All Dried Up
I guess this is what they call "Writer's Block"?
I've never had it before, and I guess that's because I've never considered myself A Writer till recently. When you're just hammering out your rant for the day (while at a red light, via Blackberry!) you don't worry about how it reads, and therefore it reads just fine.
I have SO MUCH TO SAY, and I've been given great opportunities to say it. I have some wonderful, well-researched articles in the pipeline but right now, they read like mud. Part of it is that I'm in the throes of Christmas, and I know that Sean will be heading out in the new year, so my time is very limited and I find my writing sounds rushed; but I also need to step back and take a breath.
I've been reading: some good books and articles on writing. And! Tomorrow I'm going to a journalism lecture at the University here. I'm learning so much, and loving it. I'll write about it all of course, eventually.
For now, I'm taking a step back. This week I have some great Quotes, and maybe (maybe) some book reviews as I've been to the library again, but don't expect any Articles of Blazing Significance here. If you've got advice, though, my writer friends, I'm listening.
