Welcome to the place where I rant, rave and discuss books, writing, the town of Cobourg Ontario and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Writer's block already?

It's true, I haven't even started the actually writing yet and I'm having writer's block. I'm stuck. I know how the main conflict is going to work itself out, but I'm not overly impressed with it. To explain what I mean I have to tell you a little bit about myself. Last year I started a novel and it was awesome. Every time I came up with a new twist or turn I got a rush like no other. I would get high and giddy, what an awesome feeling. I haven't gotten that once with this project. I never finished the other project because while I was working on it, my sister was murdered. My life was turned upside down and inside out, so trying to go back to anything before that is very difficult, in the case of the novel, it's impossible. Maybe someday...
So I'm disappointed that feeling doesn't come about with this novel and I'm stuck on the romance storyline of it all. So I did what any warmblooded woman would do, I went shopping! I got new pens, colorful sticky notes, highlighters, paper, a few notebooks, dividers and other paraphernalia. It hasn't helped the situation but I feel better and I got to spend time color-coding and organizing everything - which really just means I spent time making myself feel like I was being productive on the progress of my novel when I was just killing time. Hey if you can't fool yourself, who can ya fool?
