OK, yes, leading up to the move, I really didn't have time to do any writing*, but I've been here for a month now, and I've hardly written anything, story-wise or blog-post-wise. I don't know why. I have time, energy, ideas. I'm just lacking... gumption?
I don't know. Either way, I need to stop being lazy and actually produce something. Or a lot of somethings. A few days ago, I read an article called Lies Writers Tell on Terrible Minds and it did an excellent job of lighting a fire under my ass. Unfortunately, it burnt out, but before it did, I edited a huge chunk of eleven eleven wish.
I just need something to keep me going. Suggestions?
A random aside: do other people ever feel like they're running out of time, with regards to their writing? I do. Not in the sense of worrying that I'll die before I've finished writing all the stories that I have in my head (although I do have that concern), but in the sense that, with the Shakespeare-writing monkeys and everything, other people might invent and record my ideas before I do. I was in a book store the other day and noticed a book with a title that I've been planning to use for about eight years, for a story that (so far) is less than a page long. I know it's incredibly unlikely, but what if that happens to all my ideas? I think of them, put them on the backburner, and while they're simmering away, someone else comes along, thinks of them and has them cooked and on the table in minutes. It just doesn't seem fair.
*No, really, I didn't.
