Writing is easy
Life at times is not.
I’m not sure how this happens or why, but the minute I sit down and start writing the words and images and stories are there.
So what do I do?
I stay away from my laptop- I leave my notebook at home and I don’t listen to music.
It’s an odd sort of self destructive thing and I’m not sure why I do it.
But I hope I can open the door and walk through and start to write again.
The thing is, I would love to hear how other people deal with this so let me know in the comment section.

I am not writing much at the moment either. Sometimes it is just too physically hard and exhausting shoving those commas around and staring at all those words. Sometimes it seems that it has only ever been about words, they are my hmmer and nails, my bricks and mortar. So I stop and do something else. At the moment I am crocheting a rug, watching movies and trying out new recipes, only writing when the spirit moves me.
I am the same way. When I am in a crappy mood, I tend to wrap myself into it, wallow in it, binge watch crap t.v. And then I go outside…
I do the same thing, plus I also have a box of art supplies that I’m also pretty good at avoiding.

She talks about similar things and ways to get motivated. I’m taking a class with her now, actually.
I am not writing either.
