It seems I have run into a wall while working on my novel, nothing is working out with it, well, where I want to go with it is not working out. I know where I want to go with it and how I want to write it, but the words elude me, the correct words anyway.
Some people call it writers block, but I don’t think that accurately describes where I am at. I think “my muse has gone on vacation for a bit and left me behind” is a better description.
Nobody wants to read “I sat in a room” and I don’t blame them, its boring, I think I would rather watch paint dry. It needs to be dressed up a bit, into a well written thought or expression, something like,
“The couch I was sitting on was sage green, it went well with the periwinkle walls. The fresh cut lavender in the vase on the table, made the whole place smell incredible, it lingered with me long after I had left.”
See much better, but you knew that.
Usually when I run into this wall, I just write through it, but this time the wall is being very resilient, but it is nothing new by any means.
I will get through this, and back to writing my novel soon, in fact this post seems to be just flowing out of me, so I am hoping the wall is now behind me, or maybe I just needed a break from writing for a few days, who knows ?
I am sure that there are numerous ways to overcome writers block, that have been written about to great extent. I am not interested in those, what I am interested in however, is how do, You, get through your bouts of writers block, please tell.
