Over the last five days, I’ve experienced what I like to call a ‘word slump’. This isn’t writer’s block… No, I know exactly where the story is headed. I even know how I have to start the next scene.
But I just can’t find the motivation to get there.
It’s not because I don’t like the story, or I’m bored of it… I’m just lacking the motivation to open the word document and face it. I don’t know why. And please feel free to tell me in the comments if you’ve had something like this or you know what could possibly be causing it. A lot of people have told me to take a break… but five days is getting a bit excessive and I can’t really afford to keep this up with my current release date.
I love the series that it’s in, and it’s making me a little sad because I was really looking forward to writing this book, and I love it 99% of the time. But lately I feel like that 1% has just completely taken over and I can’t face it at the moment.
Any help or advice would be truly appreciated. Techniques someone has used to get rid of it maybe?
