Writing has been pretty far from my mind these days. I only got about 1,000 words written this past weekend, so I’m telling myself that I’ll get caught up when I have my “spring break” at the end of this month.
Part of my Lenten sacrifice involved giving up caffeine and chocolate (a cliché thing to give up, I know), which has been much harder than I thought it would be.* I’m also wondering if the lack of caffeine is contributing to my lack of zeal for writing, but I don’t really think so. A few years back, I gave up caffeine for more than a year, and it didn’t affect my writing much.
Anyway, so what I’m going to try to do this weekend is get back into writing. On Sunday night, I had a dream about one of my characters that gave me yet another idea** for how I might fix the plot problems with my current story, so that should give me something to write about. 🙂
Hope your writing is going well and that you haven’t run into writer’s block!
*On the plus side, I discovered that lemon tea is amazing and my new decaf beverage of choice.
**This particular character does not want to do what I want her to do. She has been resisting me for years now, and it’s starting to get really old!
