It’s now three days after Christmas, and I can honestly say it’s been way too long since I’ve written anything. I can only recall writing one day since Thanksgiving to be honest. My best friend and fellow wench Samantha sat and I had our own little write in, but I didn’t accomplish much.
Why is it so hard to write around the holidays? Between hosting the holidays, present shopping, and decorating, I have had every excuse in the book to avoid my computer and opening Scrivener. I was able to make time in the summer and fall with all of the outdoor activities and birthday parties, but I had no will to fit in writing time between Thanksgiving to New Years. Even today three days later, this is the first time I’ve opened my computer, and it wont be open long as I’ve got my nephews birthday party this afternoon.
The characters in my head still have stories to be told, and their being very patient. I don’t like it. I think it’s time to get on the ball and give them the story they deserve, but the question still remains. How do I get back into the swing of things and find my writing motivation? What do you do when you’ve hit a slump? Suggestions are welcomed and appreciated here. I’m nowhere near ready to be done writing, I just need a little kick in the pants to get started again.
