Today is IWSG Day, the last of 2013 and the only month I missed was November :(
So what am I insecure about this month?…
I recently “won” at Nano, but I don’t really see it as achieving much. It was the same last year, the whole short story thing. That’s 2 years running now that I haven’t had a “novel” at the end of November *sighs* I know 50,000 words is 50,000 words, but it’s just not the same when you’re disappointed with what you ended up with.
So now I’m looking forward to next year, as 2013 has been a bit of a damp squid on the writing front (too much going on in my life perhaps?). Have I lost my passion? My enthusiasm? I haven’t got writers block, I could pick up a pen this minute and write 1000 words. No, I’ve lost something but I’m not too sure what it is lol.
As I type I’m sitting at my desk, with my leg up on a chair as I fell down the stairs yesterday and sprained my ankle, so I’m feeling very sorry for myself…so perhaps that’s compounding the issue? Who knows, but what I do know is that if I don’t refocus, find my enthusiasm for writing again, then I could quite easily never pick up a pen again *gulp*
Perhaps I just need a new project to be excited about?
Any advice would be gratefully received right now lol
