First, let me apologize for this blog being dark for so long. I haven’t gone this long without a post in …well….never. But the very lack of recent posting is the focus of today’s blog.
I have lost my creating/writing mojo.
Now it wasn't caused by anything writing related, usually a writing funk happens (for me anyway) at the result of a serious writing set-back or nasty rejection. Nope, this time life has just been poking at me with a well sharpened stick. A lot.
Normally writing is my refuge from the cruelties of the rest of the world, but I think cumulative attacks on my psyche have left me drained. I really don't want to do anything, I don't feel bad (well still freaked out from our house being burgled a few days ago), but I'm just not interested in creating.
I just survived the greatest mojo-kick-starter around- Comic Con. For a day I thought I'd be fine. Then house got broken into and my mojo folded like a pack of marked playing cards. Didn't even want to do this blog since I had nothing to say.
So, I'm reaching out to you all asking for help- how can I get my focus back to what I KNOW I love? I have been reading, so that's good (I was lucky to win an advanced copy of Gail Carriger's new book (coming out in Feb- and so far it's a HOOT!!). But no urge to even think about my writing.
To be honest, it's starting to freak me out.
So any helpful mojo-kick starting ideas out there?
