Worlds Collide…

Posted 23 February, 2010 by DLWhite in Writers Write 2 Comments

Things I need to do vs things that get in the way. That’s what I am dealing with, over here. I need time and space and energy and a clear mind to write. I don’t have all of those elements, but I’m working on it. Dealing with some personal issues that I would love to exorcise with writing. Unforunately I think the writing will be more self involved and not fiction. But we will see.

I’d like to pull the short that I wanted to revamp and see if some ideas for turning it into a 3k -to 5k short story come to me. I feel like I am struggling unnecessarily with this? Why doesn’t this come easy? Why aren’t I overflowing with stories to tell? Why am I not just DYING to write, right now?

  1. Writing requires a lot of emotional and mental energy. When we’re zapped of both, it’s no wonder writing sometimes comes hard. But I do think the extra effort is often worth it. I find writing so cathartic that I’d probably go even crazier if I wasn’t able to write during rough times. Hope things start looking up for you!

  2. I find I have the opposite problem. I have plenty of ideas, but lack the willpower to stick to one till the bitter end. I guess it’s recognizing what we need to work on, and doing just that.
