Motivation Block

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.
