Insecure Writers Support Group, a fantastic group founded by the amazing Captain Ninja, Alex J. Cavanaugh. We air out our insecurities, triumphs, frustrations and we support and encourage each other. If you're a writer, you need to join, you'll be happy you did.
I wish I could talk about something profound and encouraging today, but the ugly truth is my life has been a real stew of stress and problems of late. I am having a hard time creating anything beyond my blog posts. My writing has gone to shit. I have allowed all of this outside ugliness to fog up the view, narrow my vision. My characters have been left to their own devices and they certainly aren't talking to me anymore. They're mad as hell and I don't blame them. I sit at my computer, day after day, staring at my story and I feel nothing. In all honesty, I want to shut down and go to bed.
I need to get my mojo back. I am hoping this move to a new place will be a start. Taking myself out of the drama around here will ease my stress alot and hopefully improve not only my creativity, but my health too.
What do you do to get your creativity going in times of stress? How do you find it within yourself to write when you feel tapped out?
Stay tuned tomorrow when I answer 11 crazy questions from the awesome Julie at Gypsy in My Soul. You're going to be surprised. And don't forget about Captain Alex's CassaFire tour.
