I literally have not written in any of my WIPs in weeks. Not Zombie Nom Nom. Not Captivate. Not that other Side Project that is a total of four pages long. Nothing. And it truly isn't that I don't want to, or that I don't know where I'm going, because I do. Zombie even has a rough (really, really rough) outline. And Captivate, even though I'm completely clueless on what I want to come next, I at least know an idea of where I'm going. But I simply cannot write. It won't come.
And even when it does come, I only get about a page, and most of it is crap.
So, this is usually where I email Sam with my whines and KILL ME NOWs and burning jealousy because SHE doesn't have DAYS where she CANT WRITE. However, instead I have a song.
Because music makes my world go 'round.
So do my dogs, but mostly they just step on the laptop and make words like hgshajaaaaaaaaoebfhskllkshaveusj.
(Although they take after my creativity, they are no use to these particular stories that I'm writing in English.) (They will be big author stars to the aliens.) (I'm very proud.)
Anyways, I really think this song has helped with my horrid writer's block. Because, seriously, why am I letting it stop me from writing? Does it matter if it's crap? As long as I get something down, I can always edit and change. As long as I make progress, I'll be able to better it later, but I'll have the chance to get somewhere where I'm not so completely stuck.
So yeah, this song goes to you, Writer's Block. I never gave you permission to keep me from doing what I do. Who made you "King of Anything"?
(King of Anything; Sara Bareilles)
What do you do to defeat the wretched Writer's Block O' Doom?
Have a good weekend, everyone!!
