I had a lot of self-serving nonsense to spew and I wrote a post about it and deleted the post and now I’m sitting at my keyboard wondering what to say.

I mean, there’s no excuse for how long everything is taking me right now. I keep falling into this cycle of self-loathing and misery and ego, and every time I rotate back to the top, it’s like I’m starting everything over again.

I have to beat this.

I don’t know how, but I have to win, because it’s in my way. It’s interfering with my personal life, and it’s interfering with my life’s work, which is to tell stories. I want to tell stories, and I want to tell them well, and that’s basically it.

I have to win. Back to square one.

  1. I don’t know a writer who hasn’t had moments like that, whether it’s looking at a WIP or a blog post or a status on FB. Sometimes, you can’t do it at that moment. Sometimes, you can push through it but it’s like trying to walk forward through the hurricane.

    But you love to tell stories. It comes through, and it will come again to you, the story will find you and you won’t be able to keep yourself from jumping into someone’s skin. And, like all your work, it will be worth the wait.
