaction from reading about a writer struggle to put down words. 

Or maybe you're also experiencing a similar drought with your creative juices and you can sympathize with my sad situation.

August was one of the least productive months for me. About the only thing I was able to do creatively was review a few short stories and write a few notes on projects I hope to begin in the coming days. I've only written three posts on this blog, the fewest since I started four years ago.

I recall a writer telling me once that she had quit writing because she had lost her muse. I sure hope that's not happening to me. Perhaps my muse has lost me and we'll reconnect soon. 

If anything, August was a particularly busy month at the place that supports my writing. You know, regular employment that provides a paycheck on a regular basis. I believe many writers (and other artists) can relate to that.

Regardless, I hope to get re-energized and refocused. I have a few events coming up in my life that should provide some spark (and time) to the writing life. And I'm looking forward to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November as well as the Kentucky Book Fair on Nov 15.

Until the next time...

  1. I hear you and I soooo understand. It seems my painting muse is on holiday, I hope she returns very soon, otherwise my studio will become an extra bedroom! Carry on!
