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?
