Posts Tagged ‘writing problems’

Lately I’ve been having trouble punching out words.  Between working, reading, watching movies, and dealing with the heat, writing hasn’t really been a priority.  Which is strange because my goal is to finish my draft by the end of the summer.  I don’t have a lot of time to write during the school year because of the amount of credits I’m taking, so summer is the best time to write.  The only problem is the words tend to freeze up during the summer. Not a good thing. 

I’ve been thinking about my story for a really long time.  Everything is in my head, but I can’t seem to put the words on paper.  They always come out like a hibbly bobbly jumbo mess of words that don’t make any sense.  Everything goes too fast, my characters are confused on what to do…in fact my characters are complaining right now because I keep sending them back to the beginning of the book.  All things will sort out…eventually. Reading other books also helps me to get words going, but I can’t read either! I’m at the end of a book right now and yet I can’t seem to finish the end.  The end.  I’m right there and I can’t even pull through. 

What is my problem? Exhaustion? Laziness? Overwhelmed by an insurmountable pile of work? I don’t know, but whatever it is, it’s very vexing.  If I keep up with this pace I won’t be able finish.  And if I keep changing things I’ll never finish.  

Oh boy.
