Gahhhhhhhhh!

*head desk*

Today has been a very odd day all-in-all on SO many different fronts.  The good things about today are:  1)  It was nice and sunny.  A real summer day.  2)  The sun shone.  3)  I think I know how to begin the next writing project.  4)  Cheyenne came by for a wonderful visit.

The things that did not go as well as planned:  1)  My left arm is hurt.  Thankfully I am a righty.  2)  The current story is continuing to thwart me.  3)  The word count for today is dismal.

Maybe tomorrow I will run away to the library with some notebooks and just relax from computer writing for a day.

What do you do to jump-start the creative fluids when a project simply isn’t cooperating?  Maybe something you do can help me.

Thanks in advance for everyone who suggests something.

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    Well, sometimes I switch to another project. Or read something I WANT to read. On the other hand, I’ve been known to worry a difficult part of a story for days, falling asleep (or not) trying to tell it yet another way.

    • I believe I know how to get from *here* to *there*. Luckily I don’t have to re-write a huge chunk – merely a couple of paragraphs. I hope. *fingers crossed* Oh, and I also dove into reading, too. Reading and getting my mind onto a different subject helped relax the brain cells. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. While I love blogging, in no way would I call myself a writer/author. But when I hit a brick wall it helps to step away to a quiet space, meditate an listen to my inner voice. Most of the time it works for me. Hope tomorrow is better for you than your today has been.
