Writer Interuptus

Was flying along on the book like my hair was on fire and then, for the last six weeks or so, it’s been one darned thing after another.

  • prep for events
  • extra work for day job
  • resolving unexpected challenges
  • helping out friends and family

The latest has been a severely strained shoulder that means time at the keyboard is limited  before I start to posture and the pain sets in. I’ve been able to keep up with my day paperwork, my blogs, my applications, but my poor little book sits there in its folder, staring at me forlornly and waiting for me to come back and edit it.

Have to keep reminding myself

  • This too will pass. My shoulder will heal.
  • To be a writer, what I need to do is write
  • Keep at it every day, as much as I can
  • If I’ve done the best that I can do, that’s all that I can do
  • Keep track of the writing that I’m not able to do right now, so that when things open up, I know what to go to next
  • And don’t beat myself up because I’m not doing everything I’d like to at the moment.

Keep on keeping on. And know that it will get better

What do you do when you encounter bumps in the road of your writing?
