Have you ever read a great book and it makes you look at your own writing and go, “Oh god, what garbage!” That’s how I feel right now. Everyone feels that way for one reason or another at times. My editor’s got my book and I feel like he’s going to hate it. I’m working on an epic fantasy and I feel like I don’t have what it takes to make it wonderful. My computer keeps deleting and overwriting my files, so I never know when my work is going to disappear. The house is a mess. I overate. Lol. It’s just a nightmare. The perfect storm to keep me from writing.
So what do I do? Well, naturally, I blog about it in order to vent and stall. It’s crazy how one day, you are just bursting with inspiration and hope and then the next day, you’re like, “Nope. Never gonna happen. Why even bother. Nope.” It usually passes fairly quickly for me, but it still sucks. I mean, it’s a beautiful, peaceful day, and I’m farting around, staring out the window, thinking about how much I don’t want to write. But I mean, this best-seller ain’t gonna write itself into existence. If I don’t tell the story, who will?
I signed up for Writer’s Market. Why? Because my sci fi romance should be done (by the editor) any day now. So I’ll need to start sending it out. I got spreadsheets ready and everything to track the process.
Man, I’m glad no one knows the link to this blog. This is a pathetic entry, lol. So what am I gonna do? Well, I’m gonna get up, put on some music, and clean. Sometimes working in a clean house really gets the inspiration blooming. And hopefully, in a year when you read this, that sci fi romance will be published. Let’s see.
