In a Writing Funk
I don't know what my problem is, but I can't seem to find the drive to write. It's not that my Muse has taken a prolonged vacation in the Bahamas without me. I have plenty of ideas to work on, several stories that are in various stages of completion, and new ones coming at me at a normal pace (if there is such a thing as normal in writing!). So inspiration is not the problem. Neither is creativity. Some of the ideas I'm coming up with are very creative, indeed. I have more than enough to work with, to work on.
Still I can't seem to find the will to just sit down and write.
And I don't know why.
I love to write. Writing is one of the most important aspects of my life, after my family, of course. I live to write.
So why can't I?
I am in the midst of some kind of a writing funk where the ideas are there but the drive isn't. Maybe it's because I have a lot going on in my personal life right now and I'm getting too drained emotionally as I worry about my family to be able to sit down and write. Maybe it's because I'm in a knitting flow right now and I'm spending more time doing that (it's a great way to relax when you're stressed and boy, am I stressed right now!) than anything else. I really don't know.
Have you ever found yourself in one of these funks? If so, how did you get yourself out of it? I would really appreciate some advice so I can get back to doing what I love - write.
