I want to write it, I have the time (if I’m careful) to write it, I have a great idea for it, but I just can’t get started …
Yes, it’s another dreaded post about writer’s block. I thought I had it licked, but no, not happening. I gave myself a deadline of Nov. 1st to get this story done, which should have given me an entire month to write 4000 words. NO prob, right? I think it’s that first 100 words that’s killing me.
Part of me wonders if I should just give up on this one and move on, but I really want something to submit to this anthology. And I really like me idea.
Getting started? Maybe once I do, it will just flow and be done. That’s what happens sometimes. That’s what happened with the last story and that seemed to work out all right.
Ok. Enough whining. Any advice, my writer friends? Or even non-writer friends?
Maybe I just need an all-nighter with a notebook, a pot of coffee, and the kitchen table. Sometimes that works, even if it does freak out the dogs.
