Stress Is Clouding My Writing

13 Nov

It has been awhile since I have written a post here. I apologize for that however, I am back!

For the past few months life has been a rollercoaster of events and emotions. While I was riding that rollercoaster my mind became a fog. My creativity seemed like it was buried deep, so deep that I couldn’t dig into it no matter what I did. Not sure if it will come back or if it’ll ever come back. One thing I do know is that this sudden loss of not being able to continue writing my fantasy/sci-fi novel scares me greatly. I look at my short notes, the little bit of research that I have done and really focusing on trying to grab that inspiration from movies or even me having conversations with my kids. My mind is blank, it just doesn’t want to imagine the next scene in my novel.

I have been thinking a lot about this issue I am having and I think part of the problem is when there is so much going on in my life there’s no room for creating. I need to find ways to clear my mind to make room for imagining the scenes that so desperately want to be written. Another problem, I think I have written about this before or maybe I posted it elsewhere, my kids, husband and several others demand so much of me that by the time I get a chance to write I am exhausted.

I think stress in our lives can really wreak havoc on our creativity and imagination, we can’t create when we are trying to solve serious issues. Writing our stories and novels should be one of our top priorities but when you have ten things that need to be at the utmost top priority that writing takes a back seat. If any of you are having the same problem I am I have one thing to say, we will get through it. Maybe not today, maybe even not next month but who knows maybe in a year that novel will be finished as you feverishly type for 20 hours a day without being able to stop.
