Writer’s Block: Take 2

New Year’s Resolution:

will finish writing a complete draft of at least one novel.

I say that as I sit on my couch watching Netflix like

gif one

In my head, I have several ideas to write about and it plays like a movie reel constantly. I’m pretty sure I imagine it more than I write, which I think might be my problem.

Realistically, I recognize that I need to rewrite my Wattpad version of one of my stories because it truly is cringe-worthy, but it’s my favorite idea and I love that story and see the potential in it. Unfortunately I have already pictured the “rewrite” in my head so it’s like I want to speed onto #2 in the series.

I really want to actually.

Okay, I have.

Sue me.

I know, I know. Priorities, but then my head spins out and I get left sitting there like, “What do I do?”

I believe in the advise of many great authors: to just keep writing, no matter what it is, just write.

Somebody in the writing world should coin that. Just write. That’s the key slogan circulating the writing world, similar to that of Nike’s slogan Just Do It. We hear it, we write it, for the most part we actually do it.

It ruminates in our minds during these dreaded periods of writer’s block, but you know what Nike? Sometimes a slogan just isn’t enough to get me off the couch and to the gym.

Rant over.

Writers Block: Take 1

I keep telling myself I will write tonight. I even feel inspired. I turned on my Spotify, set the mood music, and was ready. Yet, instead of rewriting the story I started four years (you know, to take the cringe worthy parts out), I entertained myself with inspirational writing videos on YouTube and funny memes on Pinterest.

Ahh Batman–

 

Back to the original purpose of this post: let’s stay distracted even further and continue not to write.

It’s crazy how easy it is to do that. Please tell me I am not the only one who does this. My sitting for the past four hours has been wasted and so far has only resulted in a crick in my neck and a numb behind.

I’m going to try to refocus myself with some inspiration…this is all I came up with.

I mean, I laughed…

Yes… I got this off of Pinterest…

Right, supposed to be getting back to writing.
