What I’m experience right now, I wouldn’t call writer’s block. It’s not that I sit down and can’t think of anything to write. I’m more in the throes of what I’d call motivation block–I have a bunch of things I “should” work on, and a bunch of ideas floating around in my head, but none of the things that I should work on appeal to me. Instead, I want to keep writing on my novel, which is presently out with my beta readers. And I need to take a break from it to improve it more anyway.
I think that my regular job and family stuff is playing into this at least a little. Work is extremely hectic, to the point where I’m working through lunches. Guess when I would normally write? And between family illnesses and other issues, my personal life is just as hectic. It really saps my motivation.
I know that the solution is the same. I should just put my but in the chair and make myself work on something. But that’s really hard to do when life is so hectic and I just want to relax in my free time.
