I HATE block.
I have been working for the past couple of weeks on a prequel story that I’ll be giving away for free to introduce the series to new readers. I say that I’ve been working on it but the truth is that I have been staring at half a story and the utter inability to put the words that are in my head down on paper.
This has become something of a major problem for me. I have been told to just set this aside for a while and go on to something else – that it will pass and I’ll be back into the swing of things. Well, that has proven to be no good. I have set it aside with the thought that maybe I can work on book 3 for a while.
BAM! Head butt right into a block.
So, I put all the writing aside and tried to find other things to keep me occupied. Things like talking to my “imaginary” friends online, play games, read and this weekends offering, a Walking Dead marathon on Netflix. Nothing has really worked. I can’t really enjoy any of it as in the back of my mind is the sneaky little thought that I’m wasting time when I should be working on writing.
So what do I have to show for it?
Frustration and a new addiction to AMC’s Walking Dead.
