This month’s question: How do you jump-start your writing after a hiatus?
I know. I’m a day late this month. I have a good reason.
It’s a reason, but probably not a good excuse.
Back in July I left North Dakota and flew down to North Carolina to spend time with my Mom. About two weeks worth.
Two full weeks without any substantial writing.
I had bought a 5-subject notebook with every intention of filling it up with written words.
Instead, I wrote maybe three pages of short poetry.
Nothing substantial at all.
Yesterday I flew back home.
Today, as I stare at the computer monitor I find myself wondering…where do I start?
When I left two weeks ago, I suddenly dropped all the projects I was working on and took a vacation. Now, I have no idea on how restart the writing process.
I have lists of what need to be done, but it’s like I’ve hit this wall that I can’t seem to break through to that creative well of inspiration and energy to get the imaginative juice flowing again.
What about you? How do you get back in to your writing groove after a long break?
