I am struggling to find time for my writing lately. The moment I think I have some spare time and I can devote that to my writing something will inevitably come up and I run out of time. Even finding the time to post on my blog is sometimes challenging.
I know this is nothing new for anyone of us. Life is a lot busier now a days. The kids are older and they each have stuff going on, extra curriculum activities, homework etc.
It’s not just time that seems to elude me though, it’s inspiration as well. I have been working on this one book for what seems like ages now and I just can’t get passed this one bit. I have been adding to it everyday but it’s only a sentence here a paragraph there. In my head I can see what has to happen, I can see the whole story, but I’m struggling to get it down in writing.
The idea of leaving the story and starting a new one is tempting indeed, but I have never not completed a story before, and I hesitate to start now.
This is more than just writers block. I feel that I have lost interest in the story. If my story doesn’t interest me what hope does it have of interesting others?
