I swear I didn’t forget to make a We Write Wednesday post. It just got lost in the ether.
Nevermind that, I’m here now for my post. I can partially put some of the blame of not having this post up at it’s usual time to the topic. The rut. Any writer knows the feeling. When either you can’t write for the life of you. Or worse, when you continue to write, but everything that spills onto the page is complete crap. That’s where I’m at right now.
I am in a freaking rut. I am writing just fine, but there is something off. I’m not liking my voice. Every new word I put on the page is a struggle. Even writing this post and putting my emotions out there is difficult. For me this came from simply a few days of over work in my regular job leaving me mentally drained. Then pair that with a desire to just not do anything that came after that. It’s left my writing uninspired.
So today rather than a long post about the rut because I’m sure you’ve all been there, why don’t you tell me how you feel when you’re in a rut. Maybe when I finally crawl out, I’ll write a post about how to move past the rut. For now, I just want a good oatmeal raisin cookie.
