True: Kate tends to fall off stationary objects, like chairs and couches.
Do you ever have one of those days? You know, one of THOSE days?
Yeah. I'm having one. Everything I write seems awful, my manuscript is bogged down with purple prose and pathetic attempts at character development, and all potential titles are, to be quite frank, lame. I tried to write. Instead, I ended up staring at the blank TV, folding pieces of tape into triangles, and throwing erasers at the wall. ADD kicked in fast and hard.
My motivation has gone on vacation. A long, very expensive vacation, in a place with no cell phone service or wireless connections. We have had no contact at all. Thus the quality (and quantity) of my writing has suffered.
So I ask you this, dear readers (all 10 of you). How do you motivate yourself? What do you do when your motivation joins your muse on an island in Hawaii, leaving you to flounder in the muddled realm of your own brain? How do you cope? Why are we writers in the first place?
Sigh. I'm going to go wallow in despair now. If, by any chance, you happen to come across my motivation, please call and let me know. I will collect it promptly.
