Anybody have any suggestions?
For answers, I went to my trusty friend Mr. Google.
Sometimes the Writer Blues (WB) grab hold of you when you become discouraged over a work in progress (WIP). Other times WB sneaks up on you after a completed project. Such is my case.
I open my notebook and flip through my idea list. Nope, nope, dumb, who the hell wrote that?
I open my WIP file folder on my computer. A folder filled with story starts that sounded promising when I jotted down the opening paragraphs or even first chapters. Nope, nope, oh hell no!
Okay, clear mind. Take a walk. Back inside, short walk, it’s hot in Texas.
Do a mindless task, laundry, yes, do some laundry. We now have clean underwear. But didn’t do jack for generating a story idea.
That’s when I noticed the first symptoms. A half-gallon of Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream is almost gone and the wine cooler needs replenishing. Maybe I should check into one of those wine by the month clubs. Wonder if there is one for ice cream too. Hmm… I’ll Google it.
Now, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, the WB’s.
And how can I rid myself of this dang malady!
