My muse is just plain contrary.
I decided to take a break from Doorways and started working on Guardian. As soon as I finished writing the scene I wanted... The plot outline occurred to me, weaving James and Ward's story back into the plot as I intended all along.
I must say that I am thrilled by this. But why couldn't I just have done it while I was still in the "strike while the iron is hot" mood?
That said, I might take a break from writing in general for a short while. Maybe just until January.
Even though I've been quite productive these past few days, it feels as if I'm wringing my already over wrung mind for whatever ideas I might have left. It's just not a fun feeling to have. Especially not when I'm doing something that I love.
I actually had a headache after I wrote only 1000 words.
Maybe I shouldn't push myself. But as I said. Now that I am contemplating taking a break, I feel that draw. That intense desire to sit down and start crafting a story. Whether it's an old one or a new one.
So I want to write. I really do. So why then do I feel such a resistance when I am writing?
Have any of you experienced something similar?
