On Writer's Block

Lately I’ve been having trouble getting going on writing. For some reason I am finding it hard to focus. Maybe it’s because I have been so caught up with looking for a new apartment, a new car, and applying to grad schools. It could also be that I haven’t worked on a sci fi story in quite a while; the style of writing can be really different. The fact that I will be rewriting for the first time in a long while has also given me some trouble, and there’s always the worry that I will edit some cool part into mediocrity, or wreck the story with inconsistencies and foolish decisions. Grg.

I think the main problem, however, is the fact that I have gotten a bit disconnected from Wolfhound. It has been a few months since I’ve worked on it, and I need to reread the whole story again to get back in touch with it. It will mean a slight delay will happen before I actually start the rewrite, but I think it will be worth getting to know Jacob again, along with the story of his journey aboard the Wolfhound. Hopefully I will be able to get that done this week, in addition to the fifty other things that are going on. Sigh. Oh well. Such is life; procrastinating it will only make the crush worse. I hope you are all doing much better than I am with this, and that life is treating you well. See ya!

  1. I know how you feel; I'm going through exactly the same thing right now. Job hunting sucks, and my current WIP is a disaster in so many ways. Good luck figuring out how to get back on track.
