Blocked

Lately, I've been questioning my abilities as a writer. I've sat down in front of the lap top this weekend and I started and stopped a million times. I tried a different tack and decided to write the scene I saw in my head, that worked for my story that got published. CRAP, UTTER DRECK! I can't make it work and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I have it all inside, I think, but it's stuck.

I feel like giving up....

Sorry to hear. :(

Sometimes if I try another creative outlet, it gets the writing juices flowing. That sounds gross. But you know what I mean. ;)

I have some great blog posts that other people wrote about the "page fright" attack that we ALL go through...Just know this is temporary and try not to beat yourself up too much. All things must pass. Thanks for joining my blog too :)

Have you seen the Top Chef finale or the new Top Pastry Chef? I'm sure you'll find something to write about there!

Sending you good thoughts,
Jon
