A Loss for Words

I have been staring at the computer screen for nearly an hour trying to find the words to say.  Blogging used to be easy.  A thought came to me, I wrote it down, hit the Publish button and it was done.

Lately, however, I find my mind wandering.  Not the kind of wandering that one needs to panic and see a doctor about; just the every day lack of concentration.  I stare out the window and think about all the things I could be writing about, yet when it comes to writing them, the thoughts are all gone.  Sometimes they come back – usually in the middle of the night when I’m too tired to get up and go to the computer.  Sometimes it’s gone forever (this usually happens with the really good ideas).

My husband tells me that it’s a sign to slow down and enjoy life more.  Maybe he’s right.  I worked on my latest novel – Before the Applause – every spare moment I had, all the while working an average of fifty hours a week. 

So I ask you, gentle readers, how do you cope with your writer’s block?

  1. Judith, I am not a writer so cannot give you advice, but your romantic husband lives with you everyday. He knows how many hours you put in a week and fifty hours is a lot. Best advise listen to your husband, whom you are very lucky to have! he is looking out for you. consider slowing down if your fans know how long a book and the time it takes to come together, all is well. people do understand. Rest and relax. for awhile and see what happens. enjoy those special moments with your husband ,I wish I had. Money ,fame, nothing can bring back my wonderful husband who worked hard all his life. Good luck, either way I will wait for another book. just keep in touch! Agatha P. Townsend
