This year’s been a slow one in terms of writing. I have lacked not just physical energy at some points, but also the mental energy to arrange my thoughts into writing. Sitting down and slipping into a state of repeated useless actions helps no one. Would I count it as block? I suppose, kind of like a breezeblock in the stream, ameliorating the flow.
I have been writing some, but it has been trickling rather than a rushing whitewater. It’s picked up a little in the last week, but I seriously feel like this might be the slowest year in a while. Is speed super important when it comes to writing? Of course not, but you do like to keep up a decent level of production.
I am working hard to break out of it, to fix my energy levels, to write more. I have plenty of ideas. And not writing doesn’t do much for a writer.
