I hadn’t actually really got writer’s block in Nano last year. I think partially it was because I was still new to my whole ‘Olympic Dreams’ novel idea, and I was so eager to ‘win’ Nano. Now that I come to the editing stage months after, and find myself with really just a basic idea filled up with 30,000 words, I don’t know where to start. Last week I started editing a bit. Then I just stopped.
I’ve tried to start editing again, but I just find excuses. It’s the holidays at the moment and I’d thought I’d be able to get quite a bit done. But clearly not so! Things distract me, like making a new blog, postaday, Nano, and my real daily life. And since it’s the holidays, I want to have some fun! (I can see I’m getting rather off topic here…)
The thing is, I actually want to write, but there’s like a barrier stopping me from doing that. I think it’s writer’s block, finally coming to haunt me after a peaceful Nanowrimo last year, but isn’t writer’s block when you just don’t want to write at all, where you have no inspiration at all?
I keep convincing myself, saying it’s alright, “it’s just Writer’s Blocks Sister.” But even so, my novel’s still there, unedited. (Is that even a word?) Maybe it’s because I’m starting to think up grand ideas again, ideas that probably won’t possible come true. Things like changing the novel a lot, and writing a lot more, so it has something like a 100,000k word count with three parts to it. Or maybe it’s all the new ideas buzzing around my head.
So now I’m not even sure if I’ll finish a good copy of ‘Olympic Dreams’ before Nano this year.
Gee, I hate writer’s block, sister or not.
