No inspiration

Posted on Monday, August 25, 2008 in Writing

Suddenly, I lost my inspiration to write. I think I can guess why. Lately I’ve had mood swings. Some nights, I almost cry. In between I feel perfectly ok. Oh, well. Blogging and writing fan fiction can wait. The real problem is that I still haven’t been able to finish my novel, but nothing’s really changed there, so that’s a different problem.

Of course, in the meantime, I still have a couple of other finished books that I’ll submit to a publisher. As long as I can stay cheerful and I’m doing my best with that. Going for walks, even on little outings, looking for cool things to photograph, watching movies, even once or twice a week a tv show I actually like.

Though as far as tv is concerned, this is probably the worst time in a long time. Right now, as far as I know, there’s just one thing worth watching. Don’t get me wrong. I’d complain just as much if there was one or more shows per night, but this is going a little too far in the other direction. No wait, I think Heroes will be back. In that case, I can’t complain.

Bring on the comments

  1. That feeling comes and goes for me as well. Sometimes I think it’s just writer’s block, but other times I think it’s my lack of self confidence to finish writings that I’ve started, let alone send them out to be considered for publishing.
    Going for walks will help though.

  2. Hi Meredith,

    I tried to comment on your blog, but I couldn’t.

    Writer’s block, lack of self confidence – in my case it could be both, but right now I guess I also have the mood swings to deal with.

    Anyway, good luck with your writing and getting things published. 🙂


  3. Everything is ok. Except for tv. Don’t invest an ounce of hope in it. Just simply get rid of it, tv is the worst fake one can encounter. It says shut up, sit down, absorb and listen. It grabs the right hemisphere of your brain and it stupidly kills the mind. I finally understood it a little more than ten years ago and simply got rid of the lying box. Never regretted it.
    With my best thoughts. Sincerely.
