Screeching to a Halt

Well, I finally reached my limit! It’s not writers block, don’t worry. I’m just exhausted, mentally and physically. I’ve been pushing so hard to get through editing and revising each chapter. Now I finally get to chapter 6, which is the last thing I had been writing before deciding to begin revising previous chapters. So, there isn’t much to revise at the moment on chapter 6, but there are other threads to develop which have yet to be written. Well, maybe I’ll make another crack at it this evening. Right now, I don’t feel like doing anything. I don’t even have the energy to read a book. (The Winter King is feeling rather neglected.) 

What do you do when having one of those days in which you feel completely useless? (I don’t mean like in a depressive state. More a vegetative state.😉) How do you motivate yourself to get back into the swing of things? How do you renew your energy stores?

First off, who am I? My name is Jessica Urquhart. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, which got its start in middle and highschool, when I'd write short stories for the amusement of my friends and classmates. Currently, I'm working on my first book, my one true love of a story I've been saying I would one day write. Well, that day has come. If you'd care to follow my musings on the adventures and hurdles of writing my first fantasy book, then please, read my blog.

    1. You are probably right. I turned on the computer, opened chapter 6, scrolled through, then turned the computer off again. Lol!

  1. First, convince yourself you are not neglecting your story or us eager clammoring minions. You are simply letting the story rest and mature where the ink dries and the hidden gems find their luster. Next, tell yourself you are wonderful and you like you very much as a close friend and ally so you are going to show that love by doing something nice and relaxing for yourself. While you are treating you to some delectable delights, DON’T THINK ABOUT THE STORY. Then right when you notice you are totally disconnecting, startle yourself awake and go do some writing and editing. That keeps the nerves on edge and the creative juices flowing. I don’t do that kinda stuff cause it would kill me but you can handle it. 😉
