There are times when writing comes easy, and times it's a fight. I know my limits. I can't focus on multiple things at the same time. I have to pick and choose my focus. November was writing focused. I was energized by the challenge to write a novel in a month. Writing came easy during that 30 day window. Then the holidays hit, life hit. Family, work, sports....there's always something to fill the time. Before I know it months have passed and what do I have to show for it? Not much except tired eyes and no motivation.
I have managed to add to a novel I'd started before my November writing frenzy. This is a good thing, but for some reason I'm tired of that story. I'm tempted to just throw it out and forget it. But I've done that before and usually I regret it.
Hopefully Spring, the season of new beginnings, will find me with a renewed passion....a spark to create. Winter has been too long. It's time to awaken the senses, the imagination and strive forward with fortitude.
Onward I go...
