Sluggish Writing

It was half term last week, which meant I wasn't able to write during the day. I did make up for it by writing in the evenings. Evenings used to be my writing time before my youngest started nursery but it was so hard to get back into it. I wanted to read a book or watch telly so it was hard work convincing myself to give up that time to write instead.

Half term is over now and I'm trying to get back into my new routine of writing during the morning until I have to pick my daughter up from nursery but this week has been tough. I seem to be using any excuse not to write - checking emails and twitter, tinkering with my blog, making cups of tea after a few hundred words. I must snap out of it. Tea breaks won't write a book.

Please tell me other people have these kinds of slump! It's not like I don't know what to write as I have all the scenes noted down in front of me...


  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog - it's good to know I'm not alone! What is so hard about getting stuck into a writing session? I wish I knew! Someone recently advised setting a timer for an hour and writing until it goes off. I'm considering trying it! :-)

    1. Good luck with the timer. Let me know if it works!
